Here’s What Happened When Milo Yiannopoulos Went to a Drag Show in NYC
What happens when Milo Yiannopoulos walks into a drag restaurant in New York City?
The alt-right asshat made an appearance at Lips, a drag restaurant in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He brought some groupies, including former Advocate editor Chadwick Moore, Gavin McInnes and Pamela Gellar. Geller is a proud Islamophobe who says her attacks on Muslims are volleys in “the war between the civilized man and the savage.”
Gusty Winds, a performer at Lips, detailed the experience on her Facebook, explaining that Gellar, like some other bachelorette girls who attend drag shows, got drunk and climbed onstage at the end of the show.
She said “This is wrong, this is disgusting, we need a conversation.” Her hate mongering speech was drowned out by the customers. In this country you have the right to say what you want, however gross and disgusting that it is. What you don’t have the right to do is come in to a place where all are welcome and because you’re not getting your hateful ego stroked.
Next, Winds applauded the queens and staff for their professionalism throughout the night, dealing with the group of alt-right fame whores:
Every single Lips girl and our Charlie, regardless of their own views, treated them as they should, as our guests. I’m so very proud of all of them, for their absolute stellar behavior and restraint. To paraphrase the Obamas, “When they go low , we go high,” and to also paraphrase Glinda the Good Witch, “Be off with you, you have no power here.”
After a blog reported the incident, and called Lips “popular,” Yiannopoulos commented:
“Popular”? We got a reservation with four hours’ notice! Pamela, who has even more gay fans than I do, was commenting on the appropriation of gay culture for the enjoyment of fat bachelorettes who want to watch a freak show while feeling good about sucking up to gays. We went for a good time but ended up depressed at the boring, diluted, circus-like version of gay culture at this “gay-themed” bar, repackaged for the unfashionable and unthinking herd of hen night wildebeests. I hope NYC has more to offer than this.
We’re sure Yiannopoulos acted like the disgusting pig he is, however he does have a point. Lips is a little bit like the Applebees of gay culture, and honestly, gay locals don’t go there. It’s full of bachelorette parties who are gawking at drag queens.
NYC does have more to offer than that. However, we dare Yiannopoulos to go to a real gay bar to see a drag show. There, he’ll probably get kicked out onto the curb where he belongs.

This ones a doozy kids : last night at Lips, Milo Yiannoplis and Pamela Geller came in for dinner. They sat with two other friends , stayed , ate and watched the entire show. Pamela cheered and clapped and got drunk and at the end of the show jumped on stage and Said “this is wrong , this is disgusting we need a conversation. “ Her hate mongering speech was drowned out by the customers. In this country you have the right to say what you want, however gross and disgusting that it is. What you don’t have the right to do is come in to a place where all are welcome and because you’re not getting your hateful ego stroked ( let’s face it how many bachelorettes know who the fuck you are ), you don’t have the right to rob other people of their right to a good time. My thinking is that they came there to cause a commotion and when they didn’t it they had to make one. Every single Lips girl and our Charlie , regardless of their own views treated them as they should , as our guests. I’m so very proud of all of them, for their absolute stellar behavior and restraint. To paraphrase the obamas “ when they go low , we go high” and to also paraphrase Glinda the good witch “ Be off with you , you have no power here”. It’s easy to get angry and engage , there is a time and a place for it , the place was not Lips last night. So to the staff Last night I say this : I take my wig off to you, it was an honor to serve (literally ) in the trenches last. Xxoo Gusty.
