The Drag Queens of Too Wong Foo

Feast of Fun: Gay Talk Show

It’s the 20 year anniversary of To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, the unusual film that came out on the heels of the very successful Priscilla Queen of the Desert. To Wong Foo put three A-list actors in full drag but unlike Priscilla, we bareley saw the drag queens out of drag as human beings, which gave the whole film a very surreal feel.On top of that, the beginning and end of the film featured pretty much every famous drag queen at the time, including RuPaul in a Confederate Flag dress as Miss Rachel Tension, the pageant queen who sends Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo and yes, Wesley Snipes on a road trip across America in full drag.Joining us today is one of the queens prominently featured in the opening scene, Miss Understood. She’s taking us on a road trip back in time, from her work at Lucky Cheng’s with Laverne Cox to booking some of the world’s top drag queens and all the Drag Race girls before they were on that show.Plus- One thing you can do to get more bookings as a drag queen. Yes Felicia, there is a Thai Gay naughty film parody of Jurassic World, with drag queens.[Originally posted on July 23, 2015 ]

To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar

Track Listing Podcast

Swayze, Snipes, Leguizamo...no, it's not a 90s B action movie. It's a movie about 3 drag queens on a road trip who may or may not have murdered a cop. This week's soundtrack is To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar. Yes, that's the film's title. We wrote that correctly. Nick picked this episode, Caleb prepared a game of Super Group to stump us and we also recommend our favorite song with an absurdly long title. We learned a lot about the drag world and a lot about ourselves this episode. Please now refer to us as Penny Kravitz, Steely Jan, and Jenny Loggins. Submit your guesses as to who is who.
