THE STUFF WE’RE LOV­ING

DNA Magazine - - CONTENT #227 -

“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!
