Differences in people

By Debbie Langford
     I attended the Gay Cabaret Program, I felt nervous and out of character.  I was nervous for one because it felt like I should not be there regardless of the reason why I was attending.  When I arrived there were not many people there and it was more females than males and everybody was laughing and having a good time.  The hostess was very funny, pretty and energetic, she made everybody feel welcome and comfortable about attending this event.  As the night progress each performer came out one by one and performed. What was so amazing about the event was that some of the performers were actually student here at the college along with their fiance's, friends, partners and even parents that attended to support them and real live drag queens performed and had a real good time doing it for the students here at community college.

     I observed how homosexuals, gays and lesbians really enjoyed being whom they chose to be and not what our western society tells them what they have to be. The drag queens were really good performers and looked incredible doing it if I may say so myself.  All in all the night was fun, entertaining and very different for me, after awhile I found myself joining in on the screaming, hollering, laughing and cheering on the students for their brilliant performance.

     I observed a bunch of individuals females and males, regardless if they were heterosexual or homosexual really relaxed lay back and having a really good time in their surroundings and just letting it all hang out.  In my opinion I may not agree with how they choose to live their lives, but it was great to watch people enjoy what they were doing. Just like in this video clip:

  1. I thought this was very good post.I believe it was very nice of you to step out of your comfort zone and attend an event like this,not knowing if you will feel comfortable enough to be there but still taking the chance and attending. I probably wouldnt have attended unless someone would have dragged me to a show like this.
