I was so eager to announce that I will be writing posts for GayRVA that I couldn’t wait until this weekend’s VA PrideFest to come out; I just had to introduce myself a little early.
I am probably the most unnecessarily controversial twenty-something columnist due to my lack of most forms of social filters, my Bratz Doll® like features, my fierce admiration of drag queens and my secret crush for really hot lesbians who also love makeup, stilettos, and cute fashions.
I say this all because I am a married mother and a self-proclaimed “diva” with a strong desire not to be like anyone else. It all sounds crazy, but I wouldn’t be any fun if I didn’t.

Anyway, this will be my first time attending the VA PrideFest and I can honestly say I’m extremely excited. I want to see all the entertainment, check out all the vendors, and support everyone in the LGBT community. I will be taking pictures of some of the hottest fashion finds at the festival, and giving my opinion on the stylish and chic and the seriously severe. I might also be on a personal quest of my own, but I’ll get into that later (wink).
