RuPaul Charles defended drag queen story hours during his Emmy Award acceptance speech on Monday evening.

Charles’ show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” has won for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program eight times in a row.

“Listen, if a drag queen wants to read you a story at a library, listen to her,” Charles said as he accepted the award.

“Knowledge is power,” he continued, “and if someone tries to restrict your access to power, they are trying to scare you.”

The 63-year-old drag queen added, “So listen to a drag queen!”

One of the drag queens accompanying Charles on the stage, “Princess Poppy,” was dressed like a goblin.

Many social media users were quick to point out the irony of telling people not to be creeped out by drag queens “while Princess Poppy takes the Emmys stage as a literal hell goblin.”

Ru Paul’s Drag Race is widely credited with popularizing drag queens and inserting them into mainstream culture.
