Gay Troops Perform Drag Show On American Military Base

American gay and lesbian troops stationed in Japan performed in the first ever drag show on a U.S. military base.

The gay and lesbian troop members performed in drag — wearing full makeup, heels and wigs — while lip syncing to hit songs such as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” at the Kadena Air Base in Japan, Theweek.com reports.

Navy Lt. Marissa Greene told Stars and Stripes she only expected to sell 75 tickets for the variety show, but ended up selling more than 400 in ten days. The event went through the same approval process as other on-base fundraisers go through, with the only caveat being that it was not allowed to be labeled a “drag show” in its publicity materials. The show was warmly received by spectators, who rocked out to performances by the likes of Manny Nuff and Chocolate Sunrise (“a crowd favorite,” the website notes.)

Just a few years ago, performances like these would have been grounds for a possible discharge. The repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has made it possible for events like this to occur. –Jordan Valinsky Source

President Obama would’ve been so proud.

    This performance just illustrates what I’ve been saying all along. They just want attention. They want to be seen. That’s why I tell parents to spend quality time with your children. Especially you fathers. A man is absolutely crucial in a child’s life.

    It won’t be long before we see uniformed military members in full drag. Because their feelings and their needs are more important than tradition or standards.

    I doubt they will be fighting in drag, but I’m proud that they did this! It’s pretty harsh to think that they won’t perform their jobs well just because they like what they like.

    ————
    So, is the basis of this statement rooted in men turning out straight if the father is there to consistently knock his scheboinker back soft each time it “Rose” inappropriately”?

    How does a parent raise you to be straight?
    Are there no men who raised their boys & they turned out to be gat DESPITE the fact that deddy tossed a football with him?
    As a confessed lesbian, would that logic also apply to the fact that you were raised by a woman & still ended up gay?
    Is the fathers influence that which determines what will make a d@ck hard and a tongue wag?
    How does Barack Obama end up in EVERY post?

    #inquiring minds want to know – OK, I’m lying, I want to know.

    As a Navy vet, putting on performances in drag used to be part of the crossing the line ceremony. When a ship crosses the equator during a deployment, anyone who is crossing for the first time on a Naval vessel is called a Wog or Pollywog. Wogs are then initiated to become Shellbacks. Part of the crossing the line ceremony is the beauty pageant where the guys use whatever is onboard to dress like women or at lest appear feminine. The winner is allowed to sit on King Neptune’s court.

    There’s a lot more to the crossing of the line, but I had to put this out there. This is nothing new; they don’t go to work dressed this way. And this has nothing to do with President Obama.
