It might not be the first time that I put makeup on my skin but it might be the first time that I write about it so that everyone can read.
Being an artist is all about being ourselves and being able to express our truth through our art and body. This third portrait that I’m bringing here today is all about letting yourself be, free of your soul from any barrier and any past trauma, be yourself in the most truthful way possible.
The Art of Being a Drag Queen
When I was graduating from Fashion College, I was also learning a lot about myself and what I am as a human being. Being a Drag Queen for over two years in the past built almost every single part of who I am today.
I learned to understand the differences between every one of us, to respect and to admire every kind of art. This art has taught me to be myself, and not let anyone tell me what I should or shouldn’t be wearing.
As a gay kid, I was always holding myself from being who I really am, to express my feelings and also to be wearing whatever makes me smile. I struggled and it took me a long time to realize that if you’re not being yourself, you’re only showing the world what they want to see and not what you want to be seen.
We all need to celebrate ourselves, celebrate life and its beauty. Being yourself is being unique, out there you can find many people that look the same but every one of us has a unique essence and beautiful soul inside us that no one can steal from us.
