Linda Simpson joins us to tell us all about her book The Drag Explosion, featuring snapshots of the downtown and East Village drag scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s. We ask her about the history of the My Comrade zine and all about exploring the East Village scene of New York in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Linda brings us backstage memories about RuPaul, Tabboo!, Lypsinka, Leigh Bowery, Lady Bunny, Michael Alig, Coco Peru, Mona Foot, the Pyramid Club, the Palladium, and more.

We find out what’s going on with Linda Loves Bingo!, the online weekly Bingo game coming to you every Saturday at 8PM Eastern time via Zoom.

Look for The Drag Explosion book offered by Domain Publishing. Watch out for her soon to be released publication, Malibu Mondays, a fantasy storybook series about Caitlyn Jenner with illustrations by Drake Carr.
