As RuPaul always says “Sashay away,” which means to strut your stuff. Although he tells this to the drag queens that are eliminated from his show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, he is telling them that even though they are leaving his competition that he wants them to continue to ‘strut their stuff’ and continue to do what they love most, Drag. The Drag community is often one that is oppressed by society. A society who wants everyone to be the same boring grey blob of a person rather than the glamourous person they can be. The beauty of the Drag community is that they always wish for you to be who you want, even if that is a man dressed as a woman strutting their stuff on stage.
