Yas Queen Pin

Extreme Largeness

€5.00 

The word “yas” actually originated with the queer POC (people of color) community circa the late 1980s, specifically those involved in ball culture.

Balls are underground events often staged by queer POC with prizes awarded to those with the most outrageous costumes and the fiercest “walks” in a variety of categories.

“Yas” was one of many words created by this culture, a typical utterance yelled toward the stage as drag queens performed. It was an exclamation that acted as an encouragement ― a message of support and inclusion. (Huffington Post)
