This is sure to get a conversation started within the juggalo world. No matter which side you fall on in this discussion, just be respectful to anyone’s opinions.
With that being said, Lette’s Respect, who helps organize and run the Miss Juggalette Pageant has published a statement of support for a potential transgender contestant.
This year, Alexis Macknight has decided to sign up to take part in the 2016 Miss Juggalette Pageant. You can read the full statement of support from Lette’s Respect below.
We here at Lette’s Respect celebrate beautiful “bearded” ladies and unconventional beauty that defies all norms and pushes the boundaries of what is acceptable. It is time to celebrate freedom of expression in all forms, without limitation or exception. Everyone is welcome, one universal family, free 2 be! That is why we believe that this year’s 2016 Miss Juggalette Pageant, a celebration of wild women, reinventing standards of beauty with no bounds with that ever-so-subtle touch of Detroit class, is ready for the amazing, incredible, death-defying presence of a TRUE circus icon–May we present our pledge to support and honor our SISTER, Miss Alexis Macknight aka Burger, in her choice to enlist in the running for the title of the Juggalette Queen 2016! We believe Alexis has the power to take the pageant up to a new level of consciousness and thought. If we are to continue forward in creating a space for universal family without limitation (and lots of laughs and clowning along the way), we can think of no other person to better carry the torch, shed the Carnival Light in the Dark, and move us forward. For that, she gets all our RESPECT in the world. #lettesrespect2016 #realjuggalofamily #allshapessizescolorsandgenders #deezycandar
