Note from the author: It is sickening and devastating to hear this kind of behavior occurring at any time but especially when it is originating within our community. The LGBT+ community as well as the sex working industry is continuously dealt with blows from conservative and political communities that are always attacking our freedom of expression with accusations of predatory actions especially towards children. Drag queen shows have become a target of many establishments throughout the US and actions like this only prompt more hatred and speculation towards innocent members of our community. Wolf’s actions certainly do not reflect the views and lives of the LGBT+ community, the sex working industry and everyone here at Muscle Service.
