Acceptance as an Ally of the LGBTQI Community

Michelle Visage has forged a successful career as a singer, television host and media personality. Currently featuring as a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Michelle is a passionate LGBT+ ally and promotes the inclusion of all. Now regularly booked as an LGBT speaker, Michelle increases awareness and acceptance of the community, fighting for LGBT+ rights.

Before television fame, Michelle gained popularity as a member of Seduction the dance-pop trio. After launching five singles with the band, Michelle later went on to become the lead singer of The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M. with whom she reached number 34 on the Billboard Hot 100. Michelle has continued to impress with her vocal talents, being featured on several albums by RuPaul and most recently collaborating with Steps, singing a rework of Heartbreak in This City.

Throughout her career, Michelle has worked closely with RuPaul and first appeared on one of his shows in the 1990s. Originally the co-host of The RuPaul Show, Michelle has since appeared as a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. Michelle has also been the co-host of RuPaul: What’s the Tee? and presented Michelle Visage’s Fabulous Divas.

For the past three decades, Michelle has been a passionate member of the LGBT+ community and raises awareness of how to be an LGBT+ ally. Quoting that being an ally is the ‘most important thing’ to her, Michelle is passionate about making the world a better place for her child who identifies as gay and the rest of the LGBT+ community. As an LGBT speaker, Michelle shares the importance of increased acceptance for the LGBT+ community, validating their rights and experiences and changing mainstream media with her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

In November 2023 we sat down virtually with Michelle Visage and discussed her thoughts on gender representation, LGBTQ+ inclusion and what drag means to her. Watch our Exclusive Interview with Michelle Visage.
