Queerlesque performer Dis Charge describes herself as a nightmare of drag, inspired by the wails of goth queen Diamanda Galás who was forged in the fires of the AIDS crisis of the late 80s. Like many gals in her scene, Mx Dis cherishes her grassroots scene and feels at odds with the mainstreaming of drag as a result of the success of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

But, even if drag is going mainstream, there will always be folks to rock the system.

Today U.K. queen Dis Charge and her gal pal Ophelia Wilde join us in the home studio to talk about their counterculture roots as burlesque artists.
