Condragulations To Freshly Married RuPaul And His Husband!

Just when I was beginning to think that we needed some actual happy news around these dreary parts, RuPaul came through and caused cannons to burp out loads of confetti by announcing that he’s married now!

RuPaul was a guest on Hollywood Today, and hosts Ross Matthews and Ali Landry (aka the Doritos Girl from 1998), brought up his partner of 23 years, Georges LeBar. Ru mostly lives and works in L.A. and Georges The Rancher mostly lives and works in a gigantic ass ranch in Wyoming and isn’t into showbiz shit. But they make it work, and now they’re married! And they got married for a really good reason. I’ve always thought that you should only get a legal ball and chain attached to your ankle for one of two reasons: 1. If you’re a gold digger and your piece is a millionaire who doesn’t want you to sign a prenup. Or 2. TAX REASONS! This is how Ru spilled the news:

Ross: Are you going to get married?

Ru: You know, I don’t think I’ve said… I’ve never said this on television before, we are married.

Ross: When did you get married?

Ru: We got married, actually, on our 23rd… I met him on the dance floor at Limelight in 1994 on his birthday. So we got married on his birthday, the anniversary of when we met, this year. Just in January. We’ve been looking into it for, really, tax breaks and for financial things.

Ru and Georges The Rancher will probably never share pics or videos from the ceremony, so I’ll paint the picture myself. Ru loves Taylor Dayne, so Ru’s vows were her song I’ll Always Love You and he lip-synched them. And Georges The Rancher’s vows were a monologue from Brokeback Mountain (that and Rancho Notorious are the only cowboy movies I really know, okay?). Ornacia was the Best Woman, and the officiant, Michelle Visage, ended with, “I now pronounce you husband and husband, and don’t fuck it up.” That’s obviously how it went down.

    Hah! I love Ru so much, but I had to stop listening to the podcast because he told the same damn stories to multiple guests.

    I doubt they expected or even wanted any change in their beautiful relationship. What changes is how society, particularly the law, now views them with equality and full citizenship, and tough toenails to anyone with a problem with that. A well known politician and marriage expert, in 2008, primly tsk-tsked: “I believe marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman.” Well, like I said… tough. Too bad.

    This post brought to you by Squarespace. Squarespace. Anyway good for him. Financial reasons is why I WON’T marry the BF of 18 years. And I prefer living in sin, thank you. CHOICES.

    Congrats to them but really after 23 years together, I would think it probably isn’t going to change their lives much. They seem very happy and that’s all that matters.

    Truth! My downstairs neighbors have been together 33 years and the elder partner is having serious health issues and the lack of POA and the fact that they haven’t married (old fashioned Catholic) is rearing its ugly head. I’m trying to help them through the legal steps now, but it’s much easier when you’re healthy and physically able to do so.

    Did he steal that guy from that Mary-Kate Olsen?

    I don’t watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, since it’s probably on one of those cable channels, but every time I’ve seen him interviewed he seems like the nicest guy. And he makes up fucking gorgeous. And I am all for people getting married for tax purposes, so congratulations to the crazy kids!

  19. Just the facts

    I love seeing your comments back on the D (I’m a relative newbie, but I just had to say this.) πŸ’“

  20. Just the facts

    Hugs and kisses to RuPaul and George! I cry at weddings, so I’m kinda verklempt right now. RuPaul is so awesome, and here we are: he and his long term love are wed! πŸ€“πŸ’•πŸ’“πŸΎπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‡πŸŽ†

    Fave character from that show, by far. I’d watch a show all about Lafayette

  22. QueenOfFarts

    Awwwww, congrats Ru and George! <3 <3 <3

  23. Ru is a sweetheart, very happy for him!

  24. Totally understand. And, I partially grew up in small town PA and big town NYC. My escape was music…

  25. Oh gosh, I was so lost and clueless. It was quite hard to be a gay teen in the 80s. Especially alone in a very big city.
