America's first drag queen superstar RuPaul Charles, host of cabler Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race, has applauded Apple CEO Tim Cook's coming out, saying, “Do your thing.”

In a wide-ranging interview with, RuPaul was asked to weigh in on Cook's October announcement, which made him the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

“You work in the entertainment industry, specifically the drag world where sexuality is part and parcel... the fluidity of sexuality. But in the tech industry, that's not so much the case. You're not really dealing with gender identity and sexuality. And it seemed as though Cook was being forced out of the glass closet. Did you find his 'coming out' necessary? Why are we still doing that to people? And does it have an impact, him doing this?” the site's Joseph Volpe asked.

RuPaul answered “gender and sexuality are huge in every aspect” because “it dictates so much of how we behave in our culture.”

“You know, [such as] how people present themselves,” RuPaul said. “We see two people in the newspaper and they're kissing and they just happen to be straight. We just take it for granted that that's just the norm. You know, people talk about equality in our culture, and it's based on a kindergarten primary idea of what fairness and equality is. But it doesn't get updated as we get older.”

“I've always looked at the world as an alien,” RuPaul continued. “And I've always thought it was all so strange. You know, [if] somebody who's straight behaves a certain way, nobody bats an eyelash. But if a gay person does the exact same thing, people are like, 'Oh my god. It's revolutionary!' [But] it's the exact same thing! And the same is true in any business. Gender plays a huge role in how we see people, how we interpret what they say, whether we know it or not. Most people don't know it. So I applaud him. I think, 'Right on!'”
