Rep “Christmas Carlos” Smith debuts in Gay Christmas Play


If you happen to be in Central Florida this weekend and are sick of going to see dwarfs and princesses ever time you travel to Orlando, then maybe you should go say hello to Florida state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith (D), aka “Christmas Carlos,” who will be narrating that  timeless Christmas classic play, the “Sleigh Queen.”

According to Rep. Smith, who will serve as the play’s narrator for the Orlando Gay Chorus production of the  “Sleigh Queen,” which is the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. We can only imagine how Rudolph will be spun in this “GAY holiday tale.”

In this video promotion he put out on Twitter (we don’t know what he is really drinking in that mug if you know what I mean), Smith seems elated to have been cast in the role.

So like “Christmas Carlos,” said, “let’s make this the greatest holiday ever” by going out to see the Gay holiday tale.
