Ever wondered where drag queens come from? Tucked& Plucked unearths the history of the drag movement, and more specifically the indigenous drag community in Vancouver. Following the rise of drag culture alongside – and often directly impacting –the queer rights movement, this glamorous and outrageous talk show explores the effects these audacious individuals have had on social and political change. Co-hosted by real-life drag husbands, The Queen of East Van, Isolde N. Barron (Cameron Mackenzie) andThe Baddest Bitch Peach Cobblah (Dave Deveau). And if these real-life drag husbands weren’t enough, their star-studded lineup of Vancouver’s greatest and most influential indigenous drag royals will bedazzle parts of the local history that you’ve never heard.

“It’s a beautiful and very intimate display of pride…Peach and Isolde are as charming as ever as hosts…It is exciting to know that drag has a place outside the loud and rough world of nightclubs.”
– Georgia Straight
