Podcast: Sherry Poppins Bloops & Bleeps Her Way to the GLAMs

Thotlight is nominated for a GLAM Award! Jim and Freddie chat Thanksgiving and revel in their nominations, and prepare for Awards Season! And wait… are Jim’s ancient parents really coming to the ceremony!? 

Then it’s time to chat with  two time GLAM nominee Sherry Poppins! This eclectic and unpredictable comedy queen discusses her POV on the difference between Brooklyn and Manhattan and Astoria drag (and even the difference between Icon & Albatross), growing up in “the seedy underbelly” of Long Island, the phenomenon that is (was!?) SUNY Purchase drag, the beginnings and recent anniversary of her nutty drag production troop STR8 to DVD, what makes C’mon Everybody great, how she connects with an audience,  lip synching commercials and the Wii Shop Channel music, all her gigs including a big upcoming Christmas show, and ho-ing in the Financial District!

In the news: a full discussion of the Colorado Springs Q Club shooting; a vandal who threw rocks at new NYC gay bar VERS is arrested; popular young Black nightlife event producer Frank Watson passes away;  Julius‘ is one step closer to landmark status; Jinkx Monsoon is coming to Broadway; Tom Delay spotted at Hardware; Shangela presents a moving number in the Dancing with the Stars finale; Legendary is cancelled.

Freddie and Jim also begin their Soon-To-Be-Iconic GLAM category discussions and win predictions! This week: Group or Duo, Competition, Gogo Boy and Hair Design!
