At Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, the scene of one of the most ferocious and protracted battles of World War II – a site of legendary valor and sacrifice on the part of American troops – U.S. service members from the LGBT contingent took to the stage as Drag Queens and Drag Kings in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender troops.
And to think, just a few years ago, gay and lesbian drag performances on a military base would have been unthinkable and potentially a cause for dismissal from the service. The good old days. Maybe it’s a good thing that Obama is decimating our military. Who needs a strong fighting force when the Commander-in-Chief is considered a pantywaist by the rest of the world? Now this.
