WEBVTT 1 00:00:01.199 --> 00:00:05.080 Hey, what's up world? Welcome to snack size, the podcast that will 2 00:00:05.120 --> 00:00:09.830 drag you into your most fabulous life. I'm your host, La La Luscious, 3 00:00:10.070 --> 00:00:13.669 also known as the snack of the twin cities. I decided for myself 4 00:00:13.750 --> 00:00:16.589 that I can be whatever I want to be. So I decided to be 5 00:00:16.789 --> 00:00:20.629 a drag queen, and if I can live my dreams, you can to. 6 00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:24.859 The time has come to believing yourself enough to turn your ideas into more 7 00:00:24.980 --> 00:00:27.980 than mere words, and, no matter what you are doing in life or 8 00:00:28.019 --> 00:00:31.500 where you want to go, I want to help you get there fabulously. 9 00:00:31.739 --> 00:00:42.170 Our double snack episode start snaw hey snacks. We are on episode three of 10 00:00:42.250 --> 00:00:47.850 snack size and today I'm doing my very first double snack. Double snack episodes 11 00:00:47.890 --> 00:00:51.719 are a little longer than my usual episodes, but I will be bringing on 12 00:00:51.880 --> 00:00:55.840 special guests for this double snack. I want you to hear the perspective of 13 00:00:55.920 --> 00:01:00.119 another drag performer who I perform within the twin cities. She performs as a 14 00:01:00.159 --> 00:01:03.799 drag king as well as a drag diva. A drag diva in the drag 15 00:01:03.880 --> 00:01:08.629 community is a female performance artist who amplifies her femininity to the utmost level and 16 00:01:08.790 --> 00:01:14.469 creates an illusion of grandeur very similar to that of a drag queen. In 17 00:01:14.590 --> 00:01:19.939 addition to drag this guess has an extensive performing resume which includes appearances with big 18 00:01:19.980 --> 00:01:25.500 name bands, dance troops, circus caravans and traveling tours. So please give 19 00:01:25.540 --> 00:01:29.739 a snack size welcome them to my very first guess, my dear friend Kitty. 20 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:33.530 When I originally planned this episode, I hope to have kitty here with 21 00:01:33.650 --> 00:01:37.409 me in the studio today, but due to social distancing, she will be 22 00:01:37.450 --> 00:01:42.730 joining us remotely, so let's give her a call. Hi, Kitty, 23 00:01:42.769 --> 00:01:47.959 welcome to snacks eyes. Hello, thank you so much for being my first 24 00:01:48.079 --> 00:01:51.599 guest. Super Exciting to have you. But those of you who are listening, 25 00:01:51.719 --> 00:01:55.879 Kitty and I know each other from a fabulous performing group called the Red 26 00:01:56.040 --> 00:02:01.549 Hot rascals and reschools. Yes, we are like a quirky cabaret performing group. 27 00:02:01.590 --> 00:02:07.870 We've got dancers and magicians and Hula Hoop artists, all different types of 28 00:02:07.909 --> 00:02:10.629 things, and we perform all over the twin cities. So as soon as 29 00:02:10.710 --> 00:02:14.870 Miss Rona lets us perform again, we going to be out there doing it. 30 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:19.060 So kitting is one of our drag kings. And also and the show 31 00:02:19.180 --> 00:02:22.379 that did not happen because of the virus. You were going to be one 32 00:02:22.419 --> 00:02:24.180 of our diva's as well. You and I both wear a lot of different 33 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:29.219 hats, so I know that you're a busy person, I'm a busy person, 34 00:02:29.379 --> 00:02:31.689 and drag has helped us in all the aspects of our life, and 35 00:02:31.770 --> 00:02:36.810 so I want you to start for talking about your daytoday life and then tell 36 00:02:36.849 --> 00:02:39.129 us about your different characters and how you developed them. First off, I'm 37 00:02:39.169 --> 00:02:42.689 really honored to be your first guest, Lolla, so thank you. Oh, 38 00:02:42.770 --> 00:02:46.400 of course, I appreciate you. My name, as you already mentioned, 39 00:02:46.520 --> 00:02:50.599 is Kitty, and my normal day job I'm a small business owner of 40 00:02:50.719 --> 00:02:54.159 an empowerment and fitness event style company. So I do something called rebounding, 41 00:02:54.199 --> 00:02:58.870 which are these school boots that bounce and save your joints, and we travel 42 00:02:58.990 --> 00:03:02.789 around to breweries and do private parties things like that to bring this new and 43 00:03:02.909 --> 00:03:07.870 fun fitness thing to people. And then I'll also, on the flip side 44 00:03:07.909 --> 00:03:10.550 of that, I do a lot of entertaining and performing as a character performer 45 00:03:10.830 --> 00:03:15.659 and I also do to podcasts as well as I'm a puppy parent of three. 