California Rep. Adam Schiff has a challenger for his spot in Congress and it is going to be a tough one for the radical leftist to fend off.
In battling this new challenger he risks offending the LGBTQ community who could be offended at any attacks on this competitor, The Los Angeles Times reported.
“There’s a lot of crossover,” Girl said. “When I do drag, I host a lot of shows. I’m on the mic, listening to people, [and] engaging with people. It’s really not very dissimilar from being in a political setting where I’m giving a campaign speech. I used every drag show that I’m in to speak about politics and speak about my policies and let folks know about our campaigns. It’s actually been a really wonderful tool.”
“I think there’s been overemphasis on the fact that I’m a drag queen and an under-emphasis on the fact that I’m a trans person,” Girl said. “Drag is what I do, trans is who I am. And I’m not running to be a drag queen in Congress. I’m running to be a trans representative. I’m running to be a representative for all the people in my district. But I specifically want to be able to be a voice for trans people.”
“It was really inspiring because I ran as my authentic, very visibly queer and trans self,” the challenger said. “Putting yourself in a situation like that when you are an openly trans person can be a scary thing.”
