The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 151 – Liberal Girls & Drag Queens


Jan 16, 2023

What’s behind the rising reputation of drag queens and drag
reveals in America? Why is half the viewers of RuPaul’s Drag
Race
now composed of younger liberal ladies? How has the drag
subculture, initially meant as a frivolous and self-consciously
synthetic deconstruction of masculinity, paradoxically grow to be one
of progressivism’s most potent symbols of earnest and genuine
self-expression?

Darel Paul, professor of political science at Williams School,
joins the podcast to debate his latest First Issues essay
“Drag Queens”. Trying to reply the questions above, he brings
forth insights in regards to the relation between the LGBT motion,
“wokeness” and America’s largely female-driven therapeutic
tradition.
