I am a very open and accepting guy from Colorado, looking to make friends and meet people from all sorts of different backgrounds. I like to think of myself as a self proclaimed activist. My blog will highlight my various obsessions... but mostly Rupaul's Drag Race, and just the art of drag in general. If we share some of those obsessions follow me! Like my blog, I'm scattered, I'm a free spirit, I'm gay, I love to have a good time, I'm Donovan.

 

My brother killed himself
on the twenty-eighth Thursday of last year
and I missed four days of work
and my mom wanted to know ‘Why’.
My brother
he was always a fan of beauty
but what he did
was not beautiful at all.

And last week I got the news
that one of my good friends from high school
had overdosed
(again)
except this time
she’d gone too far
and now she was gone.
And I had a hard time falling asleep at night
and her mother
hugged me tight
and thanked me for coming to the service
but I did not
want to be there at all.
This is not
beautiful.

The girl down the street
would’ve turned 21 last year
and I can scarcely imagine
the wild times she would’ve
(should’ve)
had.
But she is buried six feet deep
after falling nearly 300
and she did not leave a note.
This is not
beautiful.

My freshman year of college
and my roommate was beautiful
and how I wanted to be just like her.
But she wore herself down
till she was
almost invisible
and if you blinked
you had to go and find her all over again.
So now her parents are no longer supporting her college tuition
but are paying her hospital bills
watching their daughter crumble.
This is not
beautiful.

So y’all can take your narcissistic
romanticizing
and glamorizing
of self harm and eating disorders and committing suicide
and shove them as far up your ass
as you possibly can.
Starvation is not beautiful.
Killing yourself is not beautiful.
Sadness
is not beautiful.
This note I am writing
is not beautiful.

But you
you are beautiful
and it’s about damn time you start believing it.

The ultimate problem that many drag performers have is going out into the dating world and finding someone who understands why you do drag and will still find you attractive after finding out that you are a drag queen. Last night for the first time ever I hung out with a guy who met me as a queen first but didn’t have some weird sexual fantasy about me as a queen. He also is interested in me as Donovan, not just Donatella. It was refreshing, he was so sweet and I can sense that something good is going to come from this. I’m happy :)

After watching both leaked episodes of RPDR I’m pretty happy with the results of tonight’s episodes. ;)

What a huge weekend it was for me. I competed in the Western Rockies Shining Star Pageant, my first pageant ever and took home the crown! I am so happy that I got to have this experience. It was truly amazing. Above are pictures of my theme wear (fairytale themed), evening wear, and talent (Roses Turn- Bette Midler)
