Ep #02: You are born naked and the rest is drag, PII – Cis/AFAB + women in drag

 

“It’s made the world of drag and being gay a little less scary and that’s my favorite thing about the show existing.” – Bea Dazzler

 

 

In the second episode of The Drag Show Podcast, Brandi Amara Skyy talks to Bea Dazzler about RuPaul’s The Guardian comments, why cis/AFAB drag matters and how the landscape of female drag has changed since 1998. Plus we dive into the term faux queen, Michelle Visage at the 2015 Faux Queen Pageant, and Bea’s personal experience working for RuPaul.
