Drag Kings and Queens of Columbus


Not that RuPaul isn't fabulous, but drag queens seem to get all the attention. What about drag kings? In this hour, we'll talk to a local king and queen about their ground-breaking work in the Columbus drag scene. We'll also be joined by a documentarian who was surprised by the narrow scope of films about drag, and created one about the innovations right in here in her own backyard.  Guests

  • Gabrielle Burton, documentary filmmaker, creator of Kings Queens and In-Betweens
  • Andrew Levitt, AKA "Nina West," drag performer
  • Liz Balk, AKA "Cool Ethan,"  drag performer
