FOF #2932 – Nicki J!zz is Jazz Hot Baby

Some names are just begging to be adopted by drag queens, kings and other colorful shape shifters: Robin Banks, Poo Ping, Ima Hogg, Peter Gozinya or Izzy Hung.

So what happens when two queens in the same city come up with the same name at the same time? Who gets to keep the exclusive rights to the name?

Today San Francisco drag queen Nicki J!zz, that’s Jazz with I, joins us to tell us how a queen came for her drag name while performing in one of Peaches Christ’s shows and how black drag queens are organizing to put pressure on gay bars to fight racism.

FOF #2836 – Aaron Schock and Elizabeth Warren Are Out

Shocking news! After years of posting shirtless photos of himself online with other men at circuit parties the former disgraced congressman Aaron Schock came out as gay saying “I am gay, which should come as no surprise.”

You might remember Aaron from back in the day when the internet went gaga over his pool party ensemble- a cute gingham shirt, white shorts and turquoise belt that bent straightness so far it curved back into itself.

Today comedian Matt Brown joins us to look at Aaaron Schock coming out and Elizabeth Warren dropping out of the U.S. Presidential election.
