For drag queens like Strawberry Shartcake, their mustache is not just a symbol of gender ambiguity, but like a cat’s whiskers, it’s a way they navigate the world around them.
So what happens when a gig you’re dying to get requires you to shave it all off?
We first saw the berrylicious Strawberry Shartcake in Peaches Christ’s Mean Gays, a parody of Tina Fey’s camp classic film Mean Girls, where she played the cool mom portrayed by Amy Poeler. She had to ditch the ‘stache but this shaved Strawberry almost stole the show from hilarious drag giants like Willam, Kim Chi and even Peaches Christ herself.
Today the mustachioed madam, drag queen, go-go dancer and regular in Peaches Christ’s productions, Strawberry Shartcake, joins us to talk about her sex and body positive gender blending ways.
