Who Is Miranda Wright?

Written By: Kenny S September 24, 2010 No Comment

The story of Miranda Wright begins, like so many other fairy tales…

Once upon a time, a non-profit youth organization, advocating for North Texas’ LGBTQA youth, gave itself a unique challenge – to create an internal fundraising opportunity that promoted the social services aspect of the organization’s mission values. Four of the organization’s most unlikely volunteers and staff members to do drag were selected for the challenge and a popular vote by fundraising donation would decide who would be performing in drag during the festivities of pride week. It was by this – and trust, no other reason — Miss Miranda Wright was born on September 16, 2010.

Miranda Wright debuted her first song, Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy”, to cheers so loud nobody could hear the music and was supported with a fierce dance routine performed by the Drag ‘N Dance group for her second number, Britney Spears’ “Circus”.

“I would like to thank Miss Nicole Jacobs for all of her help preparing me for my debut performance as well as the Drag ‘N Dance group of YFT for their wonderfully fierce routine supporting my second number,” Miranda was later quoted, “but this performance was dedicated to the youth of Youth First Texas – most of all the T and Q youth of our LGBTQA spectrum. You can accomplish anything you set your hearts and minds to achieve! If anybody tells you otherwise send them to me…I’ll be more than happy to tell them off for you. While wearing four inch heels, of course.”

Will there be a sequel performance? Or will Miranda Wright remain mysteriously within the hearts of her fans, supporting their self esteem and personal power from within? As of yet, nobody knows…

I have the right to be FIERCE...and so do you!
