A troupe of about fifty assorted drag queens, gays, lesbians and others took the Union Square ice rink by storm yesterday -- all in the midst of the afternoon storminess that included a few minutes of hail. Organizers Beth Amphetamine (pictured here) and Vivvyanne ForeverMore (of Tiara Sensation) hoped this could be a fun and educational experience for the holiday shoppers and families gathered for wintertime skating, and by all accounts a good time was had by all. In fact, one little girl, aged approximately 7, was overheard as she skated by telling her dad, "This is the best day of my whole life!!"
