As odd as this may sound, I was inspired to finally start doing this by a Drag Show.
I had been thinking about it, but putting it off, for quite awhile and then last Saturday I went out for a Bachelorette party and there I found the inspiration I needed.
It was a club. There was loud music and sweaty people and lots of booze (but not for me) and then at 12:30 they pushed everyone off the dance floor and started the show!
It was a small show. 3 Drag Queens came out and lip-synced to different songs and did little dances in their outrageous outfits. I stood there watching and realized that I was grinning from ear to ear.
These men were all decked out and dancing around with bits of their wigs flying off into the crowd and they looked so happy! They were in a place where not only could they be themselves, that deepest part of themselves that is most vulnerable, but people actually cheered them for it! How great is that?!
I don’t think I have ever had such a moment of total me-ness. Possibly because I don’t know what or who that is.
The sad part is that so many people would judge these guys for doing what they do. As someone searching for their moment of me-ness, I applaud them.
I hope I find my inner Drag Queen!
