Drag Race: RuPaul on the Appeal of his Reality Competition Series

RuPaul’s goal is to take Drag Race to every city in the world.

With multiple international versions of the reality competition series, RuPaul was asked at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday how many more versions he would like to see.

“How many countries are there?” he said. “There are drag queens all over the place.” He then suggested that “Drag Race: Rwanda” would not be out of the question, while a U.K version is launching in October.

“Drag is dangerous,” he continues. “Drag is not politically correct. Drag will never be mainstream…We are all God in drag. That is a radical thought for most people.”

RuPaul earned the award for best host of a reality or competition series, his fourth straight win in the category. His fellow nominees this year were Ellen DeGeneres for “Ellen’s Game of Games,” Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman for “Making It,” Marie Kondo for “Tidying Up,” and James Corden for “The World’s Best.”
