Yipeeeeee! oohh, that hurt. Miss Vero's head is still poundin from last night's party, children. Were there drag queens in Vero last night? Yes. Was Miss Vero in attendance? Do y'all really have to ask that? Miss Vero has stumbled upon the greatest little group in Indian River County called "People Like Us" here's the info:
Finally, some fun in town! And get this- it's happening at the Long Branch! DJ Silvio is the hippest little cat around and what a sweetheart too! The Queens are well, fabulous as only drag queens can be. But the truly great part was the mix of people. There were some hard drinkin Long Branch locals, hard core lez-b-anns, a group of grannies (trying so hard, bless their hearts, to stay up late to see the show) and young straight couples. Everybody just gettin along together and havin a good ole time. See? Even churches in Vero can't do that!
The party is connected to PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays),
which is a great organization in town doing great things. The Hometown News did a very good profile of the Brevard County chapter.
Maybe, the Press Journal could pick up this story, or is that too much to ask? Miss Vero thinks it's news worthy because according to their blog, this group is processing applications and permits for a Pride Festival in Indian River County. Proceeds would go to PFLAG, IRC Sheriffs Dept., Vero and Sebastian Police Departments and a homeless organization. Sounds like they're queer and here to Miss Vero.
So now Miss Vero proposes a challenge to the local media- Cover this story! And all of y'all that call yourselves Christians out there, let's see how tolerant and Christian like y'all can really be. What would Jesus do? Hunney, he'd be holding that pride banner up high and marching down the street with these children and we should be too!
Peace, love and happiness and a big shout out to our new friends PLU!
And everybody - catch the show again, next Sunday night 10pm at the Long Branch.
