      There was a time that blacks could not march in the Mummer’s day Parade in the City of Brotherly Love! Thankfully then, the City was going to revoke their parade Permit because of the new Civil Rights law of 1964. Seeing Drag Queens in the Parade is a welcome sight. They are always at their best with boas and feathers!

      Living not far from Philly, and having seen more than my share of Mummers parades, the people marching already are just one sashay away from being drag queens. The feathers, the sparkles, the strutting. Please. The only thing different is it’s OFFICIAL they’re are drag queens in the Mummers parade.

      Lets be honest… nobody REALLY watches the parade… New Years Day in Philly is Freaking COLD… all anyone does is “Say” they are going to the Parade… run over to Broad Street… snap a few pics so u can say You were there… run back to the bars… if it is morning you are doing “hair of the dog” bloody Marys… if it is afternoon or evening… then you are taking notes and pics of the guys still drunk from new years eve or drunk again from the hair of the dog drinks that have had all day… LOL

      Actually New Years is a great time to be in The City of Brotherly Love
