They're here, they're queer, and they're stomping the Emmys red carpet.

When the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards announced its list of nominees, it featured queer excellence across the board, with a number of non-binary actors nominated as well as Pose's Mj Rodriguez making history as the first transgender lead actress nominated.

These LGBTQ+ stars also dazzled the red carpet with their glamourous fashions—some of them were even gender non-conforming and we are living for it.

Pose star Billy Porter left the children gagging again by rocking an all-black ensemble from Ashi Couture with pleated wings and diamonds to match. Talk about someone who understands the assignment when it comes to red carpet looks.

Non-binary actor Carl Clemons-Hopkins, who was nominated for their role in Hacks, shut down the red carpet with a gag-worthy dress sporting the non-binary flag colors.

Mj Rodriguez didn't take the Emmy but she captured the hearts of many at the Emmys. The trans actress looked opulent in a turquoise Versace gown with Bulgari diamonds totaling 71 carats.

RuPaul made history at the Emmys becoming the most decorated Black artist in the award show's history. The drag icon brought RuPaul's Drag Race season 13 finalist Gottmik and winner Symone with him on the red carpet and on stage when he accepted his 11th award.
