Real Housewives of Atlanta’s newest cast member and hairstylist Lawrence Washington is making some serious fashion statements with his stylish choice of cross-dressing and wearing high heels.
In a recent “20 Questions” with Black Voices, Washington says he likes to identify himself as “Miss Lawrence,” and claims it’s easy expressing himself through cross-dressing.
“I identify myself as Miss Lawrence, and basically I cross-dress. That’s the word for it — I’m a cross-dresser. I don’t do drag. I don’t wear fake boobs or a bunch of hair. I just cross-dress.”
When it comes to him wearing heels, Washington says: “Jot this down; I am the blueprint of the boys of “the cross” in Atlanta. I started this a long time ago. I put on my first pair of pumps when I was going to a Prince concert years ago. I thought it was appropriate, and I never stumbled. And I’ve never fallen or anything – unless I’m dancing and get real full. It just became real natural… I didn’t start butch queens [wearing] pumps, but I would consider myself to be the first person to bring it to the forefront. I can say I was one of the first ones to walk down the street in the middle of the day in Louboutins.”
