Drag artist, cultural icon, and general good egg – Cheddar Gorgeous – joins Climate Curious to share why drag artistry is the perfect trojan horse for climate action. Over to Cheddar to share why drag is an incredible medium to one, create spectacle and grab awareness, and two, disrupt the master narratives that dictate our society.

Quotes from the episode:

🐴 “I always think of drag and as a bit of a Trojan horse. We tease you in. With an entertaining prospect, without enmeshment, and then we like to hit you with something maybe you’re not expecting.”

🤝 “Drag at its best drag at its best builds connection, to be a place where people can come together.”

🎭 “Drag can disrupt the master narratives that dictate our society. I love drag that makes you look at yourself and look at the world in a different way. And that can be deployed in all sorts of exciting ways.”

💖 “An activist is a very special kind of person. And the only attention they get is very negative attention, usually.”

🛡 “Ironically, I think I actually face more abuse out of drag than I ever do in drag. I think people are a little scared to confront a seven foot tall, bald, human-looking creature, with sclera lenses. It’s quite a good armour.”

💌 “It’s in forgiveness that you will really find the drive for action with one another. Because we have to work with one another.”
