The New Kings and Queens

This week: How do we deal with pioneers when their successors find their outlook passé?

Edmonton’s had fabulous drag kings and queens over the years. But as the cultural conversation around gender and queer rights has changed, so has drag. In this episode, we speak to well-known drag performer and writer Darrin Hagen, author of memoir The Edmonton Queen. And we get a glimpse into the closet of Pony Meyer, a drag king performing these days with the Queer Royale troupe.
