"RuPaul's Drag Race" is making it a marathon. And a rout.

The VH1 show won the Emmy for top reality-competition show for the fourth straight year on Sunday night.

From the stage, RuPaul reached out to young gender non-conforming viewers:

"Thank you so much to the Academy and all of you gorgeous people here tonight," said RuPaul. "All the people at World of Wonder, our friends at Viacom/CBS. But really thanks to all of our lovely children on our show from around the world. They are so gracious to tell their stories of courage and how to navigate this difficult life. Even more difficult today. This is for you and, for you kids out there watching, uh, you have a tribe that is waiting for you. We are waiting for you, baby. Come on to Mama Ru! Thank you so much. Thank you so much."
