If you were looking for something to be grossed out by, then this is it. Here's a 10-year-old drag queen boy being photographed next to an adult drag queen who is naked. He's a Canadian boy who goes by the name Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden and someone thought it was acceptable to put him next to a naked adult male drag queen and think in a photoshoot for Huck Magazine, which was absolutely nasty. The article was about the life of the boy named Nemis, whose drag queen name is "Queen Lactatia" and the photographer's name is Jonathan Frederick Turton.
The naked drag queen adult male next to the boy is named Violet Chachki and he won "RuPaul's Drag Race" in season 7. The much older Violet is fully naked except for a little cloth to cover his genitals.
Turton apparently interviewed and photographed Queen Lactatia for Huck Magazine and talked to the boy about his life as a drag queen. Daily Wire reported, that...
Turton, according to his website, "is a multi-media content producer with specialisms in photography, videography and journalism." He claims to have shot for mainstream outlets and businesses like the BBC, Adidas, Dazed and Confused Magazine, and The Discovery Channel.
In the jarring Huck Magazine piece — which ironically bashes Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro for calling out parents for over-sexualizing their "drag kids" — Nemis' mother, Jessica Melancon, conceded that drag has a sexual component and is unapologetic about her young son wearing sexually suggestive clothing if it "makes him feel beautiful."
“Drag is an adult arena and that’s where people question our judgement,” concedes Jessica. “So we have to censor things. He knows there are adult aspects of drag that he’s not allowed to apply to his show.”
“We would never try to overtly sexualise our child. But if he wears something that makes him feel beautiful, what right do I have to stop him wearing that dress because it might cause people to think things they shouldn’t be thinking? It’s a circular problem.”
Mom says this is how her son likes to play and express himself. She also says "there is so much more going on in the world right now which is more horrifying and terrifying than my child wearing fancy shoes and a skirt. This shouldn’t be on anyone’s list of priorities."
It seems like mom is finally getting all the attention she ever wanted at the expense of her kid. Did mom put her kid into this lifestyle?
After doing some research on the photographer, it appears that they have deleted their social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram.
