the minds of most, so it's necessary to bombard such walls with
battering rams of deviance. A common and simple tactic for chipping away
at the bricks of prejudice is to sport a wardrobe typically associated
with the opposite gender; in other words, cross-dressing. Though most
guys don't have the balls to wear makeup and a dress, some out there do.
One such dude with the proverbial set is Jeffree Star. Star has
been crossing gender boundaries since his early years, playing with his
mom's makeup as a child. Since then, he's become one of the world's most
famous gender benders and, consequently, a huge battering ram (does
that image make you tingle?).
Millions have been following the online activity of the self-proclaimed "Queen of the Internet" since his rise to fame in the mid-'00s. Along with the general ability to stir up a crazed fan base and inspire legions to traverse gender lines, Star's talents include makeup artistry, modeling, and DJing as well as writing, producing, and performing music. South Floridians will have the chance to check out Star and his musical offerings at his upcoming performance at Ground Control (122 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach). Go straight there, wander queerly home. Doors open at 6 p.m., and tickets cost $12. Visit myspace.com/onfirebooking.
