Does Mykki Blanco use female pronouns?[edit]

As far as I know, Blanco identifies as a gay man. Can someone provide a source on what pronouns Blanco prefers? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.116.23.99 (talk) 22:29, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Good question. It appears that the stage character is "she" and the artist is "he" according to this interview: http://www.ssense.com/editorial/mykki-blanco#/7. I'll ask Project:LGBT to weigh in. EvergreenFir (talk) 02:20, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Blanco identifies as a gay man, yes. Not as a woman. He uses a feminine persona as part of a sort of drag act. He says he is a transvestite and not transgender. So I think saying "she" when referring to Michael Quattlebaum Jr., especially during earlier parts of his life, makes no sense. I'll try to change the pronouns to make them a bit more appropriate and consistent.

Thanks for your edit. As far as I can tell, you are correct about the pronouns. EvergreenFir (talk) 02:42, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
