Drag queen taking on 2-term Jim Moody in HD 120

by The 100 Companies

Michael Elgin Travis, who performs as “Erika Rose” in Key West, has filed to challenge Republican incumbent Rep. Jim Mooney in Monroe County’s House District 120, potentially becoming the first such performer elected.

This past Session that saw a slew of anti-LGBTQ laws passed was his inspiration for running, particularly SB 1438 that criminalizes allowing children into live shows with “lewd” content.

The Democrat, also a bartender and tour guide, said he’s willing to take on a two-term incumbent.

“Either way, I win,” he said. “I’ll either win the election or inspire others and let them know they are valued.”
