Jujubee Makes The Day For 'Lil Princess Boy' At Rhode Island PrideFest

Posted: Updated:

Get ready: nothing we've read this week has made us quite as proud to be queers as this.

When "RuPaul's Drag Race" season two alum JuJubee took part in Rhode Island's annual PrideFest over the weekend, the drag icon more than made the day of one little boy wearing an adorable skirt.

Starlie Becote asked the star for a photo with her son, Jeffrey, who she later noted on Facebook "had been bullied for years." JuJubee posted the photo with the caption, "His mother brought him over and I was so happy! I asked 'Are you my lil princess boy???' He replied with a huge smile, 'YES I AM!' #RhodeIslandPride"

Becote later commented on the picture and melted all of our cold, black hearts by telling the world how much this moment meant to her son.

That's my baby Jeffrey. Thank you all for making his day brighter yesterday. He's never met anyone else like himself and has been bullied for years. I am so proud of him for meeting such a cruel world with the biggest smile everyday. And JuJu he says he's never washing that skirt and shirt because you held him in it. You have no idea what a difference you have made in his life!! Luv ya

Now this is really what Pride is all about.
