Podcast: Mr. Eagle 2023 is Here For All Gear! Also: RIP The Q!


Thotyssey’s Jim Silvestri and co-host Freddie Cosmo present a weekly podcast taped live at Red NY discussing NYC queer nightlife news and gossip, featuring a new interview with a dynamic insider each week.

Jim and Freddie catch us up on their week, but are so excited to share this week’s nightlife news and chat up their guest this week!

First up,  that guest: Chris “Cadet” Kelley aka Mr. Eagle 2023. He spills the tea on his fun name origin, the iconic status and current re-popularity of The Eagle, how the kink and community of the leather scene helped him overcome trauma and find family,  discovering the joy of the competition scene, how the expense of leather does not have to exclude anyone from the scene, the events he hosts at The Eagle, being a set decorator Ryan Murphy & AHS… and of course, Paella Lady!

In the news: indictments made in the “roofie murder” cases; The Q closed;  Trappy Hour’s “Next” also shutters; Frankie Sharp shares new details on his upcoming venue; an owner of Rise Bar and The Spot may open a new venture of his own;  Texas joins Tennessee in drag banning; Bob the Drag Queen is joining Madonna onstage in Tennessee despite the legal climate; a traffic court judge gets a Moment when his adult content surfaces after his firing; the world’s oldest drag queen has left us.
