“One of the Phoenix area’s best-known drag queens is calling his former friend — candidate for governor Kari Lake (R) — a hypocrite after Lake weighed in on drag performances, the latest front in the conservative culture war,” the Arizona Republic reports.
“Richard Stevens, who has performed for 25 years as Barbra Seville, said he was disappointed and decided to speak out after Lake tweeted Friday that ‘they kicked God out of schools and welcomed the Drag Queens. They took down our Flag and replaced it with a rainbow.’”
“Stevens shared pictures and texts from Lake in several social media posts and said Lake had attended countless shows and private events over the decades of their friendship. He said he had performed as Marilyn Monroe in front of Lake’s daughter when she was 9 or 10 years old.”
Lake posted a response on Instagram which included calling the media the “enemy of the people” and “the right hand of the devil.”Save to Favorites
