Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared a video of a drag queen roundtable that she says will "push society forward."
"Electoralism has limits," she wrote. "Elected officials often don’t lead our most impactful societal changes, they follow them. The heroes who lead true change are the activists, artists, organizers & others who educate + push society forward."
"People think Congress and government is all about leading people, but ultimately, a lot of our politics is about following the public will. The people who change the way people think are artists and drag queens, and let's not forget who threw that first brick at Stonewall," she said. "It starts with you, I mean, you're patriots, you are, you are, you are patriots, and I'm so proud of you all, and I'm so proud to live in this country with you."
