HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES -- RuPaul's newly installed star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was unveiled Friday amid cheers from fellow celebrities and a throng of fans.
The iconic drag queen has spent 35 years bringing drag to a mainstream audience. For the last several years, he has produced and hosted the reality competition series "RuPaul's Drag Race."
