It was that great philosopher of modern culture, RuPaul, who said “You were born naked. The rest is drag.” Whether you pile on the sequins and transform your appearance with make-up and wigs, or simply suit up in pinstripes and heels, we all package ourselves. We project an image to the world that reflects who we want to be seen as. Usually this appearance is dictated by social codes, by what others expect to see if you are a doctor, construction worker, artist or Mom. You’re playing by someone else’s rules. What’s so subversive about drag queens is that they project what they themselves want the world to see. A man who wants huge boobs and to make the audience laugh. A man who wants to the world to gasp at a vision of glamour and ethereal beauty.
Our topic tonight – What is drag? What’s yours? And most importantly, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR TO THE QUEEN + ADAM SHOW? Enjoy this interview and let your mind expand!

Have you been following or reading about the #YesAllWomen movement on Twitter? Juneau blogged about how the stories of how all women live with the threat of violence made her reflect about why Adam Lambert won her heart. But there is more to it than that. Adam has inspired so many and given women — and men — the courage to face fear, throw off their shackles and not be dictated to about how they should look, or feel, or behave.
We live in a very complex time, with extreme oppression of women still widespread in much of the world, while in the West, women have made strides undreamt of just a generation ago… and yet our media are filled with images of women that seem more hypersexualized than ever. Is this empowerment or a trap? And what about men? When white males still fill the CEO suites and earn more than women for doing the same jobs, why are some so filled with rage? Is this just the backlash of those who are losing their privileged positions, or is something else going on?
My awesome Glambert friend and author Juneau is joining me for a live discussion. Call in to share your views! We look forward to an hour of serious discussion and seriously good music, of course!
