Taking us on his journey to stand up for who he is, virgin author, Jay Claypool shares his life and story about growing up on a rural farm in Georgia and keeping his life as a gay man and drag performer hidden through the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" years. Learn how...
  • His strong conviction to himself kept him going
  • Authenticity has helped him know who he is as a human
  • Uncover his motto of giving people their human rights
