Hartford to Blackface Drag Queen: Go Home

Shirley Q. Liquor, a "...white man performing as an alcoholic, Ebonics-speaking, Southern black welfare mother with 19 kids...." has been canceled from a Feb 23rd performance at Chez Est. Story here.

Front page article in the Courant. Not too shabby. And I am honored to count Regina Dyton and Kamora Harrington (quoted in the article and leading the opposition to this act) as friends and mentors.
