Replete with beautiful illustrations by Libby Vanderploeg, the book is a biography and bible in one — filled with wisdom and inside dirt on key queens of Drag Race fame. The tome overflows with Ru quotes reminiscent of the show’s signature sign-off: “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”
