“It’s a Golden Girls special. They’re all wearing the duster.”

No-nonsense comedian and actor Margaret Cho has some strong words for Christians seeking to ban drag shows.

Cho, who has been doing standup for 30 years and recently co-starred in Fire Island, was on The View when she let her opinion about Jesus’ fashion and Christian homophobes be known.

The panel was talking about the rise in anti-drag laws across the country, including Tennessee’s recent law that severely limits public drag performances and gender-related care for trans minors in the state.

"If it's Christians [leading these bills], Christ himself is wearing a long dress and a duster from Chico's," she said. "In the Bible, him and the Apostles all went to Chico's and got the same Bea Arthur sets. It's a Golden Girls special. They're all wearing the duster."

LGBTQ+ celebs have been speaking out constantly about the new bills that have been passed in Tennessee and that are appearing elsewhere. Everyone from famous drag queens, to Elliot Page, Kim Petras, and Hayley Kiyoko have added their voice in support of drag performers and trans youth.

Recently RuPaul, the most famous drag queen in the world, also added his voice to the battle.

“Hey, look over there! A classic distraction technique, distracting us away from the real issues that they were voted into office to focus on: jobs, healthcare, keeping our children safe from harm at their own school. But we know that bullies are incompetent at solving real issues,” he said in a video posted to social media.

“Drag queens are the Marines of the queer movement,” the RuPaul’s Drag Race host continued. “Don’t get it twisted and don’t be distracted: register to vote so we can get these stunt queens out of office and put some smart people with real solutions into government. And by the way, a social media post has never been as powerful as a registered vote.”
