“Stay True: There’s No Wrong Way” serves as the perfect antidote to the bleak world around, bringing a positive message of self-expression and choice, that if you Stay True to who you are, then there’s no wrong way. No wrong way to dance, to work, to dress, to love, in fact, there’s no wrong way to live your life. And when there’s no wrong way, suddenly every choice you make can be the right one.
