Top story: “When I was growing up, that’s when [RuPaul’s] Drag Race started. So VH1 was on and my grandma called me into the room and told me, ‘Sit down and watch, this is what you’re going to be.’”
The #drag queens of #Austin share their origin stories and reflect on the rising political attacks and white supremacist threats to their art: https://www.texasobserver.org/austin-drag-queens-defy-ban/
Yes, Dorothy, there really ARE #liberal #elites who do as they please, no matter the cost to ordinary people. But they ain’t #unions, #students, #teachers, #trans, #dragqueens, or #humanities professors. They’re #lawyers, #investors, #technocrats and #bros.
Sorry for the paid link. Basically an article on how the elite parents of #SBF enabled the massive #FTX #crypto #fraud and enriched themselves in the process. https://apple.news/Aj-Ug6ORwRouByA4MAW9Irw
I am so excited to finally share my @TexasObserver feature on the #Drag Queens of Austin and how they're defying the threat of legal crackdown and persecution in the streets, from the magazine. I spent months putting this together and I am so proud of how it came out... https://www.texasobserver.org/austin-drag-queens-defy-ban/
Hermajestie the Hung told us, “I was given spaces to explore the real me, not the me that I had to be in order to stay alive. #Drag is so healing.”

Based on that success, I revisited Optimus Prime as a drag queen, but with a more verbose prompt.

When I tried Optimus Prime as a drag queen, Midjourney generated images of a human with some clothing inspired by Optimus Prime, including one that is mildly NSFW.

Pues nada, coronaron a una #barbie sosa que todo el rato iba por dios, su familia y su patria... (valores, que ... bueno ... gracias pero NO !)
Me quedo muy pero muy decepcionado con el resultado de este primer #DragRace en #México
Sin embargo, el programa ha sido muy bueno, me encanto, se han visto muchas #estrellas, mucho talento. El werkroom y el escenario estaban increíbles, súper bonitos.
Yo hubiese coronado sin duda a #Matraka, o por a caso a #GalaVaro.

Moet ik nog zeggen dat #dragqueens dat helemaal niet doen? 😡
The new issue will be arriving in mailboxes, inboxes, and at select newsstands soon.
From the Archives: "It’s a safe space to be yourself regardless of who that is. I don’t understand why people want to smother that."
West #Texas Town Comes Out for #Drag Queens
— That's a pretty low bar...
Sad to have to say it but #homophobia seems to be on the rise. We need to keep challenging and calling out this behaviour. These bigots needs to be made feed shame, not us.
Pixie Polite, a star on the UK Drag race was subjected to homophobic slurs and threats. Unfortunately Pixie was all alone and clearly intimidated by the situation
A Ru girl #drag show at the legendary #Numbers nightclub? 👀
Oh and #TimPool needs to get a reality grip. Seriously blaming #DragQueens on a hurricane? It was dumb when insane right wingers blamed the gays on a drought a few years ago , it was dumb when Pat Robertson blamed the cause of Covid with gay marriage. This is as equally dumb.
“We do what we can with the courts but the true power is always in our community and the way we take care of each other. We’re going to need to save each other, and ourselves.”

I went to Drag Expo Gala last night and had a fantabulous evening being entertained by some amazing performers. Drag Expo is on all weekend at MCEC (Jeffs Shed) here in Melbourne. A fantastic time is ensured!
Contrary to the wishes of #conservative #extremists, the constitutionaright to #assemble does not solely extend to #Nazis, #conspiracytheorists, or #firearm enthusiasts discussing how best to legally hide their weapons in a public library.
We’ve only got more population than both #Austin and #Dallas *combined* and a *raging* #drag scene that recently fielded both #RuPaulsDragRace S15 finalist #MistressIsabelleBrooks and currently-airing #CampWannakiki S5 contestant #MuffyBlakeVanderbiltIII.
Whatevs. Sick of this city being passed over while lesser #Texas towns get “national” tour dates.
I believe it is important that you all know that the first session of the drag queens-do-role playing games thing from the other week is up on YouTube for your enjoyment courtesy the channel itself. Two hours of #Jujubee, #BobTheDragQueen, #MonetXChange and #AlaskaThunderfuck doing this? Bring it on! #gaming #dragrace #dragqueens https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZhCgp-GRQ8
You know the United States is on a dystopian moral decline when the Philippines has stronger human rights protections than America.

