This weekend on one of my favorite NPR shows, “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me”, did something unprecedented, they brought the wild and weird world of San Francisco drag into the living rooms of a traditionally conservative (and somewhat judgmental) audience. If you do go check out the feature page on NPR.org just ignore the comments by the trolls and applaud Peaches for a very funny, informative, and entertaining segment. And, always the gracious hostess, she gave a great shout out to my other favorite SF queen Heklina by mentioning her “legendary Trannyshack club.”
