(Golden Delicious & Ruby B. Stoned)

Get ready for an audio drag show extravaganza! Two of our favorite Alaska drag queens (Ruby B. Stoned and Golden Delicious) join Nate for a hilarious show!

  • We talk about Goldie’s position as Youth Program Manager for Identity, Inc, and what got these queens in drag for the first time. (spoiler alert: they were busted)
  • You’re gonna learn all about the “ first, premiere, foremost, foreskinned” gay club in Anchorage—Mad Myrna’s!
  • These beautiful queens talk about what drag means to them and how they like to present themselves.
  • We also discuss what we would love to see queer culture become in the state of Alaska.
  • On a related note, we also discuss the future of the drag community in general.
  • Stay tuned, because we’re going to go over some advice for new drag queens that are just finding their place in the community and in the drag ‘scene,’ as well as throw shade at Ruby for not trying new eyebrows.
  • During one of my favorite discussions on the show, we talk about inspirations and aspirations and what these queens envision doing with drag in the future.

Brooklyn-based artists Nia & Ness are more than just a duo of performers. Their experiences as a black lesbian couple navigating life’s trials are the basis of their work, a mix of spoken word poetry and dance that brings to life the joys and struggles of their intertwined experience.

Currently, the duo is working on their first full-length performance, titled Run which debuts later this summer.

Nia & Ness joined us via phone ahead of Brooklyn Pride 2017 to discuss their work, what inspires them, and what they think of creating their art in the age of President Trump.

– We also grabbed some really cool info on IMSL (International Ms Leather) from Sarha about the craziness of being nominated and running for that title.

– The show wraps up finding out if each guests could provide us with one statement they could put out in the world to attack some of the preconceived notions that the general public has about the BDSM, leather, and kink communities.

On this edition of Last Queer Frontier, Enzina Marrari and Tom Chung tell us what brought them to Alaska and what they’re experiences here have been. Spoiler alert: Tom chose Alaska over making art with snake bones.

  • We discuss the EPIC painting by Tom that was featured in a UAA gallery and caused hella drama. Wait until you hear Tom read some of the postcards that were sent to him by some absolutely insane conservatives. Also, how he was interviewed by The Washington Post (who chose not to run his story), Breitbart News, and various other conservative media outlets.
  • Tom talks about some of the driving forces behind his painting as well as some of the animal symbolism he included within it.
  • Enzina and Tom tell us a little bit about the history of drama (not the Shakespeare kind) and controversy in the UAA Art Department. Both speak out about struggles they have gone through with students and struggles they have witnessed their students go through and explain what they hope comes of the situation the university is dealing with since Tom displayed his work.
