10-year-old Desmond’s two holiday looks

10-year-old drag queen Desmond Napoles (aka Desmond is Amazing) is already rubbing elbows with LGBTI celebrities such as RuPaul, James St. James, Tituss Burgess, and more.

Now, the much-loved young queen has some advice for LGBTI youth over the holidays.

His look

In an interview with Mic’s Evan Ross Katz, the drag kid rocks his ‘Ice Queen’ look, complete with a sparkly silver snowflake tiara. The interview features a second holiday look by Desmond, too – a classic red dress with an ivy-and-holly headpiece.

The interview

‘Do you think people should be talking about Donald Trump at the holiday dinner table?’ Katz asks.

‘As long as they’re not talking anything good about him,’ Despond replies.

‘Why do you think it’s important for parents to be supportive of LGBTQ children, kids, youth?’ Katz asks the young queen.

‘If somebody says that it’s not okay to be LGBTQ, then just tell them to pay it no mind because they will not be as jolly and holly as the person who is getting bullied by that person that says it’s not good to be LGBTQ,’ Desmond says. ‘My motto is: “be yourself, always.” So you should always be yourself.’

Desmond is quick to plus his Instagram handle before the interview was even finished.

‘Not bye yet – one more question,’ Katz reminds Desmond with a laugh.

‘Oh, it sounded like the end,’ a confused Desmond says.

‘What confidence advice can you give young people?’

‘Express your inner you because when you express your inner you, it’s much better to deal with negative people.’
