“Wow, thank you so much to the Academy and you wonderful people here tonight,” RuPaul said in his acceptance speech. “All the people at World of Wonder and Viacom-CBS who have been so wonderful, but a big thank you to all of our lovely children on our show from around the world. You know, they are so gracious to tell their stories of courage and how to navigate this difficult life, which is even more difficult today. This is for you. And for the kids watching, you have a tribe waiting for you. We’re waiting for you, honey: come to Mama Ru. Thank you very much.”
