Embattled Rep. George Santos has claimed that reports and videos documenting him performing in drag are both “outrageous” and “categorically false.” But nearly a dozen years ago, Santos himself appears to have confirmed that he participated in drag shows while he was a teenager living in Brazil.
A Wikipedia page accessed by POLITICO shows a user named Anthony Devolder — a Santos alias — writing that he “startted [sp] his ‘stage’ life at age 17 as an gay night club [sp] DRAG QUEEN and with that won sevral [sp] GAY ‘BEAUTY PAGENTS [sp].’”
The Wiki bio for Anthony Devolder, which is full of spelling and grammatical errors, appears to contain fantastical descriptions of his supposed career in show business. It claims that he had a part in Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” among other examples.

George Santos has claimed that reports of him performing in drag are “categorically false.”

Holy shit. Despite his current denials, it appears George Santos confirmed on a Wikipedia page he was a drag queen.

It’s not Santos being a Brazilian drag queen that’s repugnant, it’s the blatant hypocrisy of Republicans using the LGBTQ community as a punching bag to foment hate while embracing Santos because he’s a lap dog for McCarthy.
