There was an immediate backlash of hilarity in my Twitter feed at least, with the general sentiment ranging from “Yup!” to my own sense of “Future? This is the present, and I’m fine with that.” Mediaite tracked down Gilda Wabbit, the drag queen in the photo, for a fabulous comment:

I’d like to see a future where it isn’t a big deal for a woman in full modesty garb to sit next to a drag queen in NYC. It’s become a bit of a sensation, but her and I were just existing. The freedom to simply be yourself in a sea of people who aren’t like you is a freedom we all deserve.
