RuPaul Quotes

6. Look at me - a big old black man under all of this makeup, and if I can look beautiful, so can you.

7. Whatever you proclaim as your identity here in the material realm is also your drag. You are not your religion. You are not your skin color. You are not your gender, your politics, your career, or your marital status. You are none of the superficial things that this world deems important. The real you is the energy force that created the entire universe!

8. When you become the image of your own imagination, it's the most powerful thing you could ever do.

In truth, there is unlimited pie for everyone!

14. Be very careful of what you allow to infiltrate your consciousness and subconsciousness. When you watch too much television, you'll start to feel inferior from all the commercials hard selling the idea that you're not complete unless you buy their product…The ad agencies appeal to your fear of not being wanted or loved. It's the same with the local news. They get you to stay tuned with a constant stream of fear tactics…It's as if our culture is addicted to fear and the flat screen is our drug dealer. Don't allow that crap into your head!

15. Walking with your chest out and your head held high says you have earned the right to stomp and pummel this particular piece of real estate.

31. I've dedicated my career to fighting the mundane. My hope is that my career will be a shining example to children everywhere that life is more meaningful when you are not afraid to see all colors of the rainbow.
