A ‘b’nei mitzvah’ was held for this non-binary teenager
Popping back in for the first time in who knows how long to confirm it's me!! Thank you all so much, I'm so proud to have been part of that performance!
Rupaul of all fucking people
RuPaul doubles down on transphobic comments, likens transitioning to “performance-enhancing drugs”
Yeah, he’s been called out for transphobia a bunch over the years.
there's unfortunately seems to be a lot of transphobia and misogyny in the drag world, well I mean it's everywhere but you would think they'd be more in tune to the fluidity of gender
I know there are some like Courtney Act that are gender fluid too
Courtney is one of the most important figures in entertainment today. Love her.
yeah not an apology
The misogyny that seems to be inherent to drag honestly puts me off and I end up feeling like A Bad Gay for not being interested in drag at all. Too many times, it’s not about playing a character who happens to be a woman, but portraying a caricature of what a woman is. There are definitely feminist drag queens out there, I don’t wanna paint everyone with a broad brush, but as someone who has literally spent my entire life trying to carve out a spot within womanhood as someone who doesn’t fit the stereotypes...yeah, drag will never be for me.
when I was a kid in the mid-90s rupaul was one of the few gay icons out there. before even Ellen. I did a drag thing once in college with my now ex-wife but looking back it was pretty transphobic in and of itself. idk if i even knew trans guys existed in 2004 though, maybe that would have made a difference? idk i have mixed feelings about drag but IMO a key part to drag is the over-the-top personalities that shine through so i don't see what difference it'd make if the person was trans or cis
I feel dumb asking this but I want to get a good answer and I trust this community.
The Twins are doing a Pride Night this year and I want to show support but would I be appropriating anything going as a straight cis male?
unless it says that the event is for lgbt+ people only, then go ahead
I guess this goes here
