Anytime anybody does what their dream is or do what’s in their heart, that’s the most political thing you can do. I can’t change the world, but I can change myself & I can influence the world by what I do. So, the most political thing you can do is when you do your own thing, ok? …When you become the image of your own imagination, it’s the most powerful thing you could ever do.
—RuPaul on the Arsenio Hall Show (1993)
