What does it mean to be a “Queen” in today’s world?
There are no kingdoms, and no royalty, and most of us don’t come from a royal lineage.
My friends used to refer to me as “Queen D,” and I loved being called this. When I asked them why Queen, I was told it’s because I (appeared to) have my sh*t together. I had a great job, I wore amazing clothes and always presented myself well.
Being a Queen meant, to us, someone who had their sh*t together and had a life that was sorted: great job, perfectly fit and shapely body, property owner, and have loads of money—and have an adoring partner.
Sounds spookily familiar to the stereotypes you see in magazines, TV and movies.
