Gay shock face you’ll make for codpiece, fishnet

Add this share

With the superstorm of drag that hit Atlanta in recent days, you’ve got to wonder if all the drag kings, queens and gender-bending performance artists still evoke a reaction. They do. This photo of a gay’s open mouth shock face proves it.

That’s Princess Vanessa performing at the Dragnificent finale on Wednesday. There’s nothing quite like a man dressed as a woman performing in fishnet, harness and codpiece that looks ready to spill its contents. Then there’s the young gay, mouth agape, considering what’s a few feet from his face and wondering what might happen if that fishnet doesn’t hold and what’s supposed to stay tucked comes undone.

Or maybe he’s just yawning. Probably not.
