#tbt to 7 years ago to when my college threw its “Love is a Drag” Valentine’s show and brought in @venusdlitemadonna to host it.
So 7 years ago I decided to step out of my house in drag for the first time as Avon Eve, go to school, and perform Scheibe by Lady Gaga in front of complete strangers. I remember conciously thinking that if I chose to do this I WAS going to be good enough to make it on drag race and FINALLY establish myself as an artist...
Flash forward to my dragniversary 7 years later as I anxiously await the premiere of @rupaulsdragrace and the beginning of all my twinky dreams come true!
In the words of our great lord mother: EVERYBODY SAY LOVE!!!

Well Sunday night reality TV really gave me ALL OF THE FEELS tonight. @yvie_jones from @imacelebrityau stood so very bravely in front of her fellow contestants (and those of us who are a sucker for reality TV!) & refused to weigh herself. She shared a glimpse of her past relating to an eating disorder & how living in a larger body has impacted her life.
Tonight she is my SHEro 🌸 Fighting against the norm & society’s obsession with weight loss. We need more of this narrative & we need more of it on TV - a fat woman who accepts who she is & stands up proudly for what she believes in.
Thank you Yvie 💜
Can't stop fawning over the fucking perfection of this photo of the next winner 😏 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 11, my pal @oddlyyvie !! My favorite thing about it is that in true Oddly fashion the yellow of her arms and legs look like fingers as if she's a hand wearing fierce couture. S*T*U*N
