DO YOU SEE THE WORLD
IN A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE?
Meet the one and only
Michael WayNe Timmons
When I was a child, I always felt that tie between being a "tom-girl" and as some of my family would say a "spoiled brat". When I use the term "spoiled brat" I don't mean the type that has everything she ever wanted just handed to her, but more along the line of being treated like an only child but at the same time having siblings that were old enough to be my own parents so they already learned what is worth their stress. The adventures we would go on and the things we would do as a family, I am extremely grateful to have been raised the way I was for multiple reasons.
In my early years discovering who I was it always entailed with me being fascinated about the opposite counter part. But at the same time there was always a question about the woman body itself. From time to time I would love to impersonate a male for fun, it made me happy discovering that I could transform into that counter part that I was fascinated about. Would I want to go through the full transformation? Honestly, no unless my partner did too but even then my heart goes out to those who make it fully! It's no easy battle, but you have to do what makes you happy fully!
Looking back I still remember the first time I was at Disney during "Gay Day" as a child, my mom was trying to explain about how it doesn't matter who you love to me since it was the first time I had ever seen same sex couples in an impactful and positive way. From that point on, specially living in a small town, I never questioned it; just seeing someone love someone because it makes both of them happy was enough.
Over the years I have discovered who I am as a person; a woman who loves men sexually but loves all bodies and spirits attached. Just because I've decided this is who I am doesn't mean that I don't respect others and their choices. I have family, friends, & clients that are part of the LGBTQ+ community. I support them in whichever way possible! It breaks my heart how there are youth being disowned from their families to this day in 2021.
For those who know me, know that when an opportunity presents itself, I make the most out of it! This has honestly always beens something I would love to do specially while helping raise money for those in need.
About the Canna-King himself:
Michael Wayne Timmons the Canna-King is officially here! On the 19th of June he will be performing to "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" to help raise money for the displaced LGBTQ+ youth in our local community via the Toke n' Drag Benefit Show along with some other amazing, talented, performers in the community.
He got his name 30 years ago but life had other plans when a little girl with the initials of KAT was born instead. Little did everyone know that Michael Wayne was still there just waiting for the right moment to come out and sing his heart away!
Watch out Snoop! This Canna-King can roll and smoke you out, same with his counterpart.
"I cannot do all the good the world needs. But the world needs all the good I can do."
Even though I have not been personally affected by my choice of how I identify myself or who I choose to love, it doesn't mean I haven't been affected knowing that the world is not fully educated. I am here to help your voice reach the ends of the universe, it's been time to stop the hate and just educate.
Drag or "Male" & "Female" Impersonators have been entertaining the world since the 1800's at least.
Humans have been making love to who they want to since the beginning of times. Only so much of that time has been spent making others feel as though it's been "wrong" when it's only human nature.
