RuPaul has been hailed as the first drag queen to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Emmy-winning performer, 57, said he was “overcome with so much emotion” to get the honour he dreamed of since he was a child as he addressed the crowds on Hollywood Boulevard.“This is absolutely the most important moment in my professional career,” the host of RuPaul’s Drag Race said on Friday as his voice began to quiver. Jane Fonda, whose show Grace And Frankie has featured the drag artist, was there to present the honour.She said getting to know RuPaul has been “one of the big pleasures of my life” and that the honour “should be at least three sizes bigger than any other star”. “He created an industry that has given hundreds and hundreds of jobs and dreams to so many,” the double Oscar-winner said.Vast crowds of fans lined the street to praise RuPaul for boosting the LGBTQ community.
