Meet Shequida!

“You’ve got to vote for me,” opera-singing cross dresser Shequida—a/k/a Gary Hall—urged me at Hiro on Sunday night. Sure thing, girl. But for what—an HX magazine award? A Logo NewNextWhatever trophy shaped like a dildo or something? “No,” the Juilliard grad responded, dryly. “I’m on America’s Got Talent and I’m doing really well on it!” She is??? The major NBC show that’s watched by kazillions of people of all genders??? God, I’ve got to rip myself away from cable news once in a while and watch my old trannie friends become superstars.
