It's our final Melodies and Menus podcast episode of the summer, and what better way to wrap things up than with some dynamic conversations of Pride season and being queer in the entertainment industry?
First, co-hosts Dan Clapson and Madison Olds chat with iconic Canadian drag queen Kendall Gender. As a fixture of the Vancouver drag scene, Kendall has long been a must-see queen on the West Coast, but after her runner-up finish on Canada's Drag Race Season 2, she is now a household name.
Kendall discusses her work as a Pride ambassador for Fairmont Hotels as well as why she loves giving back to the queer community in general and, of course, her undying love of performing for crowds around the globe.
Next, Amy Hef joins the co-hosts to talk about her genre fluid approach to creating music and how being queer filters into her day-to-day work as a musician. She also discusses how Pride season is an exciting and business time for her as a performer.
