WATCH: RuPaul Talks LGBT Rights


The 'Drag Race' host reveals his feelings on the past, present, and future of equality.

On the heels of crowning the Drag Race season 5 champion Jinkx Monsoon, RuPaul, talks with the New York Timesabout the current state of LGBT rights and reveals he's concerned the positive momentum the LGBT community has been enjoying in recent years could change direction in the future.

"I've been around for a long time. The pendulum always swings," RuPaul says. "Will it swing back to that type of small closed window? More than likely it will."

Nevertheless the iconic performer isn't letting worries about the possible future keep him from bringing aspects of LGBT culture to the mainstream. "So, in the meantime, we're enjoying Drag Race," he says.
