It’s 90 Degrees—Perfect for a Rabbit Fur Hat

I could definitely relate to today’s New York’s Times article about Hasidic Jews having to cope with summer heat while wearing uncomfortable garb.

Hot looks for summer!

According to the article: “Hasidic men wear dark three-piece suits crowned by black hats made of rabbit fur, and Hasidic women outfit themselves in long-sleeved blouses and nearly ankle-length skirts.”

As a drag queen, my appearance is a little more, uh, slutty—but I’m still stuck wearing tight undergarments, pantyhose, wigs and thickly applied makeup.  Just like the Hasids, I shvitz!

Hasids dress the way they do to honor God (whatever that means), I do it because I’m a masochist!  We’re all meshugeh!
