Atlanta queen rips Facebook ‘real names’ in song

Add this share

As drag queens and queer performers fight Facebook's real name policy, glitzy Atlanta performer Brigitte Bidet offers up a call to arms with a sassy riff on “That's Not My Name.”

Bidet posted “WTF, Zuck?” on Tuesday as drag queens, queer performers and more work to convince the social media giant to drop its push for real, not stage, names in profiles. In recent days, the change locked drag queens in Atlanta and across the country out of Facebook until they changed their profile to reflect their legal names.

Bidet, one of the baddest bitches on Edgewood Avenue, wants queens to rise up. So she and her Legendary Children cohorts cut the video, set to the song from the Ting Tings.
