Democrat Presidential Candidate: ‘I Hope You All Have a Fabulous Time at DragCon’
NEW YORK CITY, September 11, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren was the only Democrat presidential candidate to accept an invitation to RuPaul’s DragCon this weekend, a celebration of cross-dressing closely tied to the “gender fluidity” movement.
The event featured drag performances as well as panels on “topics ranging from drag tips to art, culture, and political resistance.” Warren was the only Democrat in the 2020 field to have a presence at the convention, The Hill reports, including a booth where RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Shea Couleé spoke to attendees on Warren’s behalf, and a video message from Warren herself.
“I’m in this fight for full LGBTQ+ equality,” she said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do to make sure that everyone is free to be who they are and to love who they love. A record number of trans Americans were killed last year, disproportionately trans women of color. We need to call it out, and we need to fight back. Everyone should be able to go to school, to walk, to get healthcare, or to just walk down the street without fear of discrimination or violence.”
