Democratic debates: Drag Queen Pissi Myles quizzes Kamala Harris

The New York City drag Queen who attended an impeachment hearing on Capitol Hill last week traveled to Atlanta Wednesday for the Democratic debate and managed to eek out a question to one of the candidates during a media scrum.

Pissi Myles — wearing a sequin dress, a huge blonde wig and jewels — joined the gaggle of reporters after the debate and asked Sen. Kamala Harris about Transgender Day of Remembrance, which she said was observed Wednesday.

“I have a long history of working on this. And to your point today, black trans women are under attack,” Harris told Myles, who was reporting for HappsNews.

“They are being hunted. And we’ve got to address this in very real way,” she added.

Myles told the Post that she’s been working as a political reporter for HappsNews since the political director of the media start-up discovered her at a bar in New York and offered her the job.

Last Wednesday, the award-winning performer was spotted stalking the halls of the Longworth building in a red latex dress and giant blonde wig to cover the hearings.

“It was a lot of fun but it was very serious,” said Myles, 31, whose character is a riff on the actress Missi Pyle.
