Be Fabulous and Confident by Thinking Like A Drag QueenBook - 2016
We all want to be fabulous. But too often we let fear and self-doubt derail us from pursuing our passions and accomplishing our biggest goals. This was the situation Jackie Huba found herself in. At the lowest point in her life she serendipitously stumbled upon the wonderful world of drag queens, and to her surprise, she found them inspiring and energizing. They were supremely confident, utterly fearless, strong, powerful, and unabashedly and completely themselves--no apologies, no compromises. So she immersed herself in the world of drag, eventually becoming a female drag queen herself, aka Lady Trinity. Fiercely You is a creative, playful approach to the serious problems that women face regarding confidence and risk-taking. Drawing on her own experiences and interviews with the world's top drag queens, Huba offers five Keys to the Queendom that will help readers ignore criticism and live life more fearlessly. This is not a guide to drag, it's a guide to life--but in a sense, all life is drag. As RuPaul, the most famous drag queen in the world, herself says, "We're born naked, and the rest is drag." Huba and her coauthor Shelly Stewart Kronbergs--who explains the psychological research that supports each of Huba's keys--help readers become the amazing person they see inside their heads and feel in their hearts.
