It's snowing down here in Hampshire today, and it's snowing pretty heavily, too. I made it into work this morning but was lucky to catch my train home (thank you Lush gods for letting me leave early as a precaution!).

What Drag Race Has Done For My Confidence

RuPaul's Drag Race. It's queer culture. It's your feel good reality show with a high dosage of shaaade. In my last post, I actually referenced a specific moment from the show to coherently express my feelings on a matter, but today I speak of a much more generalised topic surrounding the show; Confidence.
