“Vampire Drag Queen”

In the fall of 2009, I got the idea of mashing up two popular things: vampires and drag queens. I wrote the song and quickly put together a plan to release it on iTunes and film a fun music video for YouTube. The video and a making of video are below.

pride 2020

For its 10th anniversary, I’ve given this song a makeover. I wrote it during the fight for marriage equality, yet the song still resonates given the actions and goals of the current administration. This July, I celebrate 10 years of marriage with the man this song is about. No one can take that away from us.