46 00:03:17.460 --> 00:03:22.379 Yeah, I've three little teddy bears. Little you watch the DIS rule 47 00:03:22.460 --> 00:03:24.419 my home. How long have you been performing? Okay, let's see, 48 00:03:24.740 --> 00:03:30.569 but let's just say two decades. Oh my goodness, I love performing. 49 00:03:30.889 --> 00:03:35.210 It really it's it's something that I've known from a really young age that I 50 00:03:35.330 --> 00:03:38.250 wanted to do and I just continue to follow it. So, in terms 51 00:03:38.289 --> 00:03:43.120 of your character, I know you have two, which I think is amazing. 52 00:03:43.159 --> 00:03:49.639 Christopher tracing him bayonet, and how did you develop those characters? So 53 00:03:49.800 --> 00:03:53.479 Christopher came first and I had a lot of friends who were drag kings and 54 00:03:53.840 --> 00:03:59.069 they actually asked me to start choreographing some performances for them and as I was 55 00:03:59.110 --> 00:04:02.189 choreographing these performances, they were finding out so much about themselves and who they 56 00:04:02.229 --> 00:04:06.990 were by stepping into these different characters. And from there I almost felt really 57 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:13.099 strongly that I too could find deeper, maybe secret pieces of myself by stepping 58 00:04:13.219 --> 00:04:16.819 into this character that I knew was a part of me. So Christopher really 59 00:04:16.939 --> 00:04:21.019 was born due to the fact that I want to do explore and Rogeny and 60 00:04:21.139 --> 00:04:27.649 gender fluidity and performing in a different vibration than I ever had before. I 61 00:04:27.769 --> 00:04:32.290 think that it's really cool that you say Androgyny, because one thing you're doing 62 00:04:32.569 --> 00:04:36.250 that I'm not doing is you have two personalities. One is Christopher, who 63 00:04:36.329 --> 00:04:42.079 celebrating Mass Lenity, and then you have Bayon Net, which is the you 64 00:04:42.199 --> 00:04:46.600 know, boss diva type personality. Talk about bayonet a little bit. Sure. 65 00:04:46.439 --> 00:04:50.879 Bay It is your straight boss, bish and just a really confident stand 66 00:04:50.959 --> 00:04:54.629 in her power, speaker truth, you know it. Just proud of her 67 00:04:54.709 --> 00:04:57.670 body, proud of who she is, you know, and has really strong 68 00:04:57.790 --> 00:05:00.430 boundaries, boundaries being you know what you will and will not accept from people 69 00:05:00.709 --> 00:05:05.509 and yourself as well. When you look at both Christopher and bay the male 70 00:05:05.790 --> 00:05:10.779 that I really step into that energy is a quiet confidence, like really a 71 00:05:11.019 --> 00:05:15.899 humble swag. So I'm trying to flip gender roles all over the place, 72 00:05:15.500 --> 00:05:21.170 because a quiet nail that is just energetically connected, in emotionally connected on then, 73 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:26.129 on top of that, my female is just very brash and bold and 74 00:05:26.370 --> 00:05:29.970 really confident in her sexuality. So I'm trying to take, you know, 75 00:05:30.129 --> 00:05:34.050 our normal societal gender roles, if you will, and create new boxes, 76 00:05:34.839 --> 00:05:39.399 or not even boxes at all, like fuck a box, oh, exactly. 