Church Street Freaks (Out)

drag.JPG Tonight, in All Hallow’s Eve tradition, Church Street will be blocked off from 5pm to 11pm, Alexander to Wellesley so that aspiring and professional Drag Queens can drag. The blocked traffic usually runs later because the tourists that come to view the aforementioned drag queens inevitably keep it closed until the bars let out. Church Street fills up with the best outfits ranging from clever (The Sock Monkey/Sea Monkey couple always amaze me with their craft work), shocking (Madonna with Baby on a chord were popular a few years back, expect Steve Irwin to be done to death), to mostly funny outfits (the massive headed Jack Layton outfit spoke volumes last year). And remember, just throwing on a boa and a bobbley headband doesn’t count as a costume. But it’s a start.
