Update: Here’s the commercial!
See Calpernia as one of the new Faces of Facebook in their national commercial for Facebook Home!
The video was originally leaked and introduced by Mark Zuckerberg himself here:
If you peek about 28 minutes 41 seconds into Mark Zuckerberg’s LiveStream announcement of the new Facebook Home software, you might just see a familiar face or two. Yours truly, America’s Transsexual Sweetheart Calpernia Addams and Drag Queen Superstar Shangela of RuPaul’s Drag Race appear over the shoulder of the male lead. I have the pleasure of singing “After You Get What You Want”, a Jazz classic, to him over his shoulder as Shangela bursts forth from a beverage cart. Is Facebook’s featuring of trans and drag entertainers in a national commercial a first for the company? Let’s hope the inclusiveness continues!