"In the absence of national anti-discrimination laws, Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte is using local policies to create ‘the safest space’ for gay and transgender people in the Philippines."
Queens et Noires: comment les clichés racistes s’infiltrent jusque sur les scènes du drag
Alors que l’émission «Drag Race France» redémarre vendredi soir sur France TV, avec deux artistes noires au casting de sa saison 2, plusieurs #dragqueens racontent à Mediapart le #racisme auquel elles sont confrontées. Non seulement de la part du public, mais aussi, plus insidieusement, dans leur milieu professionnel.
#Chicago-based #dragqueen #CocoShoNell, who was on season four of #Out #TV’s “#CampWannakiki,” read a variety of #books speaking on the need for #selfacceptance and preserving #LGBTQ+ #history — all while dressed as #MsFrizzle from “#TheMagicSchoolBus.”
Make no mistake. Homophobic GOP politicians and their self-loathing supporters have finally brought their division and anarchy to our streets in manufactured protest. Vote them out. Vote them all out.

Viola, the Brit, was doing well up till now but really flubbed this one. I think it's a Kiss song? "Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time." Rock n roll. She misses the lower notes consistently, and Michelle Visage says she prefers the original outfit from when Viola was 16. Ouch.
Jazell Royale (Black American): holy mackerel, she does "Save the Best for Last" in front of Vanessa Williams. Jazell is a crooner, with a beautiful upper range. Vanessa gives her a standing ovation but Mel B tells the truth: a bit wobbly in one place. A bit nasally in others. Still, it's a fabulous performance overall, and her tribute to Vanessa Williams' influence is sweet and touching. She looks and sounds amazing, she's also a frontrunner imo.
Aura Eternal: I enjoyed her on Drag Race Italia. And she does Mary J. Blige, whatsit, the dancerie song, and wow. She kinda nails it, including Mary's distinctive dance moves! She gets a bit off beat and off pitch for like 0.75 second going into the showoff part of the song but recovers gracefully. She has a gorgeous husky alto and a great sense of humor. And a positive demeanor, I like her.
Queens of the Universe S2 E4
"My First Time": The remaining seven contestants must perform a song that recalls their first time in drag.
Maxie, from the Philippines. She has a pic of herself at age 11 and she sings "What a Feeling." She looks fantastic and her singing is precise and heartfelt. She's seeming like a frontrunner.
Queen Of the Universe update:
On the second episode, to decide who to eliminate, with Mel B judging: they gave the five queens with the lowest audience scores 5 minutes to dress for and rehearse the Spice Girls' "Wannabe." It was glorious and hilarious. They all did remarkably well given the short time frame. Such talent!
Today's first short: You won't believe what we paid for a 2 hour Emergency Room Visit (I hate the United States so much)
the #medical bill finally came from Aeden's two-hour #EmergencyRoom #hospital visit in April... insurance paid $800, leaving us with $600 left to pay. this is WITH my husband's employer subsidized #healthinsurance that he pays hundreds of dollars out of each paycheck for. thankfully with the social security my dad gets while living with us, we can cover it without having to take out a loan, but this makes me SO FURIOUS. we were there for TWO HOURS, all they did was check Aeden's vitals, then give him a dose of ibuprofen after determining he had another ear infection. TWO. FUCKING. HOURS. every year, thousands of #Americans become destitute, thanks to crippling #medicalDebt, or they DIE because #prescriptionDrugs they NEED are too expensive. meanwhile, in CIVILIZED countries , you can be in the hospital for days, even weeks, getting all sorts of medical treatment, and pay only a couple hundred, if anything at all.
and this is to say nothing of the many OTHER things wrong with this country, like the rampant #gunViolence that still #Republicans refuse to pass the slightest amount of #gunControl to mitigate, the demonization of #mentalIllness yet refusal to fund affordable access to treatment for #mentalHealthcare, the rising tides of #whiteNationalism perpetrating #hatecrimes against anyone who isn't a straight white "" christian"" male, the rampant #climateChange #conspiracyTheorist deniers, the assault on #dragQueens, #trans rights, and all other #lgbtq #queer people just for existing, the stripping of #bodilyAutonomy from people who can bear children, relegating us all to #forcedBirth broodmares, and so much else...
the #UnitedStates is a sh-hole. I need to get my family out of this third world dystopian hellscape. am option that the majority of people stuck here can't even begin to consider (nor should they have to)
Damit Konservative den real existierenden Missbrauch weiter verharmlosen und vertuschen können, werden dann lautstark Hetzkampagnen über die eingebildeten Gefahren von #Dragqueens und #Transgender gemacht.
Tatsächlich geht es diesen Leuten nie um Opferschutz, sondern nur um gezielte Ablenkung, um die echten Täter zu schützen.
2 Das macht mich so sauer! Diese ganzen rechten und libertären Clowns fürchten sich vor ein paar #dragqueens, die Kindern, die möglicherweise cis sind, ein paar Bücher vorlesen. Was ihre Hetze an Gewalt und Verfolgung unter queeren Kindern und Jugendlichen produziert ist ihnen völlig egal.
Ach ja, eine Sache noch. An Jeden Kackvogel der jetzt fragt "Warum braucht ihr denn den #pridemonth?" möchte ich folgende Worte richten: F*ck off!
The #sentence was imposed on Bunting after she #admitted #violating an #CourtOrder to immediately take down a #video on #socialmedia about #Actor #MatthewCavan.“This was not an #unintentional breach or #mistake it was a deliberate #breach of a #courtorder.”
So yeah since nobody seems to know, #QueenOfTheUniverse is a drag singing competition. Season 2 is upon us and the first episode is free on yootube. They've got queens from around the world, Graham Norton as host, and a "pop diva" panel: Mel B, Vanessa Williams, Trixie Mattel, and Michelle Visage.
All right, Fediverse. Help a writer out, would you?
In my next book ( #DragQueens vs serial killers), I've got a group of drag artists who go around local retirement communities, libraries, community centres, etc. putting on shows for the community. They're mostly older performers and their audience is mostly retired people. I need a name for the group.
I'm thinking something that plays with the notion of royalty and vintage.

