Meet the Queens

How it began!

Tiffany and Tom met through another podcast that had a snapchat group (hi hunnieessss). They quickly realized that they lived in the same city and promptly waited six months to meet in real life. They met at Bigham Tavern on Mt. Washington for the first time and hit it off very well.

Through texts following their meet-up they continued their conversation and expressed that they both wanted to start a podcast. Tom’s brother (SHOUT OUT TO ART FOR REAL THO), was working on his own podcast and set up a studio in his house. Tom politely asked Art if he and Tiffany could use it for their podcast.

Tiffany and Tom both listen to many podcasts about RuPaul’s Drag Race so it only made sense for that to be what their podcast is about.

Two weeks after they first met IRL Tom and Tiffany recorded the first episode of It Bears Repeating… another RuPaul’s Drag Race recap show. It was only the second time they’ve ever chatted IRL.

TL;DR DESTINY!

OK, but why the name?

Well, we knew that we weren’t the first people to do a podcast dedicated to RuPaul’s Drag Race, so obviously if you’re listening to multiple shows you’re going to get different perspective. Tiffany and I don’t listen to our other RPDR podcasts until after we’ve recorded our own so what we say is unique to us and if we hear it elsewhere after it’s not like we copied them it’s just shared thoughts. We both love Bianca Del Rio, and this is one of her famous lines of the show!

Your Hosts!

Tom (aka Hautemess Tom)

Tom is the son of Art and Judy, brother to Art and dogfather of Riott. He’s in $1000s of debt because he decided to go to college for seven years and walk out with a degree in general studies. When he’s not podcasting, he’s creating fierce looks on his YouTube channel and probably listening to another RuPaul’s Drag Race podcast. If he wasn’t a part-time everything right now, he dreams of being a pop star. He’s never done anything to make that happen, but is still delusional that it will happen some day.

Age: 28

Pronouns: Doesn’t Matter, Likes them ALL!

Favorite Music: Marina and the Diamonds, St. Vincent and Beyonce

Top 3 Queens: Bianca Del Rio, Tatianna and Detox

If I had to lip sync for my life on Drag Race I’d want it to be: “Primadonna” by Marina and the Diamonds.

Tiffany

CurrentProfPic

Tiffany (she/her/they/them) is a 32 year old Pittsburgh native who has wanted to get up into the podcast gig for a long time! Thus far, they have managed to: get multiple tattoos, not fully graduate college but accrue 75% of two different diplomas, complete a lot of therapy, attempt various careers such as selling cars and being a preschool teacher, diagnosed bipolar II, and became a licensed esthetician. Tiffany is married to Josh (sweetest goth-punk and definitive pizza boy in all of PA). Tiffany and Josh happily co-parent three cats named Pete, Olimar, and Bean.

You can catch Tiffany playing video games, reading, napping, or generally being as  comfortable as possible.

Favorite music: POP & 90s alternative

Top 3 Queens: Alaska, Willam, Bob the Drag Queen

If I had to lip sync for my life on Drag Race, I would choose “…Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears.

    • Hey Anita!!! Things are going! I rejoined Facebook and tried to add you, but Facebook makes everything impossible anymore. My life is pretty boring and average right now, but I guess that’s OK! How are you!? How’s Illinois?!
