The Sewers of Paris

Revealing stories about the books, movies, tv, music and more that have changed the lives of gay men. Each week, a guest plucks a piece of entertainment from their past, and answers the question: how did it change your life?


episode 303: You Don't Want to See Minnie Mouse Take Her Head Off (Ep. 303 - BenDeLaCreme)

You may have seen the very exciting news this week that BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon will release a holiday special this year — an adaptation of their wonderful live holiday show. I helped out with the shooting of the special and without giving away too much, I can tell you that it is going to be AMAZING. For this week’s Sewers of Paris, we’re jumping into the archives to revisit my 2016 interview with BenDeLaCreme, a performer who specializes in breaking boundaries, upending order, and causing mischief. You probably know her best from Season 6 of Drag Race, or the even more shocking All-Stars twist. If you enjoyed her on reality TV and at her live shows, just wait until you get to know Ben, the alter ego behind the character.

But first, a reminder that The Sewers of Paris is on Twitter and Facebook, where I post clips of the stuff that we talk about on each episode.

And I hope you’ll join me for our next fun friendly livestream on September 25 at 11am Pacific. It’s a nice relaxing time to just hang out and chat. There’s a link at the top of the Sewers of Paris twitter feed.

And don’t forget to check out my other shows! Culture Cruise on YouTube is a deep dive into queer entertainment milestones. And check out Queens of Adventure and Queens of Adventure: Legends, two narrative comedy shows with drag heroes going on adventures in a world of fantasy.
