  • 0124: The Drag of Rating Hanoi Queens

    In this episode we rate the Top 10 Queens in the city of Hanoi. There are way more queens, kings and quings in the city. However this list is looking at entertainers who have been making an imprint right now in the city.

    We didn't include ourselves on the list because we wanted to keep the list fair. If we included ourselves, we would be fighting for the number spot with each other.

    We both ranked queens and then compared lists in order to come up with this list. Check it out.

  • 0120: The Drag of Drag Race Holland Finale

    A well-deserved condragulations to Envy Peru for snatching the crown on Drag Race Holland. Having said that, this entire season wasn't without critique.

The rest of the queens returned as well, looking absolutely stunning. Take a listen on how we felt about the season and how we think season 2 should happen.

  • 0119: The Drag of Drag Race Holland Ep 7

    We Chelsea Boy sashayed away in the last episode, It Takes Two. This week the Top 4 skipped and hopped "to the maxima" in the Maxima: The Rusical. We usually get a Rusical early in the season, but I guess Drag Race Holland is different. The runway category was RED, WHITE AND BLUE. Some outfits were outstanding, others were cute and others were just garbage mama. Take a listen at the shade we threw over the Rusical while giving the girls all the praise they deserved.

Make sure you have your tissues ready because this episode will have you shed a few tears. It's makeover day and it involves the contestants' relatives. Some really touching stories came through from this episode, especially from Mama Queen and Janey Jacké. If you didn't watch Drag Race Holland at all, you should definitely tune in for this episode. It's that episode that reminds you why we all love Drag Race so much.

  • 0117: The Drag of Dragula Resurrection

    After a really long time, The Boulet Brothers finally remembered that we mortals exist so they decided to take us on a journey of a resurrection. Dragula: Resurrection premiered with stars from the previous 3 season. Due to the current pandemic, the show was shot in 7 different cities with 7 different queens. They had to put together 3 legacy looks to prove that they've got the chops to win $20.000 and a chance to compete in the 4th season of the show. Take a listen to what we thought of the queens, their looks and the series in general. We definitely can't wait for Season 4 to hit our screens soon.

  • 0116 - The Drag of Drag Race Holland Ep 5

    This week's episode of Drag Race Holland features the game we all love for every season, SNATCH GAME. This is usually the episode that divides the standouts and the filler queens. Was it the case with Drag Race Holland? Take a listen and find out. The runway category got us divided (no pun intended). The Half-Man and Half Queen category got us talking about gender politics, thanks to the stunning Mama Queen who came out as non-binary.

  • 0115 - The Drag of Drag Race Holland Ep 4

    In episode 4 of Drag Race Holland we went in once again. As we both said in the podcast, this was the worst dance challenge in the herstory of Drag Race dance challenges. Take a listen as to why we thought so. The theme for the runway was Shine Bright Like a Diamond. While others did shine, some were definitely dim. Sidenote: This is also the episode where Winnie's 20 centimeters are being discussed (pun intended).

  • 0114 - The Drag of Drag Race Holland Ep 3

    In this episode we tore down the queen's acting chops on their off-off-off-off Hollywood parody skit Gooische Drag, based on the popular TV show Desperate Housewives. The looks for the runway were inspired by Miss Holland. We had a lot to say about this, including Alyssa Edwards' iconic line "Mama this is garbage." If you think we went in on the girls for their runways, just wait till you hear what we have to say about their lipsynchs.

  • 0113 - The Drag of Drag Race Holland Ep 2

    In episode 2 of Drag Race Holland, we got to see a little more personality from the queens. The mini challenge for the week was "Pimp My Clogs." We had opinions on this but also appreciated the cultural reference as we got to know a little more about Holland. The maxi-challenge was workout video with the help from athlete Olga Commandeur. The runway this was "Face, Face, Face." Overall this was a good episode but we did have a lot of shade to throw towards the lipsynch. A looot of shade.

  • 0112 - The Drag of Wig Styling with Fiona Hi-Lee

    This episode is all about giving good head; good hair to be specific. Fiona Hi-Lee has been giving us Vietnamese words of the day since we started this podcast. We eventually sat down with her about wig styling. Her signature style is Victory rolls so she will give us tips and tricks on how to achieve the style. She also gives the top 5 essentials every queen needs for styling hair and tips on the kind of wig a new queen should buy.

    One thing we didn't expect was the interesting talk we had about the Vietnam War, which we kept in the episode. As she puts it, "every war is a stupid one," but the remnants of war remain with a society for decades after it has ended.

    Fiona is also shady the house down boots so take a listen for a few laughs, some gay kiki'ing and helpful tricks on wiggery.

    This episode is all about Drag Race Holland's premiere episode. As fans of the reality TV franchise, we couldn't resist talking about the premiere episode of the Holland version.

    This episode was mainly focused on looks so we dissected each queen inside and out. We will be watching the whole season with excitement every week.

  • 0110 - The Drag of Hanoi Pride with Bu Nguyen

    In today’s episode, we’ll be talking about Hanoi Pride. Pride is an LGBTQIIA+ staple of many progressive cities and countries around the world. Although Hanoi is considered a “conservative” city, the mindset of the society towards the LGBTQIIA+ community has been - in our foreign experience - pleasant.

    Nearly 1000 people were interested in last year’s event. We performed there alongside VicTeam, the British Ambassador gave a speech of support and it was held at the American club. The party scene was also very colorful and busy in our area. Even though this year’s proceedings will be online, we have invited one of the organizers to hear more about Hanoi Pride.

  • 0109 - The Drag of Canada's Drag Race

    In today’s episode, we’ll be talking about Canada’s Drag Race. I really enjoyed the first season and I really think the 2nd season will be super interesting. So we’ll discuss it and its contestants. We’ll talk about the girls, the highs and lows, the fandom’s hate for Jeffrey Bowyer Chapman and finally the winner, Priyanka. We made this episode really quickly so we won’t have a new word of the day from our sister in the closet. We will repeat one we used in the first episode because it is still appropriate.
