Though RuPaul has been blazing trails in the LGBTQ+ community for more than three decades, he doesn’t subscribe to some of the societal norms queer people fight for — specifically when it comes to his unconventional marriage.

The 14-time Emmy Award winner, who presides over the mega successful “RuPaul’s Drag Race” TV empire, has been married for over seven years to Wyoming ranch owner Georges LeBar.

The longtime couple, who have been together since meeting at the now-defunct New York City Limelight nightclub in 1994, have an open marriage.

“It’s just realistic,” RuPaul said in a recent interview with The New Yorker. “There’s no such thing as monogamy with men.”

However, the famous drag queen added that due to his fame, there is no longer “a circle of people that I can sort of rely on” for intimacy.

“We are devoted to each other,” RuPaul, 63, previously said about tying the knot in January 2017. “We don’t stand on ceremony. We thought we don’t have to get married. But then, in light of what’s happening currently in the world today, what’s happening in Washington, we thought, you know what? Let’s just do it, because there’s too much at stake with our businesses. So, that’s why we did it.”

“I know him. He knows me. I love him,” the “The House of Hidden Meanings” author told ET. “He’s my favorite person on the planet I’ve met. I’ve met a lot of people.”
