WATCH: From the series about local drag queens that was canned by The Dallas Morning News

We’re not sure where GLBT Dallas got ahold of this video, but we hear it’s actually been floating around YouTube for some time. Anyhow, it’s a segment that was put together by The Dallas Morning News a few years back, about Jenna Skyy, aka Joe Hoselton.

The video was slated to be part of a DMN project about drag queens in Dallas — artists who are leaders in their community — but for some strange reason the series was abruptly canned by editors.

Hoselton, who’s drag persona was not yet a household name at the time, told us a few minutes ago that he felt the video was “good and thoughtful” and “came from a good place with the journalist,” but it “sucked that DMN never ran it.”

When we asked why the newspaper canned the project, Hoselton said, “[Because] it was about them homosexuals and their immorality. … They didn’t feel it was family friendly. The journalist told me.”

Can you imagine?
