House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be making another appearance on a show that is about cross dressing.
Pelosi will appear on a new season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” — she previously appeared on the program several years ago as well.
“Can I get an amen?” Pelosi can be seen saying in a clip advertising the show’s upcoming season.

In 2018, the Hollywood Reporter posed the question to Pelosi: “What could politicians learn from drag queens?”
“Authenticity,” Pelosi answered. “Taking pride in who you are. Knowing your power — that’s what I talk about on my brief segment on the show. This idea of people believing in themselves, being themselves, taking pride in themselves, is not just a lesson for politicians but for everyone in the country. And that’s why I was so excited and couldn’t resist being on the show.”
During that interview, the outlet also asked the lawmaker whether she had ever considered what her drag name would be, but Pelosi said that she had not.
The California Democrat has served in Congress for more than three decades and holds the distinction of being the first and only woman ever to serve as the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
U.S. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney recently tweeted support for Drag Queen Story Hour, a program that involves cross dressers reading books to children.
“Across the country, books are being banned, which are depriving our nation’s youth. But thanks to @NYPL and programs like Draq Queen story hour, NYC’s next generation are getting a well rounded education about LGBTQ+ issues and gender identity,” Maloney tweeted.
Critics pounced on the congresswoman’s post, but she remained unfazed, declaring that “the bigots are at it again in the comments.”
