Navy Recruiting Drag Queen Video: Responding to trolls on the internet, a member of the United States Navy who goes by the stage name Harpy Daniels and who also performs as a drag queen has said that “haters only hate when you are winning.”

On Wednesday, Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, better known by his stage name Harpy Daniels, posted a video to TikTok in which he addressed a wave of online hatred that had been directed at him and his group this week as a result of the rediscovery of their older videos.

Kelley, who identifies as nonbinary but indicated in the Instagram profile for Harpy Daniels that she uses she/her pronouns, started working as a “digital ambassador” for the United States Navy in the previous year.

In an interview that took place in 2018, Kelley stated that they had joined the Navy in 2016 in order to provide financial support for their drag career, but that they had been successful in combining the two.

Kelley used to put on drag shows for her fellow service members as part of the Navy’s Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) events before she began her career as a digital ambassador.

A spokesperson for the US Navy told Newsweek, “The Navy is proud of and stands by anyone who is willing to take an oath and put their life on the line to defend this country.” Our Navy is stronger when we use all of our different resources, skills, abilities, and talents, just like the country we serve. We still want a place where everyone feels welcome.”

In an interview with Military Times in 2018, Kelley said, “Drag lets me embrace my feminine side and show how different and creative I am. When I put on a face, it’s not just a face of makeup—it’s a face of art and creativity. During a performance, it’s a thrill to hear people cheer, laugh, cry, or even join in.
