The Nipples Are The Eyes of the Face (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Greggor Mattson, & LaWhore Vagistan (aka Kareem Khubchandani))
Hey ya’ll. This week is a little bit of a curveball, so Mijon is flying solo with queer academia! Yes, we repeat, we are going back to school with professors from Oberlin and Tufts University who have literally been teaching the children about queer nightlife! Greggor Mattson and Kareem Khubchandani/ LaWhore Vagistan are absolute dears who help us deep-dive into RuPaul's Drag Race UK Season 2 Episode 6 Snatch Game. We discuss: Why no one gives Tia Kofi credit for being a lip-sync assassin! Lawrence Chaney has 3 badges so it is time for lip sync. Can a drag queen REALLY elevate themself while filming on the show? Ellie Diamond has a twin and she is crying - a lot. Is she going home? Miriam Margolyles - ouch! Bimini Bon-Boulash's Katie Price - YASSSSSSS! Sister Sister is a psychic - can the franchise actually take another psychic on Snatch Game. Gemma Collins who? Was she even there? What is a bell end? About our guests Greggor Mattson is a professor of sociology and gender, sexuality, and feminist studies at Oberlin College in Northeast Ohio where he teaches courses on cities, sexualities, and nightlife. He is finishing a book about changes in gay bars in the U.S. over the past 25 years, including ones that are more than an hour's drive from another scattered across the American interior. Kareem Khubchandani is an assistant professor at Tufts University. He is the author of Ishtyle: Accenting Gay Indian Nightlife, and co-editor of Queer Nightlife. He is also a drag queen, performing as everyone’s favorite South Asian drag auntie, LaWhore Vagistan.
