I’m doing some marketing work for St. Pete Pride in addition to doing their website. I did a series of ads for them, mostly optimistic and sunny with this one being the exception. We got feedback this week from several “transexual activists” who think the ad is “deeply insulting to transexuals”. Honestly, I don’t get it. This ad features a drag queen…. nothing more. I don’t think it demeans anyone’s sexuality… in fact quite the opposite. I think it’s a strong statement on the transient nature of gender and society’s gender roles. Anywho… call me what you want, just spell my name correctly.

Love and Peace to all
