The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Pitt County, North Carolina hosted the PRIDE event on June 26 at the Greenville, N.C. Town Common where there were several LGBTQ tables set up with free Pride merchandise, drag performances, food trucks as well as lots of love, support and pride.
Miguel Cornell, one of the drag queens who performed as Freddie Mercury from the rock band Queen and sang ‘Somebody to Love’ as well as ‘Where Are We Now’ from the rock-pop singer David Bowie, said he got into drag performances as a way of self-expression.
Anita Newhole, another Drag performer at the PRIDE event at Town Common, performed ‘I Will Survive’ by Gloria Gayner and ‘Born This Way’ by Lady Gaga. They said it was their first time debuting as a Drag Queen. They said they felt constant love and support by everyone at the event.
“I mean the fact that not everyone has that (love and support) in their life is the reason you should give it even more,” Newhole said.
