Category is: House of Representative realness! And who could more fitting to take on that main challenge than House of Representatives Minority Leader and LGBT activist Nancy Pelosi herself. 

The All-Stars season three competitors will come face to face with Rep. Pelosi on this week’s episode of the reality show.

Host RuPaul leads the political icon down the staircase and into the Werk Room of contestants in the show’s opening minutes.

“When I got the invitation to visit the Werk Room, I couldn’t resist,” Pelosi tells the girls. “I’m honored to be here. You’re an inspiration, I hope you know, because you really know your power. It’s about taking pride, and that’s what you do: Take pride in yourselves and you know your power.”

Rep. Pelosi has been at the forefront of LGBT rights, voting down every bit of conservative legislation that would define marriage as between one man and one woman.

“Voting is everything," she says on the show. "People sacrifice so much in our country for people to have the right to vote. It’s a blessing. But, we have to use it. If you don’t vote, you don’t count, and you count.”
