In The News
Well known recording artist, drag queen and kind of scary entertainer Kevin Aviance was beaten in the street after leaving The Phoenix sometime after 1:30am Friday night. Police have already arrested three men in connection with the case, and are investigating it as a possible bias crime. Ya' THINK? Anti-gay slurs were shouted before and during the attack. Kevin suffered a broken jaw, and is currently recovering right around the corner in a hospital down the street from here. No word yet if he suffered injuries to his Din Da Da.
Even more shocking, this was the lead story in tonights Eyewitness News report. I have to say, it was kind of surprising having a queen anchor the news and lead with the beating of a drag queen. Where they actually use the words drag queen.
