Drag in the Military

Celebrating gender-disorientation.

Mar. 5, 2014

U.S. soldiers at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa put on a fabulous show over the weekend, complete with makeup, dresses and wigs. Stars and Stripes reports, “Since the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, U.S. military bases have hosted gay marriage ceremonies and potluck gatherings. But on Saturday, servicemembers here may have been the first to take to the stage and perform as drag queens on a military installation in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender troops.” The sold-out show was a fundraiser for “OutServe,” which advocates for military homosexuals, and Stars and Stripes billed it as “a sign of the times within the military.” That sign is a bad one, and it will undoubtedly make our military less feared in the world.
