Reaching its 13th season, RuPaul’s Drag Race has continued to break barriers and set the bar for queer representation in media. The show itself, its beloved queens, and inspired content exist as instantly recognizable cultural currency, which start meaningful conversations in the worlds of entertainment, social justice, civil rights, and beyond. In addition to legendary lip syncs and iconic runway looks, RuPaul’s Drag Race creates a platform for the LGBTQ community to share their stories and inspire the next generation to be uniquely themselves, while championing diverse queens from all backgrounds. The monumental impact of the franchise can hardly be argued as RuPaul's Drag Race maintained its status as the most-awarded reality competition show in Emmys history after taking home six more wins in 2021. RuPaul has sustained his legacy as an entertainment icon by taking home his 11th Emmy win last year, breaking the record for most Emmy wins by a person of color.
