Southern Decadence

Southern Decadence is a parade of assless chaps, stuffed loin cloths, prissy gay men, big hairy bears and surprisingly more and more lesbians. It is one of the country's largest gay celebrations and what better city to host it every year than New Orleans. Living here as I do, i ventured out. I went to one of the most dreaded of all lesbian events, the drag king show. Dear God! It was the saddest thing ever and so of course, I stayed for hours. ok, here is the thing girls, there needs to be some sort of mentor program between gay men and lesbians. A big brother, little sister kind of thing whereby gay men teach lesbians how to dress and dance. Throw away the polyester plaid pants that have not fit you since 1975! Put down the collar on your stupid polo shirt. It did not look good in the 80's and it does not look good now. And for pete's sake, learn how to move your hips. The highlight of the show was the guest appearance of a drag queen and do you know why, because she could dance. Why should I put a dollar in your cargo pants if all you are going to do is stand there and lip sync poorly?
