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?
I understand trans people.Trans kids.But this…What does a kid know about drag queens?He's been introduced,by his mom, I guess.Seems wrong. https://t.co/KySxhGcgB0

But he was featured in a video by ELLE … that’s got to be life altering.
This PARENT should be ASHAMED OF PROMOTING HER agenda. WHAT 8 year old is going to dream up Lactatia as a name? Give me a break https://t.co/UNnz69Urpa

The next generation of drag queens has to come from somewhere, right?
