Hey boys, Robbie your editor here. I found this video on Queerty and yeah it’s kind of funny but I also think it’s a little heart breaking. Is this what trans people and drag queens have to go through? Feel free to take this as a serious dialogue on societies close minded views of gender or as a humour video. I don’t know what it’s really meant to be.
Being a drag queen is much more than the clothes, so we’re afraid this video is a bit misleading. Instead of 10 Hours of Walking In LA as a Drag Queen, it should really be called Guy Puts On Heels For the First Time and Walks Around Like a Bro In A Dress.
Big difference. In this parody of the New York catcall video, this guy’s strut serves major uncomfortable fraternity prank when any drag queen worth her weight in eye shadow knows it’s all about confidence.
Still, it’s nice to see that he gets (mostly) positive reactions while attempting to work the streets of Hollywood. Though in a neighborhood that’s all about spectacle, he almost just blends right in.
