Maren Morris Discusses LGBTQ+ On Ru Paul’s Drag Race: Look + Listen

Fulfilling a “decade-long dream” of serving as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Maren Morris got emotional.

On Friday (1.13,) the country music superstar appeared on the award winning show and later tweeted: “I’ve done some cool s—. #DragRace is rivaling it all. Getting my jacket framed next to my Grammy. It is DONE.”

In a post-episode Untucked clip, Morris was teary-eyed as she spoke emotionally, stating:

“Coming from country music and its relationship with LGBTQ+ members, I just want to say I’m sorry,” “And I love you guys for making me feel like a brave voice in country music. So I just thank you guys so much for inspiring me.” “I’m gonna cry.”

Last summer, Morris expressed her support by calling out the “unapologetically conservative” wife of fellow country artist Jason Aldean, who spread hurtful anti-trans misinformation on her Instagram account. When Aldean’s spouse, Brittany, called gender-affirming care for minors “one of the worst evils,” Morris and Cassadee Pope jumped in with comments, calling Mrs. Aldean “Insurrection Barbie” and telling her to “not be a scumbag human.”

When Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called Morris a “lunatic” for her comments, the female singer created T-shirts that read “lunatic country music person,” and later donated more than $100,000 worth of proceeds to GLAAD’s Transgender Media Program and Trans Lifeline.

In November, Morris spoke out against Candace Cameron Bure for her plans to “keep traditional marriage at the core” of content on her new network, Great American Family. Morris commented “Make DJ Gay Again,” a reference to Bure’s most famous role as Full House‘s DJ Tanner.

On Saturday (1.14), the official Rupaul’s Drag Race Instagram account posted “We love an ally! So grateful @marenmorris stopped by #Untucked to support our Queens with this heartfelt message,”
