A League of Their Own

Taking a break from writing, researching and talking about the politics of compost this weekend, I had a chance to catch the Pride parade in Burlington with my kids.

We waved at some friends, and their kids, and then the best damn float in the parade passed: The League of Drag Queen Voters, a float gussied up by none other than the gals from The House of LeMay.

Now, that's a voting league I want to know more about, I said to myself. Well, the wait is over. Just tonight I heard from Amber LeMay, who sent me a note letting me know about the League. Burlington's Democracy statue never looked put to better use.

Here's the quickie: "With the motto  'Don't blow it, VOTE!' The League of Draq Queen Voters (LDVQ) is out to assure that people understand the importance of their participation in the upcoming fall elections. "With drastic differences in the candidates and parties, it's going to bring the wackos out," says Amber LeMay, founder of the new voter information group.

You had me at "motto," Amber. I offer my services as moderator of any debate you gals want to host. I think the problem would be getting the candidates to find Beaver Pond on a map. Once in town, though, I hear the Hot Damn Trailer Park is easy. To find, that is.
