“Hi everybody, I’m Tina Burner!

TINA BURNER: I just want to say thank you guys so much for nominating me for Metrosource “People We Love.”

It’s an amazing opportunity to be a drag queen and be an outspoken person in the LGBTQIA community.

Now as far as my fellow nominees:

Joey Arias. Oooh, she’s always been amazing. Just a really pillar in the community and I always wondered: What happened to Voldemort after he died?

Sherry Vine. Oooh. God, I love her. She always bitches about not being on a television program. But, I remember her growing up – from Tales from the Crypt!

Lady Bunny. Such a political, outspoken advocate of politics and everything else. She has so much in common with Donald Trump: They both have bad wigs, bad makeup and they both been pissed on by Russian hookers!

Shequida. Oooh She has an alter ego. Her name is Jessie Normous. She’s an overweight opera singer. The only thing bigger than that is, well, her ego.

Ooooh, and Hedda Lettuce. [crickets and wide eyes]

Lypsinka. Oh, she does this amazing thing where she does mixes with phone calls, except the only people that are calling her now is AARP!

All jokes aside, thank you guys so much for nominating me for Metrosource “People We Love,” and I look forward to beating these old bitches.

Because, let’s face it. They’re probably already in bed right now.”
