The Hill reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was met by an eager crowd chanting her name when she attended a drag show in New York. “You are beautiful. You are accepted,” the freshman lawmaker told the audience at Bartschland Follies, a drag and burlesque show at the McKittrick Hotel.
Ocasio-Cortez appeared alongside performer Joey Arias, who shared footage of the two onstage on Instagram. “Alexandria O.Cortez and myself at BARTSCHLAND FOLLIES! I was gagging ! She’s Amaxing ! The place went wild ! Chanting her name!” the artist shared.

The inspiring and formidable @ocasio2018 attended the @bartschland Follies show @themckittrick last night in NYC. She brought hope to the room and showed us 🇺🇸 future! Her choice words, “Be who you are. You are beautiful. You are accepted.” 🏳️🌈 In this pix, I’m saying, “I’m standing next to a future president!” The 2nd pix, I’m thanking her for her work, speaking out, and fighting the good fight. #aoc #4thofjuly #resist #showbiz