77 00:05:39.759 --> 00:05:43.920 I think as entertainers, especially in this industry, each of the characters 78 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:47.879 that we create starts with our ideas and and in the way that you know, 79 00:05:48.000 --> 00:05:51.629 we bring our ideas to life and they're genuinely our own. Through this 80 00:05:51.750 --> 00:05:56.550 podcast I want to help other people whatever ideas they may have, and feel 81 00:05:56.750 --> 00:06:00.310 like they can bring them to life as well. When we talked to the 82 00:06:00.350 --> 00:06:04.100 phone before this podcast, you had said that each character is like flexing a 83 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:09.540 muscle, and that really resonated with me, that each character brings out different 84 00:06:09.579 --> 00:06:13.660 things in you and you get to exercise parts of yourself by being these characters. 85 00:06:13.740 --> 00:06:15.740 So tell me about each character and which, I guess, muscle they 86 00:06:15.779 --> 00:06:18.649 are. So in my day job I do a lot of coaching. High 87 00:06:18.689 --> 00:06:24.610 Five fitcom by the way. Shameless plug. Oh yeah, but with Christopher, 88 00:06:24.810 --> 00:06:29.329 you know, that silent swag or that really quiet confidence helps me to 89 00:06:29.410 --> 00:06:33.680 flex muscles with emotions or with vibrations rather than with communication or words. So 90 00:06:33.839 --> 00:06:39.439 that's a muscle. The magnetism, the self love, all of that stuff, 91 00:06:39.439 --> 00:06:42.360 all of these are muscles, just like you would flex B set muscle 92 00:06:42.399 --> 00:06:46.319 to make it bigger, reflex our inner talk muscle. We flex our stand 93 00:06:46.319 --> 00:06:48.550 up for our selves muscle. And all of these were muscles that I knew 94 00:06:48.550 --> 00:06:54.709 I craved more connection with you know, those muscles, when you're using them, 95 00:06:54.750 --> 00:06:58.870 while you're performing, can transfer into what you do on the daily. 96 00:06:59.550 --> 00:07:01.899 So you know, as your life is kitty, before you started performing like 97 00:07:02.019 --> 00:07:05.379 we're, you struggling with something and then one day it just completely like change 98 00:07:05.459 --> 00:07:11.259 for you because you had been performing absolutely as a business owner, you can't 99 00:07:11.300 --> 00:07:15.100 say the things you really want to, to stand up for yourself, because 100 00:07:15.139 --> 00:07:17.569 you don't want the bad reviews, you don't want the negative, you know, 101 00:07:17.649 --> 00:07:21.490 vibes. So as a pusiness it's really hard to stand in your power 102 00:07:21.689 --> 00:07:26.290 and and create those boundaries, as as always talking about earlier. But after 103 00:07:26.410 --> 00:07:30.000 stepping into the role of Christopher, after stepping into the roll of Bay and 104 00:07:30.519 --> 00:07:35.639 being in those energies, I then could almost bring that. For example, 105 00:07:35.720 --> 00:07:42.759 when someone in my business would would say something that would be blatant, just 106 00:07:43.199 --> 00:07:46.750 asinine, I was able to find the words to stand in my power, 107 00:07:47.110 --> 00:07:50.350 but I wouldn't shrivel up or I wouldn't back away from it, or I 108 00:07:50.430 --> 00:07:56.589 wouldn't run away from confrontation. If that connects oh absolutely. In the previous 109 00:07:56.629 --> 00:08:01.579 episode I actually was just talking about having those healthy boundaries at work and in 110 00:08:01.660 --> 00:08:05.899 your personal life, and how drag has given me the confidence to honestly, 111 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:09.899 you know, know how I feel, and then be able to speak and 112 00:08:09.019 --> 00:08:13.410 act on it. That's what I feel like is such an important part of 113 00:08:13.529 --> 00:08:18.089 what we do as performers. We are finding ourselves in ways that I guess 114 00:08:18.089 --> 00:08:20.769 the rest of the world does it, because we have that freedom to. 115 00:08:20.889 --> 00:08:26.250 It's that creative that we have to find ourselves and figure ourselves out. So 116 00:08:26.490 --> 00:08:31.720 even the parts that we struggle with were able to become stronger because we are 117 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:35.879 we're playing these characters or we're putting ourselves out there in a different way. 118 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:39.120 I think when you're I taught, I said it is amazing what you will 119 00:08:39.159 --> 00:08:43.549 learn about yourself by being someone else. It's weird because we're being someone else, 120 00:08:43.549 --> 00:08:46.309 but we're also being our attentive selves. Thank yourself, secret self. 121 00:08:46.509 --> 00:08:50.870 Yeah, it's secret self, you know, the secret self that doesn't always 122 00:08:50.909 --> 00:08:54.230 come out and day to day, because you know, society expects this and 123 00:08:54.269 --> 00:08:56.779 they expect us to be one way, but maybe we actually feel differently. 