Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress. And, look, sometimes she just wants to be a 29-year-old.
Last weekend, she and her friends attended the Bartschland Follies, a drag/burlesque extravaganza held every Friday night at The McKittrick Hotel.
At the end of the show, AOC, who is an avid fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, was called up on stage by performer Joey Arias where she told the audience: “You are beautiful! You are accepted!”
Arias shared video of the moment with his 15K Instagram followers, along with the caption: “Alexandria O. Cortez and myself at BARTSCHLAND FOLLIES! I was gagging! She’s Amaxing! The place went wild! Chanting her name!”
Afterwards, AOC went around the bar and posed for pictures with audience members and performers.
