when @llcoolj asked me one word to describe this feeling… NON-BINARY. last night was the ultimate public artistic healing expression of my journey through gender and its multitudes. and it motherfuckin paid off. but real talk, the winner last night was @bollymernard. baby girl, my little shaky leaf is now a tree rooted and thriving and fruiting! i am so proud of you, to see how far you’ve come, to bear witness to how far you will go. thank you @lipsyncbattle for trusting us, giving us this platform to be loud and queer and political. i mean you asked me and molly on, what did you expect? thank you @rupaulsdragrace for creating space and the queens who joined me on stage last night @ongina @morganmcmichaels @mug4dayz @jessicawild88. thank you to all the dancers, the @selahgospelchoir, and to the entire team who makes the whole gig run. thank you @bethanycmeyers for always being by my side, especially on that day. thank you to all my friends who came to the taping. i love you. this is truly one of the most epic proud moments of my career thus far and just downright the most fun i’ve ever had. lastly, thank you to all my queer, non-binary, gender variant and trans siblings who inspire me every single day to be more. do more. fight more. last nights win resulted in a $10,000 donation to the @translawcenter center – thank you for all that you do, we need you more than ever. happy pride y’all, we still have so much work to do, but today i celebrate. #allofitisyou #spacebetween oh and @arianagrande… call me. x. GOD IS NON-BINARY.
