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) and TheBaddest 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.

With special guests Shelley Volante, Jaylene Tyme, and Thanks Jem
