The Campaign To Get RuPaul An Emmy

The folks behind RuPaul's Drag Race have come up with a pretty awesome campaign to lobby for the show to win an Emmy award. There's a Facebook group and even a poster with the tagline, "Two Hosts For The Price Of One Emmy!" It's so very Victor/Victoria. In this video, you'll see celebs — from Margaret Cho to Jennifer Hudson to Johnny Weir and CNN's Jane Velez-Mitchell — express their love for Ru, and for the little drag queen show that could.

Well it could win an Emmy in the "Most Unchallenged Use of a Pun on a Dehumanizing Transphobic Slur Because Nobody Gives a Shit About Trans Women" category.

That's a category, right?

(Yes, Drag Race is awesome for featuring people of color and queerness so prominently, but god damn, the use of "shemail" bothers the fuck out of me)
