Michelle Lynn Shupack, mostly known under the name Michelle Visage, took part in Celebrity Big Brother in 2015. She is also a musician, a part of R&B band ‘Seduction’. She is now 49 years old and she knows RuPaul for more than 2 decades. “I truly believe my calling is to be here for a community that’s always been there for me,” she says about her LGBT activism. But Michelle herself is straight as an arrow, she is married to a man named David, he is a screenwriter and a father of two her kids. Visage has also faced criticism from some queer people for using the word “we” when referring to the LGBTQ+ community, but to this she responded that she could fight for the rights of animals and she does not have to be an animal, she can protect disabled people having no disability, the same thing is about LGBT.
This year saw her role as a reality-television judge cross the pond to Ireland, where she sat alongside Louis Walsh and Denise Van Outen for Ireland’s Got Talent. Ireland introduced marriage equality in 2015, with Visage calling the nation “a beacon of tolerance for LGBT youth”. She has also been outspoken about the lack of same-sex marriage across the border in the north.
