RuPaul won the Emmy for 'Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program' for hosting his show RuPaul's Drag Race, beating out a bunch of nobodies like Ryan Seacrest (American Idol), Steve Harvey (Family Feud), and Heidi Klum (Project Runway). After the win, the LGBT icon took to Twitter.

Well said.

RuPaul's Drag Race is a fringe competition show for drag queens that premiered in 2009 on Logo and was just renewed for its nineth season. RuPaul dedicated the award to "young people around the world, who see our show in Italy or South Africa, Australia or Japan, who know now that there's a way to navigate this life successfully on your own terms."
