In this video, we talk to you about drag queens and their significance in our society. I believe that by watching a video about them, you can learn a lot and make an informed decision on whether it is something that appeals to you or not.

I have the privilege of having grown up in Boystown, in Chicago, and have lived in Wilton, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami, where I had the opportunity to be around and interact with drag queens. My personal experience in these situations has given me a deeper appreciation for the uniqueness and creativity of drag queens.

Back in the late nineties, when I was in my twenties, RuPaul was gaining immense popularity for his songs and appearance as a drag queen. He was famous for looking better than some women when he dressed up in drag. At that time, drag queens were mostly associated with the art and entertainment industry, particularly in gay spaces. Seeing drag queen shows was considered a form of entertainment, similar to going to a circus for performances. Though I found it interesting to watch, it wasn't particularly my thing; I would rather read a book.

It is important to note that drag queens of today are quite different from those during the nineties. Although there are still art and entertainment elements involved, drag queens have become more mainstream and have a broader influence on different communities, particularly the gay population.

As someone who has experienced drag queens in various social settings, I've noticed a shift in how they are presented today versus in the past. The difference lies in ideology, and drag queens have become an integral part of our social life. In the past, one would only go to drag queen shows for entertainment, but nowadays, drag queens are a common feature at parties and even gay Chamber of Commerce events. Ten years ago, I was surprised to see drag queens stepping out of the entertainment space and into our social lives. Now, drag queens are everywhere we go, and it's no longer just about entertainment.

Although I find drag queens entertaining at times, there are moments when I don't want to be entertained. Sometimes I want to be in a serious mode and deal with the problems in my life. Drag queens have blurred the line between entertainment and our serious lives. They have taken theater and art, especially performance art, and brought it into our social spaces. That, in my opinion, is a mistake because people now think it's a social norm for men to dress up as women. It's essential to understand the psychology behind this and what it means for us as a society.

Enabling drag queens to enter our social space without confrontation has significant psychological implications. There's a big difference between doing it in public for entertainment and doing it in our private space, becoming a drag queen, and inviting that entertainment into our social space. Borrowing that way of being from the entertainment world and putting it into our real life comes with negative effects, and it's something we need to understand.

To put it succinctly, there's an enabling without confrontation of what's going on with drag queens. It's a direct analogy, but it's something we need to grasp to appreciate the issue at hand.
