The 2024 primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in television Monday night in Los Angeles, and several stars couldn’t resist getting political in their acceptance speeches.

Drag queen RuPaul won the Emmy award for Best Reality Competition Program and used the acceptance speech to celebrate drag queen story hours.

“If a drag queen wants to read you a story at a library, listen to her because knowledge is power, and if someone tries to restrict your access to power, they are trying to scare you. So listen to a drag queen!” RuPaul said to the crowd.
