Drenched in neon light, about 300 men packed into the grimy Lai Lai Dance Hall in the Northeastern part of Shanghai—but even in the crowd, it was impossible to miss Alysa.
The petite drag queen strutted to the middle of the floor in a pin-straight pink wig, a strapless wedding gown and a pair of elbow-length white gloves.
She grabbed a microphone and belted out a Chinese pop song in honor of Father’s Day as middle-aged men in the audience catcalled and threw 100 RMB ($15) notes at her.
