RuPaul Andre Charles (born November 17, 1960), best known mononymously as RuPaul, is an American actor, drag queen, model, author, and recording artist. RuPaul was born and raised in San Diego and later moved to Atlanta to study performing arts. He settled in New York City where he became a popular fixture on the nightclub scene.

RuPaul achieved international fame as a drag queen with the hit song "Supermodel (You Better Work)" from her album Supermodel of the World (1993) and later sang a duet with Elton John on the song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart".

RuPaul is noted among drag queens for her indifference toward the gender-specific pronouns used to address him—both "he" and "she" have been deemed acceptable, as stated in her autobiography: "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." RuPaul has also played men in a number of roles, and makes public appearances both in and out of drag. In 1999, RuPaul was awarded the Vito Russo Award at the GLAAD Media Awards in addition to being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by The Most Beautiful Transsexuals in the World Association in 2002. « hide
