Good episode? Give it some love!
We have the legendary Kiki DuRane AKA Auntie Glam, that's right... it's Justin Vivian Bond! She tells us all about filming her holiday special "Oh, Mary" at the legendary Joe's Pub (sans audiences). Viv and Heklina recollect sharing stages in San Francisco and then Mx Viv gives us a pretty jarring (canning?) account of Heklina's first ever drag performance... Marc is not sure if we should include a trigger warning: it involves creamed corn. We remember the recently departed Bambi Lake. Then, Viv regales us with stories about Eartha Kitt and Bambi Lake. We find out about the Bambi-Lake-inspired San Francisco origin story of Kiki and Herb's Kiki DuRane and all about the masterclass Eartha Kitt gave Vivian Bond on being absolutely glamorous and perfectly political.

"Golden Age of Hustlers" is written by Bambi Lake and performed by Justin Vivian Bond. The song is featured with permission from Justin Vivian Bond.
