RUPAUL

THERE ARE FEW BIGGER STARS IN QUEER CELEBRITY CULTURE THAN RUPAUL. EARLIER THIS YEAR, RU CONQUERED ATTITUDE AS OUR GLORIOUS COVER STAR AND DELIVERED A MIGHTILY THOUGHT-PROVOKING INTERVIEW IN WHICH HE GOT REAL ABOUT A FEW BIG GAY ISSUES. NEVER ONES TO GO WITHOUT, WE WERE CHOMPING AT THE BIT TO MEET THE MAN FOR MORE WHEN HE SWUNG BY THE UK ON HIS LATEST VISIT...

Ru the World

It’s pretty cool when your icons actually turn out to be the most awesome people in the world. RuPaul is not just your average celebrity drag queen. He is the ultimate celebrity drag queen/gender discombobulist/pop diva/film actor/TV star that all future of the same will be compared to. And rightly so. RuPaul has proven himself to be more than just a mere finger snapping, sharp talking wig and heels wearing wonder — he’s intelligent, eloquent and fully aware of the most pressing political and social issues affecting our LGBT community.

On this latest visit across the Atlantic, Ru’s on a mission. Along with celebrity judges Jonathan Ross and Katie Price — and on behalf of TruTV — he’s here to crown one lucky drag queen ‘UK Ambassador’ for RuPaul’s Drag Race. At a spectacular show at London’s Café de Paris, over twenty stunning drag artistes battled it out for the honour, with the winner The Vivienne walking away with the top prize. In addition to being flown out to LA, The Vivienne will also be reporting exclusively for Attitude from behind the scenes of the next series of Drag Race.

Ru’s hired out an entire hotel suite at the trendy Ham Yard Hotel in Soho for this run of media meet & greets. You always know when you’re about to meet a ‘big deal’ when they arrange a posh hotel suite as the location for the interview. I nibble on a cookie and make small talk with his cheery manager before I’m ushered in to meet Ru.

About Attitude

This very special edition of Attitude is our biggest ever. It marks our first annual Pride Awards, which were created to champion the unsung heroes of the LGBT community; all of our 11 recipients grace the cover, and their extraordinary stories are told inside. They will all be honoured at an event in London, hosted by Alan Cumming, on 26 June. This issue also marks Attitude’s 21st birthday, and inside we feature 21 ordinary 21 year olds from the LGBT community who speak about what matters to them as they come of age in Britain in 2015. The issue also includes interviews with Roisin Murphy, Little Mix, Mary Lambert, Aston Merrygold, Kavana, Collabro, actor Layton Williams, and director Bill Condon; as well as features on the rebranding of Switchboard, and a look back at Queen’s iconic Live Aid performance 30 years on. All this, plus our regular fashion spreads, columnists, real life features, travel and fitness.
