Today, Robert O’Hara joins us top chat about his play, “Bootycandy,” the impact of Obama’s presidency, and how it’s Tyler Perry’s world and we are just living in it.

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.

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.
