D and Alaysies on the High Heel Race

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

D, left, is pictured with Alaysies

D – “I grew up in the metropolitan area, but this is my first drag race. I dragged my best friend, Alaysies, down here, because I was like, we have to go see this. I have always heard about how fabulous this event was and wanted to go and support the gay and lesbian community in this city.

“For me, I love what the gays stand for. They are all about acceptance and at times like this, flaunting how proud they are of who they are. I mean, out here, it is like watching a block full of celebrities. Doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight, the crowd treats all of the queens like goddesses. Being here shows me how much we are progressing as a city. I have always felt like D.C. is one of the top places in the world. The drag race lets me know how true that really is.”

I grew up in the DMV, and know that there are certain areas in the city that are open to gays and some places that discriminate.

Alaysies – “When D told me about the event, I was all excited, but didn’t really know what to expect. I grew up in the DMV, and know that there are certain areas in the city that are open to gays and some places that discriminate. I try and stay in the parts that are okay, but every so often, I need to venture into the parts that discriminate. It is very uncomfortable to me that there are places here where I can’t really be myself. In those areas, I will butch it up a little bit and you will hear me trying to sound tough. I’ll walk around with a swagger and say things like, don’t mess with me! But when I am around the queens, like right now, it’s all, like, Heeey girrrrl! I can act and dress as I want and just be myself. I love that.

“To me, that is why these events are so important. They allow all of us to be ourselves and celebrate gay life in one of the most diverse settings I have seen in this city. For many of us, we spend so much of life trying to fight against who we really were. When I was younger, I felt very androgynous and wanted to wear women’s clothing to express that. I fought it for some time, but then just realized that it was a part of me. Now, I have a little mustache, but I am also wearing leggings and women’s shoes. That is just the way that I feel comfortable and natural. Some people may not understand it, but that is okay. I just want them to accept it.

“Being here makes me so happy, but I am only disappointed that I didn’t dress up as well. It will have to be next year.”

  1. Because it seems no one wants to do anything about it, they are poeurfwl enough to have stopped any attempt at reform for decades and it seems very good at frightening and brainwashing the American public.Last year the top ten health insurance companies made 8.27 billion, that might seem little in comparison with say Exxon, but when you consider this is profit on your premiums and avoiding paying out at every opportunity, then it makes you sick to your stomach.We spend 16% and rising of our GDP on health care, more than any other country in the world, and yet it performs very badly, right along side Slovenia, if it had performed as well as France, Australia and Japan it is estimated that 101000 lives a year could be saved.The Mckinsey global institute estimates that 91 billion a year is excess insurance company administrative costs due to complexity, still feeling calm??45000 people die every year due to lack of insurance and also insurance companies refusing to pay out.I was talking to a lady last weekend who’s child has Downs syndrome, the insurance companies refused to pay the medical bills, she was made bankrupt, as if her life isn’t hard enough!!!I generally get a lot of thumbs down when I post these facts, people it would seem don’t like the stark reality of what is actually happening and prefer to listen to the lies and the twitterings of right wing loonies like Glenn Beck, the incredible in-humanity of how the insurance company’s can select who they want to insure and dig up anything that can stop them paying out is beyond belief.This country faces certain economic disaster if the costs keep on sky rocketing due to waste and the general inefficiency with no regulation whatsoever! Reform one way or another has to happen and happen quick, then maybe Americans will sleep a little easier instead of being one serious illness away from bankruptcy!!!
