Dear Michael Alig,
I want to first say, welcome back to the real world! I cannot even imagine how it was in there nor do I ever want to. 17 years is a lot for anyone to handle but I can say this, takes a lot of character to be able to come out and be able to look at life with a more positive look.
I am 23 years old and I am a Drag Queen who works in nightlife. I appreciate the things you did for this community and nightlife, you made it more mainstream and allowed it to be more accepting. As nightlife people, we bring excitement, entertainment, and just great times for the customers. We bring business to the venues and make the nights more FAB! You have to be a certain type of person to be able to handle this type of work. You created a type of lifestyle that people will take part in for years to come, thank you for that!
I have been seeing a lot of comments and posts from some people who are excited about your release and there are people who wish you would be murdered. The harsh comments I feel are unnecessary because I do not feel two wrongs make a right. As a tax payer and as a citizen in this country, I feel that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. You served your time and should be allowed a second chance in this world. I am a strong believer that whatever we do in this lifetime, we will be judged in the after life. Your past will always be with you and your final judgement will be there waiting for you in the next life.
I hope with everything that is going on: the interviews, the fame, just everything, you take it and use it for the best. You have been a role model for a lot of people for years and you let down a lot of people with what happened. Now with this new freedom, you have the opportunity to give back and make a difference. Give back, GIVE back, GIVE BACK! Make the rest of your life a difference and as RuPaul says, "DON'T FU#K IT UP!" but if you have no clue what I am talking about, watch RuPaul's Drag Race.
A few more things before I let you go, I do not want you to think, I think what you did was right. I do not want you to think I am praising you and worship the ground you walk. I feel what happened was very disgusting and no one will ever forget it. But I respect the work you did in the past and I know you will do well in the future.
On that note, fly free bird, FLY and let your flight see many glorious sights!
With Much Love,
Brandon, I never said "I heard you are drama..." I make my own opinions. And you are drama, all I've known you as is drama. U have poor hygiene which is something I've experienced first hand and you probably don't go out cause no one can stand you. I know who you are I've known u since u were 18 so get off your high horse. You sucked as a drag queen u sucked as a friend. No rumors here all facts. Go scratch...
I don't have time for this. I'm an architect now making six figures. That's. 5 figures more then you'll ever make
Everything above pretty much sums up the things that will come into your life, those negative tones and energy. I am thankful for this because if I did not know negativity, how would I ever know what positive things were. I am thankful, that someone came out of their way, away from their six figure job, to tell me how much I suck as a person. Thank you!
All I can say to this is, I might not make millions of dollars or make as much as you now, I might never make that much, but hey, I am going to live a happy life with what I have and never will have to shove it in people's faces. I do not need validation of my happiness because by the end of the day, those people who have been there and will be there until I die, is all the happiness I need in my life. Thank you for helping me realize this!
Now its time to SASHAY AWAY!
Summer Coming to an End!
Wow, its almost September and I must say, I have never looked sooo pasty!
Where has this summer gone and what have I done to really enjoy it. Well to be honest I have done some exciting things this summer, but the more exciting stuff is this fall.
My summer started off quite eventful: I was in Albany for a week and then NYC for a week, doing gigs. Albany pride was so much fun especially seeing someone get their cheek bitten off. Other than that, my gurl Bette was amazing because she let me stay at her place near the bar, which made it soo much easier to go to the shows and pride festivities. Plus she is an awesome woman to hangout with, such a big heart.
I got to see my grandmother, who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, but has made a recovery. I believe she is the first person in my family to survive cancer, which is a blessing. During this visit, my little sister and I got to spend sometime together and really be the big goofs we are.
RANT MOMENT!: OK, so I love my family dearly but how messed up is this. The cats I had for the longest part of my life are now gone. When my family bought the new house, they got rid of the cats without telling us. So depressing because those cats would cheer you up if you were down. The one I feel the most for is my little sister because those were her buddies, she spent the most time with them.
Anyways....NYC was a blast as well, my older sister and I got to spend some needed time together, the show was fun at Boots N Saddles and I got to see the new Snow white movie w/ Charlize Theron...SHE WAS GORGEOUS AND DIVALICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!
Other than that, Rochester Pride was great and all the amazing photoshoots I got to do. This summer was definitely productive. Now I am excited for fall because I get to spoil myself to boy clothes. JizzaBella has been pampered for awhile, I need to pamper myself.

Outlook on my Present life!
It has been awhile since I have written in you and thought I would catch you up on what my thoughts have been recently. After a long conversation with a true friend, I have realized there are a lot of things that I see wrong with myself and the environment I tend to surround myself with.
One thing I tend to do is surround myself with people that I feel are good people, but are not good people for me. Never have I been happy of drugs, violence, or a lot of sex. I am a man and I do find myself being frustrated at times but being a slut is not the answer in my life. I make jokes that I whore it up and that being the Queen of Jizz has its duties, but its all a persona I portray. Some people find it to be true, some see right through it. It comes to that part where you need to get to know me before you can judge me. Another flaw that drips from this paragraph is dishonesty. Me playing a character and having that character blend into my life out of drag makes it confusing for those that associate with me. When I play that persona of a slut as a conversation starter at times....for example: "Want to ride my di*k?"...it makes it hard for people to know what is true and what is not.
That is something I did to my own reputation and no one else. At times I wish I was a slut because that would allow me to feel more attention, attention that I tend to go after a lot, but in reality I do not want the sexual attention, I sometimes look for, just because I hate the feeling of being useless after. I want to feel appreciated just as much as I appreciate others. I have come a far way since the beginning of my exploration of life but there are things I still need to change about me, that will allow me to become that person I want to be in my future! With time, comes change. All I can do now is to move past the judgements of those who do not matter to me and listen to the ones that love me and those who only want the best for me! Life is not a silver platter, in fact it is a dirty plate, you just have to pick your brand of soap of preference to help you clean that grime of life, to give you the finished product of a clean plate! Hahah sounds lame doesn't it? I was thinking that as I was typing it!
Anyways, I want to continue writing in this diary in the future, it helps clean my mind of thoughts I have! Take care and I will be writing more soon!
With much love,
