Meet President Obama’s ‘Gay Transgender Prostitute Nanny’
The UK’s Daily Mail is running a story this morning featuring what has to be one of the best run-on headlines of all time.
“Revealed: Barack Obama’s gay transgender prostitute nanny who made him laugh by trying on his mother’s lipstick”
What a revelation, indeed!
‘Evie’ cared for the future President she called ‘Barry’ when his mother Ann Dunham moved to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta in the late 1960s.
The openly gay man, who believes he is really a woman, said she would make Obama laugh by trying on his mother’s lipstick.
But she was careful not to let him see her dressed in women’s clothes – even though she often left the house at night in full drag.
Evie’s life story is fascinating and heartbreaking, even if editorialized out the wazoo.
Read how she grew up as a poverty-stricken transgender girl under military rule in Indonesia, how she was forced to stop her education in the third grade to work, and how a chance meal prepared for now-President Obama’s mother led to her employment as his nanny during their family’s stay in the country, and how she ended up back living in the slums.
