In this week’s episode, Tuck speaks with Kevin Cook (he/him), better known as the glamorous Poison Waters (she/her). One of Portland’s most beloved event hosts, Poison is a co-host at the legendary Darcelle XV Showplace. Topics include:
- Distinguishing between trans women and (male) drag queens.
- Joining the drag scene as a gay black man in the late 1980s.
- Living as one person with two identities, two presentations, and two sets of pronouns.
- Watching LGBTQ visibility and acceptance evolve over the last three decades.
