“It’s a crazy day in Washington! I’m flipping my wig over the high-energy proceedings today,” Myles said in an interview with NBC News. “Tensions are high, and the bar for who’s allowed in the Longworth House is very, very low.”
According to Myles’s personal Facebook, she is in Washington to cover the hearing with Happs, an open-source live news network.
“Check us out on the app — i’ll be commenting on what’s going on, and probably causing a ruckus in day drag,” she posted, accompanied by cry-laughing emoji.
Myles wasn’t too far off: Several pictures of the drag queen — and appropriately snarky tweets — quickly took off on social media.
The inspiration for Myles’s stage name also chimed in: Actress Missi Pyle tweeted her support for the incredibly “well named” performer.
When not covering Capitol Hill, Myles holds the title of Miss Fish NYC 2014, a pageant to find the “fishiest” queen in the city (a term for when a drag artist looks very feminine). She is also the winner of Cycle 4 of Mimi Imfurst’s Philly Drag Wars, a 13-week competition in the style of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Myles has produced successful comedy shows and, in 2017, she wrote and starred in “Babashook,” a parody music video about “The Babadook” being a gay icon.
Now, it seems she can add “congressional correspondent” to her résumé.
