For those catching up, BMC is known Christianly as 47 year-old Vincent Capretta, who during his work hours serves as rector of the Community of Charity, an Independent Old Catholic Church in Columbus, OH. The church is affiliated with a splinter Catholic group that is welcoming of all sorts and sizes - including the LGBT sorts and sizes.

UPDATE: It's come to my attention that Father Capretta is not a Roman Catholic priest. I had tried phoning the Diocese of Columbus to verify this before publishing the story, but a very rude man told me that everyone had gone home and to call back Monday at 8:30. And it turns out that in this case, I was wrong and I'm very happy to be able to say so.
On Thursday news sources around the world were buzzing with the report that the famous drag queen "Big Mama Capretta" was, by day, a Catholic Priest in Ohio. The media, however, is not reporting that the man, Vincent Capretta who also calls himself "Father Anthony", is actually part of an Independent Old Catholic Church not the Roman Catholic Church.
...
Capretta said that he "came out of the closet" in honor of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month proclaimed by President Obama. "It's Big Mama y'all! he stated, "And, I am no longer afraid to come out of the closet as a gay Catholic Priest… " I am enjoying my life being who I am and who God intended me to be! Now let's dance y'all!"
To set the record straight, Capretta is actually listed as rector of the Community of Charity (www.communityofcharity.org), an Independent Old Catholic Church that describes itself as all-inclusive. That definition includes 'sexual orientation'in this group. He is not a part of the Roman Catholic Church and his church is not in communion with the See of Rome. The man, Vincent Capretta, is not a Roman Catholic. He is a member of the schismatic Old Catholic Church.
...
Their clergy can normally be male or female and married or celibate.Some, such as the group which Vincent Capretta belongs to, not only endorse active homosexual practices and the homosexual lifestyle but ordain practicing homosexuals.
... Currently Capretta, performing as "Big Mama Capretta", has a hit single titled "Big Mama's House" that is ranked number 25 on the U.S. Billboard Club Play dance chart. By describing himself generically as a "Catholic priest," he has intentionally positioned himself as an icon of irony regarding the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church regarding human sexuality.
...
Vincent Capretta may be a famous drag queen, he may have a hit single and he may even have ordination in an independent Old Catholic line; but, he is most certainly NOT a Roman Catholic priest.Rather, he is being used by those within a portion of the activist homosexual community to harm the Catholic Church and promote their agenda of cultural revolution.
...
By day, Capretta is none other than Father Anthony (aka Vincent Capretta), a proud practicing Catholic priest from Columbus, Ohio.

(Pictured: (Fr.)Vincent Capretta). Gay Blogs and entertainment sites on the web are gloating with headlines such as, 'Priest Comes Out as Drag Queen with Hit Single' and 'Priest Looks Like a Lady,' again portraying the man as a Roman Catholic priest.Catholic Online will not contribute to the scandal by showing this man in 'drag' as 'Big Mama'.
