2014 Drag Year In Review – September

Facebook comes for drag queens

There are some that say it wasn’t about drag queens, but for those affected, it seemed an awful lot like there was some motive behind the “Real Name Policy” and its attempt to give the queens whose names were ripped from Facebook and replace with unfamiliar names like Michael Williams (Sister Roma’s “Legal Name”). But you can’t come for queens without them letting you have it and that’s just what they did. Before we knew it, Sister Roma, Heklina and Lil’ Miss Hot Mess were at the Facebook offices and ready to march down the Facebook campus. Luckily talks prevented anything too bad from happening, but we were ready to march at every Facebook office in the country and even the world if necessary.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were at it again, raising money for the funding of their film Stilettos of Shanghai, a film about Seven Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and their Pope who visited China in June to continue their battle for human rights at Shanghai’s Gay Pride celebration. The entire trip was filmed by filmmaker Monet Allard who needs some help to finish up the film. CLICK HERE to donate and check out Pollo Del Mar with Sister Roma at the fundraising event.
