I’m sure you saw last week when New York drag queen/activist Marti Gould Cummings went viral with a video of her performing “Baby Shark” for a toddler at drag brunch. Well, what’s a drag queen to do when she hits social media pay dirt? GO BIGGER, of course. Here she is enlisting some local New York queens like Desmond is Amazing, Lemon, and Jan Sport, (as well as a few of her non-draggy friends) to lip-sync to the now-ubiquitous earworm at the Seaglass Carousel in Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.
Martin explains to NewNowNext:
“The team behind Shade: Queens of NYC and I decided to make a music video for kids with the song and use the video as a way for the grown ups watching to find ways to help LGBTQ youth, so we put in links to the Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBTQ Youth and the Hetrick Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School,”
“The Seaglass Carousel was so gracious to donate their venue to film and I hope people love the video and take the time to share joy and love and help out these two incredible organizations fighting for our young people.”
