Reply to "Wigstock 2003 and post-Wigstock events"

I must say that the harshness of some of the responses in this category surprised me. That being said this was my first Wigstock, so maybe a fresh perspective will help.

As a member of the Motherboards, who walks the drag and preppy line as well as anyone, I'm very sensitive to acceptance or lack of there of. I don't worry about the acceptance of my mother friends seeing me in my Wall St. mode, but I do worry about bashers.

I've also been to a number of events before were I've felt the Kaki's were in attendance to gawk, including the 2001 Exotic Erotic Ball. (Awful!)

I didn't get that sense on Saturday. Could there have been a better drag showing? Absolutely. But there was a fair showing of Punks, freaks and geeks and I didn't feel that anyone was there to make a spectical of anyone else, they were just there to enjoy the show.

In the end isn't acceptance what all this is about?

Now for those of you who have attended/performed in Wigstocks past....I HEAR YOU! Nothing is ever as good as the original. (Case in point the first time i did blow) But please don't forget the newbies and what an event like this can mean in terms of inspiration to a new queen or believe it or not....a Kaki who's never had the guts to get dressed in public.
