Quote by Eric Dorsa


Life for someone like Eric Dorsa can look pretty fabulous. He’s one of Chicago's hottest drag queens, his TED talk has been viewed over 240,000 times, and he has a host of people who love and support him daily.

Yet, getting to this place proved far from easy. Along the way he had to grapple with a life-threatening eating disorder, drug and alcohol abuse, and an underlying self-hatred that continually thwarted the life he longed to live.
