      True to yourself? I don’t know of a greater deception to self than denying your DNA.

      God made no mistake.

    I have nothing against gay men or drag queens. But I do have something again mediocrity. Jide what’s worth doing is worth doing well. The makeup/wigs/styling are hideous and make you look like a mockery.

    Please step up your swag and reapply. Your making Bob Risky look too good.