124 00:08:56.899 --> 00:09:00.860 So we get to bring that out in our art and it's such a beautiful 125 00:09:00.940 --> 00:09:03.820 balance that, once you came that confidence as a performer, you can just 126 00:09:03.980 --> 00:09:09.620 easily transfer it to other partying saying it. So yes, I love that 127 00:09:09.820 --> 00:09:13.330 you have tapped into that and utilize that for your business, because it sounds 128 00:09:13.370 --> 00:09:16.330 like, if you're working in empowerment, that's like a really keyte part of 129 00:09:16.370 --> 00:09:20.289 it. Well, I'm glad you brought that up too, because I almost 130 00:09:20.370 --> 00:09:24.080 reach the level of how do I empower myself on a deeper level, and 131 00:09:24.200 --> 00:09:28.639 then I started digging into what you just mentioned was my secret self, those 132 00:09:28.679 --> 00:09:33.559 things that I knew were very blatant about me, but I wasn't living them 133 00:09:33.559 --> 00:09:37.240 or I wasn't showing them to other people due to judgments, due to not 134 00:09:37.360 --> 00:09:41.830 being accepted. But I really enjoy how you put that. We find out 135 00:09:41.870 --> 00:09:46.190 so much of ourselves by being someone else, because you're able to pull out 136 00:09:46.190 --> 00:09:50.269 authentic pieces of you and be a character with them for maybe a three minute 137 00:09:50.389 --> 00:09:54.100 performance. Then you can go back to what you know exactly. And I 138 00:09:54.259 --> 00:09:58.340 feel like the more you do it, if you can do it for three 139 00:09:58.379 --> 00:10:00.539 minutes, you can do it for five minutes. If you can do it 140 00:10:00.620 --> 00:10:01.940 for five minutes, you can do it for an hour, you can do 141 00:10:01.980 --> 00:10:05.620 it for a whole day and then it turns into something that becomes for a 142 00:10:05.700 --> 00:10:11.169 life time and then you level up exactly. It's all about leveling up. 143 00:10:11.210 --> 00:10:13.129 And then it's funny that the challenges as you go as a performer, the 144 00:10:13.210 --> 00:10:16.129 challenges do you have when you first started, are not the same challenge as 145 00:10:16.169 --> 00:10:20.809 you have in your current career, and you're overcoming those and using drag or 146 00:10:20.129 --> 00:10:24.360 you know, whatever type of performative maybe to work through those and it's just 147 00:10:24.679 --> 00:10:30.320 it's such a growing process that I hope that the listeners will just allow themselves 148 00:10:30.799 --> 00:10:35.509 the space to creatively explore themselves. You know, I don't want everyone to 149 00:10:35.590 --> 00:10:39.509 feel like they need to hop on a stage to do this. This is 150 00:10:39.549 --> 00:10:43.750 something you can do in your daytoday life, tapping in to the secret self 151 00:10:43.909 --> 00:10:46.470 and those parts of yourself that are hard to let out. Just go in 152 00:10:46.590 --> 00:10:50.220 and let them out, see what happens and and develop them well, and 153 00:10:50.259 --> 00:10:54.139 I challenge your listeners to do you know, create a character and step into 154 00:10:54.179 --> 00:10:58.940 it for five minutes, ten minutes. I didn't stay. I just didn't 155 00:10:58.980 --> 00:11:01.340 wake up one day and say, you know what I'm going to do drag. 156 00:11:01.899 --> 00:11:05.730 It was a step by step process of looking really deep, like holding 157 00:11:05.730 --> 00:11:07.690 the mirror to myself kind of stuff like what do I really want to do? 158 00:11:07.889 --> 00:11:13.929 Be In half and then, piece by piece, you know, stepping 159 00:11:13.009 --> 00:11:18.250 more into it until you feel comfortable. And most of my characters, La 160 00:11:18.289 --> 00:11:22.039 La, are my leveling up, like you can can see the level up 161 00:11:22.120 --> 00:11:24.080 I've done with the characters I've created. So I will tell you. For 162 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:28.000 me, I absolutely just woke up one day and said I've got to do 163 00:11:28.080 --> 00:11:33.909 drag. I thought I was revolutionary heavy. I just know the that I 164 00:11:33.309 --> 00:11:39.509 was the go beat, the next big thing, but it turns outs out 165 00:11:39.549 --> 00:11:43.389 that other people were doing it. So when you say it's a gradual process, 166 00:11:43.710 --> 00:11:46.500 talk about how you build the different parts of your characters. Sure, 167 00:11:46.779 --> 00:11:52.899 Christopher uses no words to speak, and that's a that's a skill and to 168 00:11:54.019 --> 00:12:00.620 be aware of your presence in the present moment is such a really profound thing 169 00:12:00.860 --> 00:12:03.610 in a skill. And as I continued plugging into Christopher a lot more, 170 00:12:05.370 --> 00:12:07.970 that became an everyday part of my life where, instead of my usual self 171 00:12:09.009 --> 00:12:11.169 of Hey, I'm the leader, to be able to step back and be 172 00:12:11.289 --> 00:12:16.960 more humble. That just created a brand new doorway or a brand new possibility 173 00:12:16.039 --> 00:12:20.440 of what I wanted to become. And now your other character, bayonet, 174 00:12:20.679 --> 00:12:24.240 sounds like a newer character, right correct? Yes, just last year. 175 00:12:26.320 --> 00:12:30.149 So was there something that was going on in your life? That said, 176 00:12:30.429 --> 00:12:33.870 you know, I'm sure that your work as Christopher Tracy has done a lot 177 00:12:33.909 --> 00:12:35.789 for you. was there's some point in life when you said, okay, 178 00:12:35.789 --> 00:12:41.269 now I need to introduce this new character. Yes, you know, to 179 00:12:41.350 --> 00:12:46.460 get really vulnerable and authentic with you. There were things about my sexuality that 180 00:12:46.539 --> 00:12:50.179 I was searching for and craving more of. You know, Christopher has the 181 00:12:50.299 --> 00:12:54.259 silence, swag and the masculine energy, whereas Bay is the sex kitten, 182 00:12:54.539 --> 00:13:00.929 unapologetically original and just out there with who she is, and I needed, 183 00:13:01.090 --> 00:13:05.090 I craved more of that, and stepping into her helped me to become more 184 00:13:05.250 --> 00:13:09.730 sexual and aware of that power within myself too. It's interesting that you say 185 00:13:09.769 --> 00:13:13.120 that, because one of the things that drag has helped me with is my 186 00:13:13.600 --> 00:13:16.159 body image and sexuality. In the way I kind of you know, always 187 00:13:16.200 --> 00:13:22.360 knew I was gay, but one day that okay about the womb, I 188 00:13:22.519 --> 00:13:28.870 just I knew, I knew, but when you're black and plus size end 189 00:13:28.950 --> 00:13:33.629 gay, it's the world will tell you that you're undesirable and a lot of 190 00:13:33.710 --> 00:13:37.149 ways and it's not a thing where, like someone will come with you be 191 00:13:37.269 --> 00:13:39.710 like hey, you're ugly. It's like you don't see yourself representing to media 192 00:13:39.830 --> 00:13:43.980 and when you look at beauty ads, you don't see someone that looks like 193 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:50.139 you, you know. So when I was able to transform into this glamorous 194 00:13:50.179 --> 00:13:54.139 goddess, if I may say so myself, it really did help me become 195 00:13:54.340 --> 00:13:56.570 more confident in, you know, my dating life, in the fact that 196 00:13:56.769 --> 00:14:00.210 it's like, I know I'm pretty, honey, I know it now. 197 00:14:00.250 --> 00:14:03.090 I did not see it before, but and now, like even without all 198 00:14:03.129 --> 00:14:07.409 of it I was, I feel so much better about myself. So, 199 00:14:07.570 --> 00:14:09.559 and what I heard that you just said was that as you step into this 200 00:14:09.639 --> 