What’s a drag queen doing at impeachment proceedings?
It’s a question many people are asking after the performer, believed to be Pissi Myles, was spotted on Capitol Hill.
NBC correspondent Heidi Przybyla snapped a picture of Myles outside of the hearings.
“Someone did ask me last night if there’s anything in DC that surprises me anymore,” she captioned a photo on Twitter.
The Daily Mail also snapped a pic of the performer and said she was wandering through the Longworth House Office Building while media awaited the arrival of two witnesses to the House Intelligence Committee.
Myles was identified in comments on Przybyla’s feed. But there’s still no explanation what she was doing on the Hill.
The New Jersey drag comedian, singer, and hostess has performed at Wigstock, been voted Best Drag Hostess in Philadelphia at the Beacon Light Awards, and appeared on RuPaul’s podcast What’s the T, according to an official biography.
Earlier this year, Myles gave an interview to Instinct in which she declined to make comments that were too overtly political.
“Honestly, the thing that makes me the saddest is seeing our community lose its focus,” she said. “We attack each other over everything, forgetting that there are people who actually hate us and want to see us fail. I wish our community would loosen up a little."
And she also celebrated drag activists of the past.
“There are people who have fought and died through oppression, violence, illness, and legislation for the rights we have, and Pride honors their hard work and furthers it," Myles said. "Whether it's Marsha P. Johnson or Harvey Milk, Cleve Jones, Larry Kramer … even people like Lady Bunny!"
"Go out and learn your history!” Myles continued.
