Tom’s Town Don’t Fuck With Drag Queens: Facebook Backs Off!

Sup David Campos celebrates Facebook's decision not to fuck with drag queens

Tom opens his article this way:

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again — the 11thcommandment is ‘don’t fuck with drag queens.’ Case in point: Facebook’s unprecedented apology for, and commitment to change, its ‘real name’ policy – an apology and reversal that came after a group of local drag queens and community activists launched a crusade against the policy that has existed for years. I have to call this nothing short of a miracle.

Only a few weeks ago this policy was one that largely flew under the radar and had received much less criticism than it deserved. That was until someone decided to fuck with drag queens. As drag queen after drag queen had their profiles flagged for violating the policy they got angry, they organized and they fought back.
