RuPaul is married! The iconic queen and Emmy-winning Drag Race host revealed the exciting news during an interview with Ross Mathews on Hollywood Today Live on Wednesday after being asked if he and his boyfriend of 23 years, Georges LeBar, would ever tie the knot. "I don't think I've said this on television before. We are married." Georges owns a 60,000-acre ranch in Wyoming, a place RuPaul visits frequently but calls "the most isolated place on Earth." "I dress up in the most gorgeous Westernwear . . . but nobody cares."
The couple married in January on the 23rd anniversary of when they met - in 1994, on the dance floor at famed NYC gay club Limelight - after "looking into it for tax breaks and financial things." RuPaul further explained the reason behind their decision to say "I do" in an interview with ET. "What's happening politically right now, you know, you never know what could turn around at this point," he said, alluding to the current administration's outlook on gay marriage and LGBT rights. "Who thought that this would happen, what's happening in Washington right now?"
"We are devoted to each other," he continued. "We don't stand on ceremony. We thought, we don't have to get married. But then, in light of what's happening currently in the world today, what's happening in Washington, we thought, you know what? Let's do it. Let's just do it, because there's too much at stake with our businesses ... so, that's why we did it." Congrats to RuPaul and Georges!
