RuPaul's Stream of Consciousness

So, I admit that one of my guilty pleasures is watching RuPaul's Drag Race and RuPaul's Untucked.

Sadly, I really shouldn't watch these right before I go to bed because last night my dreams were totally peppered with drag queens. I'm completely enamored with these ladies and, I know it is probably hard for some to understand, I find them to be incredibly strong people to be able to live the life and be the people that they are. If only I had that sort of strength of character. I also learn all sorts of terminology like "T" and "throwing shade". For those of you NOT in the 'know', "throwing shade" is talking trash about a friend or acquaintance or to publicly denounce or disrespect a person. I have to admit that I have been guilty of throwing a little shade in my day, but nothing like how these ladies roll with it.

Now for "T", I actually learned about that when I read and then watched the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

In that movie and book, there is a character, Lady Chablis, who is a preoperative transsexual woman who is also a full-time drag queen.

The Lady Chablis spoke about her "T" and hiding her "candy", which references the truth about who she is (a man). This, of course then makes me think of the movie The Crying Game.

See, I titled this stream of consciousness because everything seems to make me think of something else and so on and so on...
