UK: The Firing of Vanity Von Glow

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

Vanity Von Glow is a British drag queen who caused a bit of a stir by doing something allegedly controversial:

Performing at a free speech event.


So I'm not exactly a fan of drag. You won't be seeing me at a drag club any time soon. But I don't hate drag queens.

Don't get me wrong: The ones encouraging 8-year-olds to engage in this kind of behaviour do rub me up the wrong way, but I know they're not all like that.

And as far as I can see, Vanity is a free-thinking drag queen who is willing to politely disagree with people on the right and left. And to risk his career by performing on stage at a free speech event is commendable in my books.

But now I see a concerted campaign to get him fired and blacklisted, and it reminds me of what happened to Martina Markota in New York City.

It isn't right, and I'll defend Vanity Von Glow in the face of bullying from the LGBT authoritarians.

Since when did the freedom to say, think, and associate become a FAR RIGHT agenda.

I would rather have heard Jacks opinion on how the Free Speech Rally went.
