For fucks sake. Biden is nominating an anti-Abortion lawyer to become a Federal Judge...because of course he can. The Biden administration is playing pro-choice in the streets and spinless in the sheets when it comes to women's rights and somehow Mitch McConnell is somehow behind all of it. Less than a week after the Supreme Court gave women across America the go fuck yourself finger, with the repeal of Roe vs Wade, Biden is slated to nominate a Republican anti-abortion lawyer to a lifetime appointment as a federal judge in Kentucky in an alleged deal struck with Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell. The prospective nominee, conservative republican lawyer Chad Meredith. This isn't sitting well with some dems or myself, who has never been 100% sold on Biden. And this doesn't help. Would I like to believe that the democrats would add more seats to the house and gain some in the senate in 2024 and do the right thing by women and on so many other issues? Sure. But this is not going to be the way to do it, just as Nancy Pelosi isn't helping by supporting anti-choice and pro- gun candidates. I realize things can't change overnight, but would it hurt to lend support and backing to more progressive candidates? And if Biden thinks that by doing this as a "deal" with McConnell intended to placate McConnell, who will supposedly pledge to not stall further federal nominations by the Biden White House, then he is a bigger fool to trust McConnell.

Amazing picture above courtesy of Preston. Amazing and thank you cutie! This weekend found me in New York City for Pride, after a three-year absence because of the pandemic. The last one for me was the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall, which was a blow out of an epic event. Which was good to tide us over not knowing then that would be the last because of the plaque. And after last week's SCOTUS bombshell, it put me in a right pissy and angry mood. I'm sure my blood pressure was through the roof, and I was seriously coming close to not even attending festivities. But with that abortion decision, I knew deep down now is not the time to forgo a Pride Festival or Parade. We must not let our guard down and make them think these Prides are not worth our time. We may have a battle and I'll be ready to rumble and join a riot if I must and show all politicians we are not to be trifled with. I did promise my clan I would make the Mistress come for a Friday appearance. I also would have felt bad had my man friend Charles went up by himself too. It was a blast!!!!! I have to admit it was the first time I ever did drag in the Village. I could swear I could almost hear Marsha whispering. I'm here to tell ya, the queens were out in full force...packed streets and the best part? Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion groups were bumped to the beginning of the parade and opened it!!!! It was great to see them and the LBGT join forces. A friend of mine also caught the Madonna concert...and said bitch delivered it! Some scenes from the Pride weekend....

It seems the drag queens always get the crowning glory of media coverage and shows of their own. I'm only surprised that much more of the LGBTQ doesn't embrace the Drag King more. I mean, when was the last time you heard someone say, "Oh, we're going to a drag king show tonight."? I also don't personally know many people who could name drag kings like they could drag queens, with exception to Landon Cider and the fabulous and incomparable, mister showbiz himself, Murray Hill. So, this is my list of drag kings to know and start with, and the ones I feel are challenging gender perspectives. And shows of hilarity.
Adam All leans heavily on the "geek chic" influences. A sharp suit in pink or a bowtie in lime green with Ray Ban style glasses to match. The accessories as well as sequins and glitter are essential. Adam can charm and alarm with equal appeal, l but is not the sharpest tool in the box. Adam spent his former life working as a decorator and carpenter on male dominated building sites and his character is developed from observation and combined with his own thoughts on masculinity. Adam likes to perform, even when inappropriate, one can tell he likes to explore gender dynamics. Kingspirations for Adam are Vesta Tilly, Storme De Larverie and Landon Cider.
Sammy identifies as a trans non-binary bear cub. He can flirt in between being non-binary and being a trans man. Gender is fluid and his gender identity he feels is constantly changing everyday. And Sammy's style? He is a stocky, furry bear cub. He'll rock a snapback, floral shirt, jeans and silver shoes. Or sometimes a top hat, a smart jacket and spats. Sammy is sassy, sexy and surreal. He loves dancing and throwing himself all over a stage. If he doesn't leave the stage in a heaping pile of sweat, he feels he hasn't done his job properly. He is a mixed bag. He is a Vlogger, has a You Tube full of sketches, comic rants, and just a few of his own original silly songs.

I think during Pride is a good time to get on the same page and learn to accept all. Inti is one queen who I think doesn't get the coverage they deserve and didn't get a fair shake on their season of competition. But Inti is my kind of queen. She has the over-the-top huge elegance and yet has a new perspective on makeup...not caked on by the pound, and at times, if any... and it's very rare one sees Inti in a wig. Her style is drop dead. Inti is only a 21-year-old, non-binary Bolivian performer, by way of Sevilla, Spain, and landed on Drag Race Espana. Their drag character was born in 2018, when they were inspired by RuPaul's show, and playing with makeup, they created Inti to participate in a show for local drag queens, singers and artist. Inti chooses to feature much of their roots in their drag style, while yet bringing the old school glam and club kid. Inti is just an extension of their personality, a more creative and challenging way of showing off, using their own body and face as a canvas to paint what they feel and think. But Inti identifies as non-binary, and that fooled with them of their season, as they broke down many times where they explained it was due to their body dysphoria as a trans person. Inti says it's hard to accept their look, and their body, and sometimes doesn't see themselves in the mirror. But Inti is working through it. I personally think Inti was way beyond the show. Their style, concepts and vision are far above what the show puts out. Besides... Inti is also a very active member of the Spanish Ballroom Scene where they compete in the runaway category...so I say WERK, WERK IT GURL!!!! WERK IT... OWN IT....Yes Honey, bring all that mug to the runway kitty gurl.
