Today is a national holiday: No, it’s not Thanksgiving—it’s RuPaul’s birthday! On this day, centuries ago, RuPaul Andre Charles sashayed into this world and went to change drag—and the world—forever.
From his club kid days in New York’s East Village to The RuPaul Show on VH1, his various albums, and now the Emmy-winning juggernaut RuPaul’s Drag Race, Ru has been blazing a trail for decades.
Below watch as Trixie Mattel, Katya, Peppermint, Bendalecreme, Ginger Minj, Coco Montrese, and a host of Drag Race queens and friends send birthday love to Ru on his big day.
Happy birthday to our most favorite squirrel friend!
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7: RuVealed airs Thursdays at 8/7c on Logo. And rev your engines for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3, debuting soon on VH1.
