Courtney Act talks about Ann Widdecombe row on CBB


The drag star who had numerous verbal confrontations with the homophobic politician says that she (Act identifies as gender-fluid, and uses female pronouns when in drag) would not survive in the CBB house if she did not learn to control her spirit via meditation. Act, who identifies as pansexual, says meditation helped her live alongside fellow contestant Ann Widdecombe, who repeatedly voted against LGBT+ rights as a Conservative minister and shadow home secretary. Act says learning to meditate helped her become more patient while living in close quarters with those who have opinions quite opposite to hers. She told HuffPost: “It’s so easy to be polarized and yell from different sides of the room about certain subjects, but I think it’s so much better to walk into the middle and have a conversation to drive change forward. It’s very easy to not be patient, especially when it’s not just people’s ideas, but you’re living with someone like Ann and her voting record over the course of 23 years”
