A big shout-out to ELLE magazine Saturday for going a little bit old school and featuring not an 8-year-old transwoman but a good old 8-year-old drag queen who’s a diva and proud. And he’s getting plus-size support from mom.

Sad … in a good way?

Ignorant parents making life altering decisions for their prepubescent child. Fucking tragic. https://t.co/DdjHBaPgVS

But he was featured in a video by ELLE … that’s got to be life altering.
