RuPaul Slays Record For Emmy Wins By Person Of Color As ‘Drag Race’ Nabs Fourth Reality Competition Series Trophy

RuPaul has made Emmys history, again, shattering the record for the most Emmys won by a person of color as Drag Race nabs the Outstanding Competition Series honor for the fourth consecutive year.

Upon receiving the history-making honor from Allyson Felix and Jessica Long, the legendary Drag Race host dedicated his win to the LGBTQ community and queer youth.

“Really thanks to all of our lovely children on our show from all around the world. They’re so gracious to tell their stories of courage how to navigate this difficult life that’s more difficult today,” he said. “For you kids watching, you have a tribe that is waiting for you.”

He continued: “We are waiting for you, baby. Come on to Mama Ru.”

At the 73rd annual Emmy Awards on Sunday, RuPaul surpassed Something the Lord Made and Out of the Ashes cinematographer Donald A. Morgan, who previously held the record with five honors.
