THE STUFF WE’RE LOVING
“I’ve spent my life creating my own value system… If I tried to fit my worth into what I was taught by society, I’d be worthless,” writes RuPaul in GuRu. “I had to learn what my true value was by forging ahead into the wild frontier. I wanted to be free and I’ve done that.”
Drag Race has taught us this paradox: the more masks we wear, the more we reveal ourselves. RuPaul reveals his inner-philosopher in this beautifully presented small book. Of course, the photography is exceptional but Ru’s life insights lift this beyond a mere celebration of glam and make it a contemplation on life and finding your own path.
Lofty, but hey, RuPaul has the heels for it!
