10 Pieces of Excellent Life Advice…from Drag Queens3

Some of my favorite college memories involved going to the local drag show every year and basking in the glow of their fabulosity. It was so fun and powerful to see guys paying homage to what is socially coded as femininity via their hair, makeup, mannerisms and music selections. Those things are often seen as frivolous, shallow and worthless, so people who actively choose to spend their time and money perfecting their performance and personas are pretty hypnotizing to me.

Also, they tend to have vibrant perspectives on life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.

Without further ado, here are 10 insights from Drag Race contestants (and Queen RuPaul herself).
