...what my drag name was.

Fannie: The Music and Life of Fannie Lou Hamer: Jan 13-Feb 14 at Bagley Wright Theatre
Part theater, part revival, and all power, this one-woman show will have your head nodding and hands clapping!

For the most part, back when I went out in drag, I went out in drag as myself. The few times I went out to perform as a drag queen at Neighbours (sp?) or the Brass Connection—and not to MC or host something—my drag name was Helvetica Bold... when I had blond hair. When I had black hair my drag name was Futura Bold-Oblique. And while I did drag back in the day, I never earned the right to call myself a drag queen. The amazing and talented Zora, an honest-to-God drag queen, did my makeup for me. She would putty away my eyebrows and tell me what not to wear.

A few weeks ago someone in a comments thread on Slog called me an ugly drag queen. Evidence to the contrary after the jump.




That last picture is me and Kevin Kent and Kirby Genasci backstage at Re-bar during the run of Greek Active's Macbeth. I was filling in for one of the witches and had to do my own makeup. See why I needed Zora? I have a picture of me looking very sharp in a wedding dress somewhere that I'll dig up and post tomorrow.

How long do you think it will take for these pictures turn up on Americans for Truth?
