RuPaul: ‘I’m Not Hunting for Some Special Designated Restroom’


*The queen of drag has weighed in on the trans/gender bathroom controversy and RuPaul wants you to know that she’s not adjusting her pee game in order to accommodate closed-minded people.

RuPaul chatted with Page Six about the upset and drama surrounding boys with breasts (on in dresses) using the ladies toilets.

“Oh, honey, it’s a new age. Out with the old, in with the new. Old people put up a fight. They won’t change. They’re the last gasp of the 20th century,” says RuPaul.

Born RuPaul Andre Charles, the 56-year-old, 7 feet tall white woman trapped in a black male’s body says: “Please . . . when I’m getting to go into whatever john’s around, I’m not hunting anywhere for some special designated restroom. I’ll take a security guard with me. Honey, you want to watch, go ahead. I’m getting paid . . . so . . . watch.”

“I have offers from clubs for a whole bunch of money. An old gal like myself isn’t turning down any job because of worrying about peeing.” She added: “There’s things I don’t love about today that aren’t even toilets. Like cellphones. They stick them in your face. They make living too damn hard. Why doesn’t someone fight against that and leave our loos alone. Just tell people, ‘Go to whatever can you want.’

Since 2009, Ru has hosted and produced the drag queen reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” for which she won an Emmy in 2016.

“Logo TV reruns my TV perennial ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race.’ I’m a judge on TV’s ‘Skin Wars.’ I don’t know whenthehell it’s on. Don’t ask me, I don’t know. Download it. It’s maybe some iTunes or Hulu thing. And I do Snatch Game [on ‘Drag Race’].”

When asked where she keep her wardrobe: “I don’t want to see them on eBay so I have a pop-up store in Hollywood. In LA, one weekend brought my DragCon 30,000 people. And I sold T-shirts that read ‘Get To Meet the Tribe.’ And nobody worried about toilets.”
