Gaydom’s Fairy Dragmother

Michelle Visage has been a pop star, a radio personality, and co-host of The RuPaul Show, but she’s best known for serving no-bull realness as a judge on Logo’s award-winning reality competition “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” “I think what people fear is the character they see on television, because I am strong and I am commanding,” she says. “It’s not fear like, ‘Oh my gosh, she’ll beat me up.’ It’s fear like, ‘I have to face my truths.’ The harsh task of facing those truths—whether you’re a man who sews his own ball gowns, a young gay person searching for acceptance, or simply a person who can’t find self-confidence—is at the crux of Visage’s new book, “The Diva Rules,” in which she promises to help readers “ditch the drama, find your strength, and sparkle your way to the top.” Sparkle, baby, sparkle!
