RuPaul Alumni Spread the Love

Mathews Mansion all dolled up for a pride event.

So good people, I went to the Triangle Community Center's Pride In The Park 2015 event a couple of weeks ago. It was held in Mathews Park located in good ol' Norwalk, CT.

The headliners of the event is what motivated me to attend. I squealed when I found out RuPaul's Drag Race alumni Alyssa Edwards, Laganja Estranja and Shangela were going to bring their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to the stage.

As I walked towards the stage, I passed the backstage area, and right there within spitting distance was Alyssa Edwards. Now, I didn't spit at her, instead,  I smiled and whispered the words, "You are awesome." Alyssa gave me a coy look and smile and seductively mouthed the words, "Thank you."

The girls put on a fun show. I was very impressed with how Shangela really gave it her all. Laganja made me gag when she leaped off the stage and went into a death drop. As for Alyssa, she was in mother mode, and kept it subtle but sexy. A good time was had by all.

BTW, a co-worker of mine accidentally saw a pic of Shangela when she was looking at other pics on my phone of a former student. She looked baffled and screeched, "What is that?" I chuckled and replied, "A drag queen." She then handed the phone back to me. I then laughed some more.

We didn't do Pride, too much controversy. Between the Iggy Azeala mess and ongoing drama with groups being sent into exile if they don't fit the marketing mold, it isn't as much fun as it was years ago.
