DRAG QUEEN STIRS EXCITEMENT IN MAY PEN
A male cross-dresser (photographed here) who police said was caught in a compromising position in a car with another man early Friday morning, created a lot of chatter in May Pen yesterday as news of the incident spread throughout that town.
The police say they noticed the two involved in a dispute in a Toyota Mark II motorcar parked at a lonely spot near a petrol station along Manchester Avenue.
The police took both persons to the May Pen Police Station where it was discovered that the 'woman' was actually a man dressed in drag.
Police say they suspect that the cross-dresser is a prostitute and had sought to sell his wares to the unsuspecting male customer, who was riding a bicycle on Manchester Avenue when he was approached by the prostitute.
The man was reportedly beside himself with rage upon discovering that he was intimately involved with a man and a heated argument developed.
His suspicions were confirmed when the police inspected a driver's license and voter's ID belonging to the suspected prostitute and discovered that he was in fact a man who hailed from a Gregory Park, St Catherine address.
As news spread like wildfire throughout the town, a large crowd converged on the station to catch a glimpse of the drag queen who was clad in a tight-fitting blouse, jeans shorts, high heeled shoes, loop earrings and a wig.
The cross-dresser sported false eyelashes and neatly shaven eyebrows.
The police say they admonished and discharged both men.
