Record company Medalist Entertainment, which is promoting a new CD of drag queen favorites called Dancing Queens, has asked New York mayor Rudy Giuliani for permission to place larger-than-life drag queen statues on street corners throughout the city, the New York Daily News reports. The idea is similar to a campaign that placed painted cow statues throughout the city last summer. David Brinker, general manager of Medalist, said the drag queen statues would be out the month of June, in conjunction with gay pride, and then would be auctioned off, with proceeds going to AIDS charities. We believe drag to be a part of the cultural melting pot of New York, Brinker wrote in his letter to the mayor. There has been no immediate response from city hall.
