Dolly Parton once said “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.” People think theatrical make-up, hair and costume must be expensive to look good, but it’s certainly not the case.

Our guest today, Shea Coulee, describes herself as a little bit bougie and a little bit banjee. Either way, she’s 100% fierce. Listen as Shea joins us to take a look at tips on saving money for queens and anyone else who wants to look like a million bucks.


  1. Great show! Fausto, I think having black gay youth on Halsted follow the model of Japanese Harajuku teens and dress outrageously to get money from tourists is a terrible idea! Christina B. Hanhardt has written very insightfully about the marginalization of youth of color in gay neighborhoods in her book “Safe Space: Gay Neighborhood History and the Politics of Violence” (Duke University Press, 2013). The real problem is racism.

    Loved the conversation with Shea Coulée!!! Great tips about how to save money while doing drag! I look forward to seeing her perform and learning more about her life!

  2. I agree with the need for people to have more conversations and be open to disagreements. Good conversation about the Sierra Mannie controversy!
