At the NYC Premiere and Press party, I had the great pleasure of speaking with The Huffington Post's James Michael Nichols about the impact we drag has in today's hostile political climate. James Michael thoughtfully pieced our responses together and I am so thankful for the strong queer voices of my sisters.
I responded, “I think that drag always pushes against the limits of what’s considered beautiful and valuable. And now more than ever we’re called upon to redefine that because the kind of ‘official statement’ does not include all of us in our community. And I think drag is an amazing platform to do all of that — to push for inclusivity, peace and diversity, but through sequins and beauty and glamour and pettiness and all of the things that America loves!”
