Vintage RuPaul Prom Photo

by Teresa Lu

Remember when we posted those sweet pics of Madonna from the ‘80s?
Well, this might be even better…

That’s RuPaul, posing at the Northside High School Prom in Atlanta, 1983! (He was born in 1960, so this was probably his date’s prom, not his.)

Swallowtail jacket, leather fingerless gloves, satin pants… and a single feather earring? Fabulous, as usual.
