REVIEW GuRu By RuPaul î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB RuPaul ✓ 6 REVIEW It This uniue perspective has allowed RuPaul to break the shackles of self imposed limitations but reader beware this is a daily practice that reuires diligence and touchstones to keep you walking in the sunshine of the spirit Once you’re willing to look beyond the identity that was given to you a hidden world of possibilities will open its doorsThroughout the history of humans on this planet there’ve always been shaman seers and mediums who are able to interpret both high and low freuencies and remind humans to look beyond the surface. RuPaul is very savvy in this book which at first glimpse might appear a slim and rather incoherent ragtag mix of Oprah style me ness and best of pics there is a wonderfully candid head shot of Mama Ru towards the end sans make up But as she says so much of drag is about illusion and perceptionThe gay discourse at the moment centres a lot on gender identity with issues such as trans rights and new categories such as cis and non binary I write this review in the shadow of the IAAF s decision that South Africa s Caster Semenya is welcome to enter men s events inflaming the whole intersex debate So there is a lot of difficult emotive and highly politically charged stuff going on at the momentAnd there RuPaul goes and publishes a seemingly vapid book like GuRu that goes against the grain of all this current serious soul searching about identity and gender There is even a foreword by Jane Fonda who mentions that her iconic Barbarella look inspired Mama Ru Even mentioning Barbarella must be like a depth charge in the prevailing discourseI think drag itself finds itself embattled and probably a bit battered at the moment With all the talk about being gay not a choice but a genetic determinant is the choice of drag even relevant in this larger debate Drag has always had a troubled relationship with transvestism anywayBut here is where Mama Ru is so savvy with this book At one point she says Drag for me has always been my superhero costume This echoes an earlier comment where she reflects that Clark Kent changing into Superman is the very essence of the power of dragWhat a clever move to locate the discussion about drag s transformative power in the testosterone fuelled realm of superheroes where only recently have we had a woman break through the glass ceiling Wonder Woman and any broader representation of other cultures and races Black PantherMama Ru is careful to position herself in a longer lineage or perhaps one should say overarching milieu of drag as activism My first deliberately drag look was called gender f%k I was part of the Atlanta bohemianpunk rock scene We wore combat boots torn dresses and smeared lipstick All while flipping the bird We also learn that Mama Ru was a go go dancer at the Pyramid Club in New York to make ends meet as it were which is an image I am still trying to get out of my headI was jazzed to learn that Mama Ru is such a fan of punk rock and David Bowie of course which places her firmly in my generation It is not for nothing that she comments There s a reason I ve been the top bitch in the game for than twenty five years Giving some insight into what drives her as an entertainer with an agenda Mama Ru says My drag is less about looking like a woman and about saying FU to the cult of systematic masculinity I was bombarded with as a little boy And then later on As drag ueens it s our job to mock the hypocrisy mediocrity and absurdity of society I had to wrap my head around Mama Ru s constant refrain in this book that drag is not about assuming an identity and gender different to your own but freeing up yourself to the innate possibility of being different This means giving up the primary role of the ego in our personalities It is a possibility that many of us gay people are uncomfortable to contemplate let alone embrace especially older gays from my generation where assimilation and being normal were critical simply to survive I ve been shunned by whites for being black by blacks for being gay and by gays for being fem Mama Ru tells us neatly highlighting the ongoing problem of pigeonholing and how corrosive such stereotypes tend to be The fact that such stereotypes continue to be perpetuated by the very oppressed communities fighting for their freedom of expression and dignity is troublesome indeedOf course it is a much larger societal issue where gay activists continually point out that the right to gay marriage represents nothing but propping up one of the defining pillars of heteronormativity and patriarchy If drag surely teaches us one thing at least it is the power of the Trojan Horse and how change can be brought about by embracing something to undermine it Which is exactly what drag does about gender stereotypesWhile there is a lot of food for thought in this generous book what shines through ultimately is Mama Ru s generosity of spirit and genuine love for the tribe of otherness her centredness as a spiritual being who has had a lot of personal demons to wrestle with and her sense of fun and delight in all that is uirky and pokes a big rainbow stick in the face of the establishmentWhat I also loved is how candidly Mama Ru writes about growing older and how looking after yourself when you are still young and flexible is like an insurance policy for when you grow older Everyone knows about the diminishments of growing older but no one talks about the expanding strengths Paired with intellect your intuition grows increasingly stronger and on point In the immortal words of Mama Ru BITCHES BETTER BEWARE Destiny uniue perspective has allowed RuPaul to break the shackles of self imposed limitations but reader beware this is a daily practice that

REVIEW GuRu By RuPaul î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB RuPaul ✓ 6 REVIEW For the truth of who we really are And who we really are is an extension of the power that created the universe aka God in drag FYI most people are not willing to hear or accept thatThat is RuPaul’s secret for success not only in show business but in all aspects of life especially in navigating the emotional landmines that inhibit most sweet sensitive soulsIf you think this book is just about doing drag you are sorely mistaken because for RuPaul drag is merely a device to deactivate the identity based ego and allow space for the unlimit.
