look me in the eyes and tell me that Sasha Velour isn’t talented. The way that she paints herself, how she uses drag to express herself and creativity is amazing. Drag is about being yourself, putting the art that you want to put into the world out there. Sasha is such a breath of fresh air from the typical “pretty girls”. She’s so unique and different.
Seems like I see a lot of hate because she talks about queer issues. This doesn’t make sense at all, why wouldn’t you want someone to talk about this? Sasha is a queer person, trying to educate other queer people about the past. She’s breaking walls down between what is seen as male and female, pushing the gender binary up to its limit. It’s so important to have this, especially in this society. Sasha is incredibly smart too, I mean she’s a Fullbright Scholar. That isn’t easy to do. She knows what she’s talking about, that doesn’t make her pretentious and full of herself. Just because she considers herself a “brainy queen” doesn’t mean that she is narcissistic. So many other girls call themselves the pretty one, but when Sasha calls herself the smart one it’s bad? Someone that doesn’t like Sasha please tell me why you don’t like her because I don’t get it.
