Fiercely You

Be Fabulous and Confident by Thinking Like a Drag Queen

Jackie Huba (Author) | Shelly Kronbergs (Author)

Publication date: 07/18/2016

Fiercely You
We all want to be fabulous. But too often we let fear and self-doubt derail us from pursuing our passions and accomplishing our biggest goals. This was the situation Jackie Huba found herself in. At the lowest point in her life she serendipitously stumbled upon the wonderful world of drag queens, and to her surprise, she found it inspiring and energizing. Drag queens, she found, were supremely confident, utterly fearless, strong, powerful, and unabashedly and completely themselves— no apologies, no compromises. So she immersed herself in the world of drag, eventually becoming a female drag queen herself: Lady Trinity.
Fiercely You is a creative, playful approach to the serious problems that women face regarding confidence and risk taking. Drawing on her own experiences and interviews with the world's top drag queens, Huba offers five Keys to Fierce that will help readers find the courage to ignore criticism and live the life they truly want to live every day—no wigs or stilettoes required. Huba warmly invites readers to join a community of women who support and empower each other while learning about boldness and bravery from the best in the business.

This is not a guide to drag; it's a guide to life—but in a sense, all life is drag. As RuPaul, the most famous drag queen in the world, says, “We're born naked, and the rest is drag.” Huba and her coauthor, Shelly Stewart Kronbergs—who explains the psychological research that supports each of Huba's keys—help readers bring to life the amazing person they see inside their heads and feel in their hearts.
