PHILADELPHIA: "Drag Brigade" to March In Mummer's New Year's Day Parade
Philadelphia drag star Ian Morrison, a.k.a Ms. Brittany Lynn, and her Drag Mafia will be the first “Drag Brigade” to ever march in the Philadelphia Mummer’s Day Parade on New Year’s Day. James Julia, President of the Mummers Brigade Association, and Rocco Gallelli the current Mummers Board President, asked Morrison and his Drag Mafia to lead the String Bands in the parade down Philadelphia’s Broad Street. The group will march from Washington Avenue to City Hall before departing the parade to join the Fancy Brigades at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.The parade is divided into five divisions: Comics, Wench Brigades, Fancies, String Bands, and Fancy Brigades. The reaction to this news should prove amusing.
