FOF #2680 – Everyone Can Be Everything

Since RuPaul’s Drag Race came on the air a decade ago, the world of drag has changed- the lines between gender, identity and sexuality have all blurred and most drag shows these days welcome anyone. Is TV going to catch up?

Today trans guy, drag queen Sweet Gwendolyn, (aka Debbie Penetration) joins us to take a look at the roller coaster ride drag has gone though in the past decade, and how a lot of ideas from performance art like therapy got folded into the drag soufflé.

Today we’re joined by Peaches Christ, who has been parodying many of these campy films for decades, to discuss why these hunks ran screaming from Hollywood after making only one film.
