You many know Patti, but do you know Pat? In a town where his drag persona takes center stage, Pat Patterson talks about life growing up in a small, conservative enclave and the path paved by politicians that bred in him a desire to serve.

The resident drag queen of Dudley's on Ann steps aside for this one-on-one interview with the man behind by the makeup.
