First drag queen to run the Milk Club

|
(5)

Here's some good news for some bleak days: Anna Conda, whose given name is Glendon Hyde, is set to become the first drag queen to serve as president of the Milk Club. Glendon, a well known and exceptionally talented local performer, ran for District 6 supervisor in 2010 as a strong progressive and has been active in district as well as citywide politics as a member of the Entertainment Commission.

Gabriel Haaland reminds me that Anna Conda will not be the first trans person to serve as Milk Club president -- Haaland had the job years ago. But still: Politics is serious, and Anna Conda takes it seriously -- but a little fun in life makes it all bearable. And I suspect that Anna will make the Milke Club meetings lively. Congratulations!

I guess someone is conflating Transvestite and Transsexual. Neither of which are drag queens. Although a drag queen could be either.

Anna as president is super awesome. Congratulations!

Lay off Gabriel. First trans president is worth pointing out. If you're the first person on the one moon and someone's talking about being the first on an adjacent planet, it's not crazy to mention your moonwalk.

I have dibs on first openly SM.

I think there is nothing wrong with a drag queen running the milk club, and yes I do not agree that a drag queen constitutes being a trans, but the meetings will definitely be a whole lot livelier.
