Lettin It All Hang Out
An Autobiography

by RuPaul Charles, 1995.

Hardcover format, 227 pages.
Exceedingly rare.

In Lettin It All Hang Out, part autobiography, part how-to manual, superstar RuPaul comes out and comes clean with the full story of his remarkable rise and rise. Born to a mother who was a "hot firecracker of a woman," RuPaul Andre Charles talks about her powerful influence and of his life growing up in a house full of women. He tells the story of his difficult but loving childhood, his early awareness of "being different," and takes us on a wild ride highlighting his various drag personae over the years in Atlanta, New York City, and eventually all over the world.
RuPaul also reveals his secrets as the apotheosis of the nineties' glamour girl: how to work a wig, how to get sparkling white teeth, how to work the camera and how to get the camera to work for you, the essential items every drag queen must have in her purse, and how to achieve the fiercest tuck this side of the Mason-Dixon line. RuPaul also lets us behind his persona to show his fans that there is more to him than the paint and the powder. He shows how he overcame setbacks and turned adversity into triumph. His enlightened message is one of self-love: "If you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?"
