If you’ve sanded down your edges to fit in, it’s time to bring them back — there’s power, value and beauty there, says Crystal Rasmussen. With candor and humility, Rasmussen shares their experience navigating shame, how it manifests in ourselves and the world and the ways drag revealed a path toward self-love and acceptance. A talk for anyone struggling with becoming exactly who they’re meant to be — and a reminder that it’s rarely easy but always worth it.
