For queer folks, Tina Fey’s film, Mean Girls became an instant cult classic for the way it captures the complex dynamic between bullies and their victims, which is something LGBT know far too well- from bullies belittling innocent teenagers to bakers who won’t bake a fucking cake for consenting adults, LGBT people always seem to be a target of bullies.
Now if there were only an anti-bullying campaign to end it all.
Today, San Francisco based drag queen Peaches Christ joins us to take a look at bullying in the film Mean Girls and how it carries on the great tradition of teen movies like Heathers and Jawbreaker.
Peaches is bringing her celebrated parody of Mean Girls to Chicago at the Patio Theater on March 3- Mean Gays starring from RuPaul’s Drag Race Kim Chi, Willem and Laganja Estranja.
Listen as Peaches chats with us about her own high school’s version of the burn book, how the film Grey Gardens was made and what makes a really scary haunted house.
