Take Me To Your Leader ... And By That, I Mean RuPaul Comments (0)

RuPaul speaks to Billboard about his new Butch Queen album, as well as his thoughts on gay rights and on the function RuPaul's Drag Race has in the gay world.

On the latter:

When I was coming up, I had mentors who taught me about Tennessee Williams and Tallulah Bankhead and Truman Capote and [Federico] Fellini—all that stuff. That sort of went away at one point, for young gay people. So I'm so proud of Drag Race for taking up the slack in that department, because so many young kids around the world, in remote places around the world, get to watch Drag Race and learn about Paris Is Burning or Grey Gardens. Even just attitudes toward drag—different styles of drag. At Drag Race and through my music, I sort of carry the torch of the gay movement, the drag movement. Really, the outsider movement.

He says of his new album that he means it as a full-on tribute to all things drag:

You know, drag queens are like the Marines of the LGBT movement. Drag queens show up, they suit up, and they're ready to serve. Butch Queen is really paying homage to that. It's as if I had a vogue ball, this album would be the soundtrack to it....
