Justin Vivian Bond: What Have You Done for Me Legislately?
From the vanity of Mx Viv:
What do we do when the shits hit our fans? Get loud, get angry, and SHINE ON!!!
If I hadn’t already lived through so much of this desperate anti-queer, trans, and drag rhetoric in my lifetime I might be more upset rather than disgusted. But after putting us through hell these wretched cowards always get beat back into hiding.
NOT US! We have been here forever and are NOT going away. I might even go as far as saying those poor, evil trolls, with sad, sick souls are lucky to have us leading the way to a more glorious way of living and loving -even if they’re too clueless to get it.
This Pride I’m singing songs about staying strong and being FIERCE!
Expect songs by PJ Harvey, Sinead “Pope Ripper” O’Connor, along with some originals and some heartfelt TRANTHEMS.
In the words of one of our queer ancestors, Sterling Holloway, aka Winnie the Pooh, “If you want a tough stain out, SHOUT IT OUT!”
This Pride will be a RIOT!!!
