Charlize Theron doubles down on support for the drag community

Award-winning actress and activist Charlize Theron stopped by the Werkroom on the latest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. 

During her time with the queens, Theron shared some uplifting words for the contestants amid a tumultuous time for the drag community. 

“I just wanted to say, given the climate in our country right now, there is a lot of energy being put toward your community not existing,” Theron told the competitors.  

“I truly believe that all of that is coming from a place of fear.

“The beauty of who you guys are, what your community brings to all of us, and the truth of who you are and represent will come out."



The Atomic Bomb actress returned on screen during the episode Untucked portion where she shared her hopes for the future of the community. 

“I have two small children, and I want them to grow up in a world where they know what it means to accept what’s not you, what is different and love that, to not be scared of that, and to embrace it, and that’s my job as a mom,” she said.

“I feel like we’re living in a day and age where our words can so easily be weaponized against us. 

In May, Theron made an appearance on the Drag Isn’t Dangerous telethon, which helped raise nearly $500,000 for various LGBTQ+ organizations.

 It was there that she infamously vowed to “f**k up” anyone who goes after drag queens. 

“In all seriousness, there [are] so many things that are hurting and really killing our kids, and we all know what I’m talking about right now, and it ain’t no drag queen,” Theron said.

“If you’ve ever seen a drag queen lip sync for her life, it only makes you happier.”
