Lizzo and the Girls

Isn’t it a horrible double standard that I’m now going to tell a story about Lizzo – who is roughly the size Adam was at Sundance – and I’m gonna call her fabulous?  But, you know, the mind is a terrible thing to misplace.  Lizzo’s a big girl with big ideas – and it stands to reason if she’s gonna think outside the box, it’s a pretty big box.  Last month, she wanted to protest Tennessee’s ordinance which prohibits adults from performing in drag.  First she made a little speech. “In light of recent and tragic events and current events, I was told by people on the internet, ‘Cancel your shows in Tennessee’, and ‘Don’t go to Tennessee’.  Their reason was valid, but why would I not come to the people who need to hear this message the most?  Why would I not create a safe space in Tennessee where we can celebrate drag entertainers and celebrate our differences?”  She then brought out 19 drag queens, including Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Kandy Muse, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, and a host of other local girls.  You go, Lizzo!
