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,
The Single Life!
Soo with Valentine's day passing, I got thinking, I needed to write about my single life.
For all those who did not know, I am single and always have been! Shocking? ehh not really.
I must admit it gets lonely but at the same time I do not know if I have time to have a boo. With my schooling, work, and drag, life becomes too busy.
But let me say with Drag, it makes it easier to be single because its not like people want me anyways. Drag is the major blocker of dating because people get confused to what gender I am or my interests. I constantly get told because of drag, I must be fem! Well not really, to be honest I like to be pretty "butch" at times too =)
Drag is a hobby of mine and I have become more seriously with it over time, but right now I just need to focus on myself. If I were to date someone, I would need them to accept my drag and what I do with it. It is a big part of me and if someone cannot accept that, then Sashay away!
As I get to know new people, one thing they tell me is they are impressed that I come out and say I am a drag queen and I would have to say that is because I do not want to keep it a secret. I like to be honest and blunt because the truth will come out in uglier forms, if you are not honest from the gecko.
Being single sucks at times especially at night, when you just want to cuddle with someone but I overcome that loneliness and just find one of my fluffy pillows =).
Anyways, I need to get to bed but I want to end off saying, if you think you would date a drag queen or want to give a holler to me? =) then speak up bitch because I have a hard time picking up on signs hehe.
