"I won't speak for all liberals, but my goal is for everyone — white, brown, drag queen, soccer mom, cisgender, trans, heterosexual, queer, working class, middle class — to be able to exist as they choose without judgement or fear," she said.
She does not know who her seat-mate was, but hopes she can find her in the midst of all the media attention.
"I hope one day that a picture of a woman in modesty garb sitting next to a colorful drag queen isn't out of the ordinary — that it's every day life for everyone!" she added.
