walk up in the club like “wow drag culture is more respected in queer circles than being a trans woman, i wish we could respect the lives of a subset of women more than we gawk over a game of dress up”
These are members of a drag troupe in Austin, Texas who call themselves Poo Poo Platter. There have been several discussions around their constant racism and cultural appropriation, and they consciously choose to actively replicate white supremacy with their drag.
Here’s their facebook page. They seem to have responded to the backlash against their racism by inviting a drag queen known for using racial slurs to refer to black audience members(then again, maybe she was the only act they could afford…?).
Thought I’d share this photo of well known Bay Area/California Drag Queen Anthony Diaz aka “Grace Towers” in full on blackface proving that even POC can still be racist as fuck.
The first two pics are of Divine donning brown face to portray a hypersexual latina in one of the most racist movies I’ve ever seen: Lust in the Dust.
RuPaul says “racism is a bore” so is calling people out on it.
Privileged gay cis Black male who gives rules and advice on how to be a woman, okay…
Through with Ru & his pandering to his white fans and clit riding of Madonna. Over you.
She doesn’t learn does she?
Just your regular reminder that Sharon Needles isn’t the worst, but she really wants to be.
White people won’t let us have shit I swear smh
Ugh and I actually liked her, another one bites the dust
They won’t even let us have Kwanzaa.
Rupaul though….he was okay with this?
of course he was ok with this. ya’ll think rupaul would defend blackness in exchange for his precious white queens? ha. as if.
unlearning problematic behavior is a long ass process
you will fuck up
handle it gracefully.
What Ru leaves out is that it was Drag Queens of Color, specifically Black Drag Queens, and Transgender Women of Color like Martha P. Johnson, Miss Major, and Sylvia Rivera. So yes, while you can live out and proud, thank Women of Color, Femmes of Color, and Drag Queens of Color, honey.
