My drag has been at its best and Iโ€™m the happiest Iโ€™ve been in a long while since I got to Bostonโ€”and Iโ€™m quite eloquent, too, haha. Alas, I havenโ€™t been documenting things properly. ๐Ÿ’– I am so grateful to my friends and family here: S/O to @kandidishe, @heartharley, @pickyourpoise, @violenciaexclamationpoint , @shampayne8, @dragqueenjp & @queenkirlia in particular!

I did a practice beat last night, coz I wanted to work on symmetry, gradient and precisionโ€”so I can be one step closer to that Elizabeth James blend. ๐Ÿ’„ Love you and miss you, @andthenblake! . Backdrop from @columnightbus. This is the first time in forever Iโ€™ve had my space clear enough to show off the gorgeous Celtic (?) tapestry. . Also, I swear by #micellarwater for #makeupremoval, and Iโ€™ve started buying in bulk.

For my 5th anniversary in drag, I decided to take on a special challenge for myself: to do my makeup on stage, taking inspiration from queer icon @officialannielennox and drag legend @cassdenaโ€”and I had to do it at ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธโž• with my family. . Due to physical limitations of my own body and the space, I restricted the performance to solely doing eye makeup. ๐Ÿ‘โœจ๐Ÿ‘ Iโ€™m pretty happy with the outcome and audience reception, despite a brush breaking in the middle of the performance. Iโ€™d bought the dress online back in early 2016, and Iโ€™ve been upgrading it with rhinestones and ostrich feathers over the past 6 months. And I made the headpiece the night before. . Thank you all for joining me on this journey! ๐Ÿ’– It is truly special being able to play dress up, act out, surround myself with chosen family, make new friends and earn some money. . ๐Ÿ“ธ: @agentwednesday . โœ–๏ธโญ•๏ธโœ–๏ธโญ•๏ธ

Today is #nationalcomingoutday ๐ŸŒˆ and I almost forgot to share. Hereโ€™s a FB post I made last year ... . โ›”๏ธ Do NOT come out until YOU are confortable with your own queerness! โ›”๏ธ . Let me elaborate ... Being queerโ€”in all senses of the wordโ€”means being different from the โ€œnormโ€. Coming out is basically making a declaration of that to a few close family and friends, your social and professional circles, or the world. Itโ€™s a statement of, โ€œThis is who/how I am.โ€ And, in my honest opinion, it should carry the subtext of TAKE IT OR LEAVE ITโ€”not, โ€œPlease like me.โ€ . You canโ€™t tell people, โ€œThis is who/how I am,โ€ and then beg them at the same time to like, love, accept and celebrate all of you, including the parts they donโ€™t know or understand about youโ€”and them be upset if they fail you. (Yes, they should embrace your queerness, but thatโ€™s not the point here.) You need to do that yourself first. If you canโ€™t do that yourself first, it is unrealistic and unfair to expect other people to. . If you do, however, no reaction to your coming out or your queerness can hurt youโ€”at least, not that deeplyโ€”coz even if your surroundings fail you, youโ€™re not failing yourself. If your environment ends up being hostile toward your queerness, you can remove yourself from it for self-care and not feel guilty about it. Iโ€™ve seen many a young queer folks ridden with guilt over distancing themselves from family and friends due to homophobia and transphobia. People being conditioned to caring about other peopleโ€™s well-being and opinions before their own and needing validation from the outside, I guess, are another topic to address. . Anyhow, embrace your own queerness before you share it with the world. ๐Ÿฆ„ . #thanksforcomingtomytedtalk . ๐Ÿ“ธ: @jwilson77 at Nightgowns (Apr 2018) Corset + pasties: @gloria_swansong Pants + suspenders: @nancy_the_girl . #comingout #selflove #gay #queer #queerart #trans #transgender #transisbeautiful #flashbackfriday #itsallcomingbacktomenow #nightgowns #emigrateful #emigr8
