If you are a RuPaul buff you'll soon be able to add his latest memoir to your book collection.
The Emmy award-winning television personality has announced the release of his memoir, The House of Hidden Meanings, with Dey Street Books.
Over the course of his career, RuPaul has released three books - 1995’s Lettin’ It All Hang Out, as well as 2010’s Workin’ It! and 2018’s GuRu which had more of a mentoring/self-help tone.
However, The House of Hidden Meanings is set to be different and take a much more in-depth look at RuPaul’s life and career,.
The memoir, due March 5, 2024 is set to follow his early hectic childhood and teenage years, his early adult years in the punk and drag scenes of Atlanta and New York, his journey to sobriety and his relationship with now-husband Georges LeBar.
In an emotional video posted to Instagram, he expressed excitement for the book.
“After two and a half years, it’s finally here. My memoir. I’m so excited and so anxious at the same time, because I really reveal so much of myself. You know, this world today feels so hostile and [is] such a scary place to be vulnerable. But I did it. So get ready.”
The official book description from HarperCollins reads:
“From international drag superstar and pop culture icon RuPaul, comes his most revealing and personal work to date – a brutally honest, surprisingly poignant, and deeply intimate memoir of growing up Black, poor, and queer in a broken home to discovering the power of performance, found family, and self-acceptance. A profound introspection of his life, relationships, and identity, The House of Hidden Meanings is a self-portrait of the legendary icon on the road to global fame and changing the way the world thinks about drag.”
