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."

Ru credits his win to the 100+ drag queens that have competed on the show over the last seven years. "This so special for me because of the 100 plus girls who have so graciously told their stories on our show, who have traveled the world as ambassadors of...dancing to the beat of a different drummer."

A few months prior to the win, RuPaul was quoted as saying that he would rather have "an enema than an Emmy." Well Ru, now you can have both!
