“Drag samples all of pop culture. So DragCon is like Comic-Con, Beautycon, Vidcon and Chaka Khan all rolled into one! It’s where sensitive, creative souls and out-of-the-box thinkers come to see and be seen. And nothing, especially in today’s political climate, beats spending time IRL with your tribe.”

I didn’t get to interview RuPaul “IRL,” only via emailed questions and answers, but even via type, Ru rules when it comes to quotes and quips, and he keeps it — ironically, some might say — “real,” too.
