The LGBT zeitgeist comes for everything—the schools, the HR departments, and now even your cheesy fiesta potatoes and 1/2 pound beef and potato burritos:
As drag brunch came to a close at a Mexican restaurant here last Sunday, the performers conga-lined their way through the crowd of about 40 party people who were just this side of tipsy on Brunch Punch.
But this was no standard drag brunch; it was a Taco Bell Drag Brunch. And that wasn't a microphone in the lead queen's hand; it was a Grande Toasted Breakfast Burrito. That queen — a Mexican American performer called Kay Sedia (pronounced quesadilla) — was the M.C. at a Taco Bell Cantina down the block from Wrigley Field, wearing a frilly, skintight frock with the Taco Bell logo on the belly.
"Kay Sedia." Look... I mean...
I know I've said this before, but: aren't we all just a little tired of the pun gags? I know I am. Come on people.
Anyway, yes, Taco Bell will be using these events as a front for an LGBT group that targets young children:
"What started nearly twelve years ago as an effort to provide hope and encouragement to young LGBTQ+ people has become a global movement to uplift and empower queer youth before they're in crisis," said Brian Wenke, Executive Director of the It Gets Better Project. "We are beyond excited to partner with Taco Bell and the Taco Bell Foundation to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community through the Drag Brunch experience and to collaborate on programming designed to engage LGBTQ+ youth around their career aspirations and future potential."
Kinda makes you think twice about the ol' Bell, eh?
I mean to be honest Taco Bell is repulsive anyway but this is an even better excuse not to go there.
