Good Morning America Shoved Britney Spears’ Drag Queens Off Camera (But Her Dad Grabbed A Pic)

OH SNAP — At yesterday’s Good Morning America taping of Britney Spears’ San Francisco concert, “a very sweet man with a deep Southern drawl” asked drag queen Pollo Del Mar (“The Queen of San Francisco Media”) and her event co-host, fellow Trannyshack staple Heklina, for a photo. It turns out his name was Jamie. As in Jamie Spears, father of Britney. The pop star even tweeted the photo — but that was about as much love as Pollo and Heklina received yesterday. That’s because, Pollo writes in an email, “Good Morning America went soooo far out of it’s way to make sure there were no drag queens in the opening segment with Robin [Roberts] & Sam [Champion].” Fellow drag performers Juanita More, Donna Sachet, and Sister Roma also prepped fans before Britney’s entrance (where she gave a shout out to the LGBT teens seated in the front). The taped performance airs tomorrow morning, and we certainly don’t know how GMA producers will edit the footage, and whether the queens will make the broadcast. But remember, this is the same network that booted Adam Lambert from making network appearances after his same-sex American Music Awards kiss, but is urging domestic abuser Chris Brown to come back to GMA after throwing a violent tantrum last week. UPDATE: As you know from the special’s airing on Tuesday morning, the drag queens were MIA.
