This week also we have the soundboard on our side of the table, we run rampant with soundbites. We jump into a ki about trains, drag, and more. Eventually we get to talking about our week. Viki goes to Afropunk weekend and almost met a ton of artists, enjoyed some “festival candy”, & meets a peculiar character. We also dive into storytime, with that time 1 of our gal pals buys some questionable “candy”. Ari has an novela of a night karaoke, a Haus of Kiki photoshoot at Central Park & some drag shows together, and spends some time with a gentleman caller.
