The last time we had cosplay drag queen Fox E. Kim on the podcast we had such a fun time talking about drugs, we had to have her back on to talk more on the subject – from flakka to crocodile to carfentanil. What are they, why would you take them and how can they kill you?

The Oscars nominations are in and while they aren’t as white as last year, they are still pretty white overall, but at least one gay themed movie made it into the best picture category.

FOF #2442 – Go Honey West

The film, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, ignited a modern style of drag filled with campy, self-deprecating fun and trans inclusivity. It was later turned into a musical which our local Pride Films and Plays is putting it on featuring Honey West, who, as far as we know, is the first trans actor to play the role of Bernadette.

Joining us today is the lovely Honey West, who has been a hit on the cabaret circuit since her debut in her 1990 one-woman show, A Taste of Honey.
