For the last three decades of his career, RuPaul Charles has been cementing his place in American pop culture. Now, the Emmy-winning host of RuPaul’s Drag Race will see his legacy cemented in a much more literal sense.
RuPaul will be receiving his own star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. The world-famous drag queen will see his name amongst the newest additions to the walk on Friday, March 16. His star will be located directly outside the offices of World of Wonder, the production company responsible for RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Ru is in good company — fellow recipients this year include Jennifer Lawrence, Shonda Rimes, Ryan Murphy, Lin-Manuel Miranda and more. The drag star’s name will be joining over 2,600 other names along Hollywood Boulevard.
This just adds another accolade to RuPaul’s growing collection of accomplishments — he won two consecutive Emmy awards for hosting Drag Race, along with a few Critic’s Choice and GLAAD Media awards, and has seen his show’s ratings skyrocket over the last year.