00:14:13.559 drag performer, you were able to find what your powers were, or what 201 00:14:13.759 --> 00:14:18.039 powers you had inside of you that weren't being utilized. So it's almost like 202 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:24.000 you find this personal power by stepping into a character exactly, and it gives 203 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:28.990 you the framework for the best version of not yourself, if that big fit. 204 00:14:30.309 --> 00:14:33.509 It's it's like it's like it's not who you are, but it's like 205 00:14:33.870 --> 00:14:37.029 this is what it could be. You know, if this is a amper 206 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:41.220 amplified, it is too, but secret self right, and it's the over 207 00:14:41.379 --> 00:14:43.620 amplified version of you. Now in my dead day. Like you know, 208 00:14:43.700 --> 00:14:46.220 you gotta tone it down. You're extra, just not too extra, just 209 00:14:46.299 --> 00:14:54.090 not to but I am still retaining that, that confidence and that are on 210 00:14:54.210 --> 00:14:56.450 that presence. You know that you're talking about magnetize them. They yeah, 211 00:14:56.490 --> 00:15:01.730 yeah, yeah, magnetism or a magnetizing performer. Okay, so where do 212 00:15:01.850 --> 00:15:05.490 you see yourself going? And growing and dragging the future? Definitely growing, 213 00:15:05.529 --> 00:15:11.039 grow, growing and learning and building. You know, I always approach all 214 00:15:11.080 --> 00:15:15.120 of my characters in a beginner's mindset, always looking for something to learn. 215 00:15:15.440 --> 00:15:20.600 And then also I'm in the process and have just gotten a nonprofit organization started 216 00:15:20.720 --> 00:15:26.470 called the MIAs project, where it's going to be a themed Charity Event Company 217 00:15:26.870 --> 00:15:31.149 which is going to provide another safe space for performances GAYLA's fundraising events. So 218 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:37.259 really, really looking into I want to support the arts of Minneapolis as well 219 00:15:37.340 --> 00:15:39.340 as give back in the only way I know how, which is to perform 220 00:15:39.500 --> 00:15:43.460 and have fun doing it. So starting something that's bigger than myself is what 221 00:15:43.539 --> 00:15:46.659 I'm planning to do with my drag career soon. And bias is an acronym 222 00:15:46.700 --> 00:15:50.049 for baby, I'm a star, Behaby, I'm a star, we're all 223 00:15:50.129 --> 00:15:54.129 stars, but to just have that opportunity to to flex that muscle, like 224 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:58.090 you just said. So, out of all the things that you've learned from 225 00:15:58.090 --> 00:16:03.289 being a performer, being an entrepreneur, what do you think are the greatest 226 00:16:03.330 --> 00:16:06.720 strengths or things you've learned that are going to help you achieve these goals? 227 00:16:06.759 --> 00:16:11.559 I like that question. Thank you. I think just really realizing your energy 228 00:16:11.840 --> 00:16:17.440 and what you can bring to other people and being open to receiving that energy 229 00:16:17.519 --> 00:16:19.909 and connection. I think what I've learned the most in the performing of these 230 00:16:19.990 --> 00:16:25.669 characters is that the more you're authentic with not just yourself but other people, 231 00:16:26.389 --> 00:16:29.629 the better and more happy and more bright life is going to be, because 232 00:16:29.629 --> 00:16:33.299 you're not keeping yourself in the shadows, you're actually shining the light that you 233 00:16:33.419 --> 00:16:37.139 should have been all along. I actually was just talking about to Wang Foo 234 00:16:37.340 --> 00:16:41.259 and the no I just I just listen to that one. M Yeah, 235 00:16:41.620 --> 00:16:45.580 so about like larger than life is just the right size. So I am 236 00:16:45.700 --> 00:16:48.330 so excited that you have such a big goal.

I'm going to be empty in baby, I'm a star. 240 00:16:59.690 --> 00:17:03.240 Yeah, do you want to talk about like where, where you're at in 241 00:17:03.279 --> 00:17:04.240 the process?
