RuPaul Dedicates Emmy to Late ‘Drag Race’ Star Chi Chi DeVayne

During his Emmy win, RuPaul paid tribute to Drag Race queen Chi Chi Devayne, who died at the age of 34 in August.

During his acceptance speech for outstanding host for a reality or competition program, he wasted no time.

“I’d like to dedicate this Emmy to one of my girls, Chi Chi DeVayne. May you rest in power and perfection,” he said.

RuPaul also praised his fellow “LGBT brothers and sisters,” saying, “Tonight the only political statement I want to make is this: love. Love for our LGBT brothers and sisters, love for our Black queens and brown queens and love for the United States of America.”

We love you, Ru!
