Grace Towers is a well-known gender-bender bearded lady queen who breaks the barriers down between masculinity and femininity. By day Towers is a dancer and choreographer and at night she delivers performances as Grace Towers, who usually has a slew of backup dancers that she teaches the choreography to. Only being in the game for just over three years, Towers has become almost a household name in the drag scene. She likes to refer to her look as a gender-bending androgyny look. Towers is not just a new queen on the block, she is different from the other queens on the scene. Much like many drag queens, in drag there is a confidence about Towers, but when she’s out of drag there is a more reserve and shy personality who is highly devoted to dance. Anthony Diaz, the alter ego of Grace Towers, is a professional dancer with the Jean Isaacs’ San Diego Dance Theater. Earlier this year, Circle Circle dot dot, a San Diego theater company produced and staged a play about the life and story of Diaz becoming Grace Towers. Entitled, “Deconstruction of a Drag Queen”, set in a drag bar inspired and provoked by Lips San Diego, which is exactly where Grace Towers got her start in the drag scene and her drag career. The show was written by on of the theater company’s founders, Katherine Harroff. The bearded lady movement has been rapidly growing in the past couple of years. We will say this, if RuPaul ever announces the need for a bearded lady to become a cast member on Rupaul’s Drag Race, our first bet will be Grace Towers.
It’s more disturbing with the USB cable plugged in.

Be the villain you were born to be. Stop waiting for someone to come along and corrupt you. Succumb to the darkness yourself.
This is surprisingly motivating.
can she just get an award or something
I reblog this whenever it pops up on my dash.
So many directions she could have gone with this joke…out of infinite possibilities…she picked the best possible direction.
You just answered your own question. Because homosexuality isn’t considered “normal”, it’s a trait that singles us out. But rather than letting ourselves feel ashamed, we turn that trait into a point of pride. And we should be proud, because being open in the face of bigotry and idiocy takes courage, whereas being openly “normal” does not. Not to mention that visibility is important. When people are openly LGBT, it helps give faces to the issue of equal rights. These are the people who are denied many legal rights and protections in most of the world.
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.
