STORYTIME OF the oRIGIN of drag persona of ‘Leviticus Christmas’ - back when i was a working young queer at the local goodwill , I was blue buzzed baby, my head a beacon for the conservative population of Illinois. On one fated night shift, a couple approached me at check out counter, baby and a manger cart, a casual formal greeting expressed. The manger quickly zoomed onto the counter with a joke about Jesus, which i met with laughter, as while I am spiritual and respect religion, simultaneously- the repercussions of Christian imperialism and influence globally, socially, and economically, is so horrible that I believed it warranted a chuckle. The couple, with a bit of mischief and severity in their eyes, gazing at my bald blue head and sparkling eyeshadow, to them an alert of the rare faggot in their stratosphere , laughed and said “but we actually love God, and we named our son Leviticus after the most important part of the Bible- wouldn’t you agree?” As i politely smiled and said nothing, I gazed into the young masc child’s hopeful eyes, and prayed to all spirituality that they would grow up to be the greatest gay on this planet. As the couple parted on their path of casual shitty commentary for an ego boost, I realized that they had given me the gift of a new moniker, a new legacy, and thus the concept of Leviticus Christmas was born upon this planet. A crossover episode, dare I say haha. EXPRESSION IS A GIFT! YOUR RAW HUMAN VULNERABLE PRESENTATION OF YOURSELF THROUGH EXPRESSION, VISUAL, VERBAL, ETC- IS A GIFT! MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL YEAR ROUND BITCH! ALRIGHT! I MEAN THAT. ALL THE BS PROJECTION OF PEOPLE NOT ALLOWING THEMSELVES TO EXPRESS THEIRSELF THAT THEY TRY TO PUT ONTO YOU. GOODBYE TO THAT. BECAUSE YOU BEING YOURSELF? YOU KNOW WHAT THAT DOES- IT ALLOWS OTHERS TO DO THE SAME. THAT IS REVOLUTIONARY. HELL HATH NO POWER LIKE A FEMME, OR ANY OTHER BBY FOR THAT MATTER, AWARE OF THE MAGNITUDE OF THEIR EXISTENCE. YOU ARE SO BIG. YOU DESERVE TO LIVE IN WHATEVER FACET YOU SEE. CHASE THAT. HOW ABSOLUTELY POWERFUL IS THAT. LIVING TRUTHFULLY, IN ALL MAGNITUDES AND QUANTIFICATIONS. QUEER FOLK, YOUR COMMUNITY IS ROOTING FOR YOU. OKAY.
