Episode 151: BONUS! Alright Mary Live w/ Darcelle XV + Anthony Hudson (2019 Listen Up PDX Festival)
March 13, 2019 9:25pm
We had our very first live show at the 2019 Listen Up PDX Festival in February! While Portland has lovely people and delicious potatoes, it also has legendary drag, including the oldest working drag queen (with a Guinness World Record to prove it!), Darcelle XV! We had the huge honor of sitting down with both Darcelle (aka Walter Cole) and Portland’s premier drag clown Anthony Hudson (aka Carla Rossi) to discuss what exactly is Portland drag, how the city’s drag scene even started (it’s largely thanks to lesbians!) and the experience of watching the queer community evolve through some of its most formative decades.
This was a really amazing experience–a big thank you to Listen Up PDX for making this happen! @ListenUpPDX (Twitter)
