RuPaul Andre Charles (born November 17, 1960), best known as simply RuPaul, is an American actor, drag queen, model, and singer-songwriter, who first gained fame in the 1990s when he appeared in a wide variety of television programs, films, and musical albums. Previously, he was a fixture on the Atlanta and New York City club scenes. RuPaul has on occasion performed as a man in a number of roles, usually billed as RuPaul Charles. RuPaul is noted among famous drag queens for his indifference towards the gender-specific pronouns used to address him—both "he" and "she" have been deemed acceptable. "You can call me he. You can call me she. You can call me Regis and Kathie Lee; I don`t care! Just as long as you call me." He hosted a short-running talk show on VH1, and currently hosts a reality television show called RuPaul`s Drag Race.

In mid 2008, RuPaul began producing RuPaul`s Drag Race, a reality television game show which aired on Logo in February 2009. On the show, top drag queens compete to be selected by RuPaul and a panel of judges as the number one drag performer in the country. The winner of Season 1 was Bebe Zahara Benet. One of the contestants, Nina Flowers, was chosen by fans as "Miss Congeniality" through voting on RuPaulsDragRace.com. In publicity preparation for the new show, RuPaul made appearances as a guest on several other shows in 2008 including as a guest judge on Season 5, Episode 6 of Project Runway and as a guest "chef" on Paula`s Party. Logo`s Second Annual "NewNowNext Awards" 2009 were hosted by RuPaul. There he performed his new single "Jealous Of My Boogie".