My hive-kicking streak wants to take my cishet self to my friendly neighborhood #DragQueens and get a makeover. I want to create a character and start reading books to kids and/or hosting brunch as a way over the top lady. Honestly I think it would be fun as hell.
(This is unlikely since I live in a city that just named a street after a drag queen. But I have the privilege of loving the idea my indoor plumbing would turn the whole thing into embarrassing spectacle.)
Toth's bill allows everyday people to sue anybody who hosts or performs in drag where any child is in attendance. Critics say the measure will create a bounty-hunting culture that targets drag queens and #transgender people.
Does anyone else need some good news today?
“Hundreds Gather in Royal Oak to Support Drag Queen Story Time”

I dont even know what to say. Or do. They care nothing for rights. Protests fall on deaf ears. They have no shame or compassion. Hypocrisy is embraced. We are the ones chastised for bringing it up.
Tennesse is the first but Texas and Florida and others are right on their heels.
@StillIRise1963 To Those Finding Comfort in the False Assurance You'll Be Okay:
This crowd will find a reason to come after you. (They don't even like one another.)
Today, it's trans folk and drag queens; tomorrow, another group will be in their sights. Eventually, it will be your turn.
It's not for nothing Martin Niemöller's *First, They Came* poem still rings true after all these years.
My story today is infuriating. It’s about Proud Boys in very liberal Silver Springs, Maryland showing up at a bookstore last Saturday to stop families from entering to hear a drag queen read stories to children.
But that’s not the most infuriating part.
#LGBTQ #DragQueens #PoliceBrutality #ProudBoys
A nova linha de ataque de estados conservadores nos EUA passa pelo drag. Aquela que é possivelmente a forma artística mais transgressora da comunidade, que deu o corpo às balas desde o início e permitiu a emancipação moderna LGBTIQ. Há que defender estas rainhas 👑
