    I don't why everyone is missing the obvious.
    They may or not be gay, sexuality isn't connected to being a transvestite.

    Also transgender doesn't imply gay anyway, it just means their gender identity doesn't match their assigned gender.

    Probably because being a drag queen doesn't mean you aren't gay.

    No, you could just as well claim women who wear trousers are mocking "real transgender people".
    That wouldn't make it true either.

    If gay people want gay marriage, drag queens should be able to participate in the parades. This is so backwards I don't even.

    But they feel mocked. I mean, isn't that enough basis for discriminating against a group?

    I also feel insulted and repressed when people insult and demean me for what I choose to self-identify with by making lewd commentary about me. It hurts my feelings when they draw unwanted parallels to other things that conduct themselves similarly, but also in a completely different fashion.
    Honestly, you would probably be quite popular. Though there might not be much left of your attire.

    Exactly. Mistakes can and will happen, and a trans person expects that. If they are offended by an honest simple mistake (e.g. a friend that knew them before transition uses the wrong pronouns or worse their old name), then, honestly, they have the problem. Granted that is for an honest mistake. A malicious misuse is something else entirely.

    It's basically black face.

    There is tons of bad blood between some drags and some trans women; and it is an incredibly complex topic to untangle*. These people simply exacerbated it (on an inclusive parade, no less) for no reason other than stupidity.

    (*): To the uninitiated, think how some feminists see MTF as pervs, and FTM as gender traitors. That's a more well known effect, and it has some overlap with the topic at hand: advocacy groups that have lost their north, or never really had one to begin with.

    Except drag queens are emulating a type of caricature of women, just like drag has done for a very long time. Not to mention that there are drag queens, who also happen to be trangender.

    Okay, how is drag black-face? I mean you do realize drag is nothing new and has existed in many forms throughout history, right?
