Happy Birthday, Miss Understood

In 1969, Drag Queens at a Greenwich Village bar called The Stonewall Inn threw a riot that sparked the modern LGBT civil rights movement. This month, Drag Queens at The Stonewall threw a riotous birthday bash for infamous and colorful sister diva, Miss Understood. “Miss U,” as she is called by her friends, has been a fierce Drag performer for over a decade and is the proprietor of Screaming Queens Drag and entertainment agency. Queens, friends and admirers came from near and far to sink their teeth into a piece of understandable birthday cake! Sweetie is the MC of the weekly show called Riot and the performances that took place that evening were a delightful demonstration that was so over-the-rainbow!! Joe Birdsong of Capture CafĂ© danced in a number with Miss Understood that had his pants sliding down to reveal a little too much. Seen: Daniel Nardicio (The D List), James Coppola (Hot Mess), Trina Rose (Modern Gypsy) and Drag Divas Zondra Fox, Madelyn Madelaine, Manila Luzon, Cathy Valdez, Iggy, Olivia Satine and others.
