Drag artist Panti Bliss shared her plans to run for the Presidential post in Ireland. Panti Bliss, real name Rory O’Neill, has since become a household name in Ireland, belonging to those celebrities who speak openly about LGBT rights in general and equal marriage in part.
Bliss told Irish Central “I jokingly have said I would be quite good with the Irish presidency because I make a decent speech and Panti poses pretty well for pictures I suppose you would get two people for the price of one. My life is an open book. All of the worst things I’ve ever done are all out there. There are no skeletons left in my closet. People mention a presidential run half jokingly to me… and yet there was a time when our political parties were coming to me but I had no interest.”
