The crowd at Toronto Pride were treated to a surprise this weekend when drag superstar RuPaul Charles delivered an epic and inspirational speech about acceptance.
‘A lot of people come from families that, for whatever reason, don’t accept them,’ RuPaul says.
‘Here young people have found their family’
The speech, lasting 15 minutes in total, had people laughing, cheering and crying.
‘In this world with so much of the other, so many tragedies, so much darkness – it’s important to surround yourself with people who can remind you of who you really are.
‘And if you don’t have those people you have to learn the processing tools to guide yourself, you have to learn how to navigate this life, but you need support.’
Gay Star News were there to capture the beautiful moment live. Watch the video below.
