Jujubee Turns Dream Into Reality, Snaps Heartwarming Photo With Child Fan At Pride

10378983_10152460765615027_3618986345042610495_nRuPaul’s Drag Race alum Jujubee, the fiercely hilarious Boston native that was absolutely robbed during the All Stars season, made one little boy’s dream come true over the weekend at Rhode Island Pride.

In a touching photo shared on her Facebook page, liked almost 20,000 times since it was uploaded on Sunday, Juju is smiling wide while holding a pint-sized gender-creative child fan wearing high heels, a skirt, and several strands of rainbow beads.

“His mother brought him over and I was so happy!”, the caption reads. “I asked ‘Are you my lil princess boy???’ He replied with a huge smile, ‘YES I AM!’ #RhodeIslandPride”.

After the photo was shared, the boy’s mother, Starlie Becote, posted a comment providing more context:

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

Becote, a prime candidate for Mother of the Year, added that her son Jeffrey designs most of his outfits himself:

He is amazing! He actually designs most of his clothes himself (not the skirt he’s wearing in the pic) but he makes clothes for himself and his barbies, he sowes them from fabrics. I see a future in fashion design.

Yaas Jeffrey! You keep serving life and we’ll see you on Drag Race season 16, mama!

      Yup, Jujubee’s also one of my (all-time) faves on “RPDR”. Funny in a classy, cerebral sort of way without ever being crass and mean-spirited.
