Today is gonna be a lot of fun. I know we just talked about RuPaul’s Drag Race but inspired by that, we’re going to be talking about even more drag shit. Get used to it. Today we’re chatting about To Wong Foo, and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
We’d seen To Wong Foo before but not in some time. Knowing it was one of the first movies to bring such big visibility to the drag community, we felt like we needed to brush up. Turns out though, Wil meant for them to watch Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; another drag-focused film from the same time period but from Australia. So we said fuck it and watched them both! And we really liked them, just in different ways. One is a little more off the wall, one is down to Earth but has more heart. Listen in to find out which is which!
We also couldn’t not talk about our trip out to see Florence and the Machine! We had bad seats but had so much fun! She’s the coolest and we recommend going to see her if you get the chance.
Anyway, we had a lot of fun chatting about these two films as well as about drag culture and peoples’ reactions to it. Hopefully we’ll see even more movies like this in the future. So hop in your convertible and crank up the volume for today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
