Today, Monica shared on here her following a fellow New Orleanian of mine named Big Freedia. Now, we are “fellows” in that we both live in the Big Easy, but we travel in totally different circles. I have only briefly listened to Big Freedia’s music in passing because, to my aged ears, it tends to sound like noise. However, as I shared with Monica, by way of comment, Big Freedia does have a following and quite a few fans, In the city as well as out of it. She was even Grand Marshall of 2019’s Gay Pride event. Once again, we don’t follow in the same circles because I tend to follow the parade at a distance, sometimes marching with my best drag queen friend in the city.
That person is none other than Princess Stephaney, pictured here. She is the one with the big hair and the fluffy white jacket. She is also the bartender at my favorite hang out….well, it is actually my favorite hang out because she is the bartender, but that is another story.
Anyway, here she is pictured with two others, the woman in the flowery top is the editor of a cook book called “The Drag Queen Brunch Cookbook”. There are about 12 drag queens who are featured in association with a meal along with a bit of a biography of said individual.
Even though I don’t cook beyond warming up cans of Dinty Moore Beef Stew and the like, I bought a copy of the book just to support my friend.
She is the soul of entertaining, on or off stage, and just has a very unique sense of humor that has everybody in stitches.
