Welcome to the second episode of Living Myth Magazine Podcast.

Your hosts Anne Honeycutt and Aaron Golden really appreciate you.
This episode features two interviews, a short story and a piece of music created by wonderful creatives.
August is Pride Month in Vancouver, unlike most of the world that does it Pride events in July. Anne and Aaron are proudly not straight and not cis and well, happily “queerdos”
So, this episode is a celebration of all of the great LGBTIA+ creatives in Vancouver!
STORYTELLING WITH DRAG QUEENS!
Candie Tanaka of the International Centre of Arts and Technology along with local Drag Queens Oliv X, Karmella Barr and Amy Grindhouse and our HBIC Anne talk about the phenomenon that is making audiences in Vancouver laugh, cry, and learn about diversity.
Based on NYC’s Famous Drag Queen Story Hour at the Brooklyn Public Library and San Francisco libraries but with a NorthWest Coast flavour! Vancouver’s version of Storytelling with Drag Queens provides 2 different events for all to enjoy. They have monthly adult readings at Cafe Deux Soliel and also offer kid’s shows.
Their next live show will be September 30th. Storytelling with Drag Queens for Kids! will be at the Canadian Memorial United Church and Centre For Peace.
* Content warning – Drag queens have potty mouths, but you should know that already 😉
Our short story this month is Clone Me Baby One More Time! By a frequent contributor to Living Myth Magazine and a proud queer trans woman Holy McCrae and read by another out and proud bisexual woman and local voice actress Callyn Dorval.
TRANS REPRESENTATION IN THE MEDIA AND THE AMAZING STORY OF “THE SWITCH” THE WORLDS FIRST TRANS SITCOM with Amy Fox.
Anne sat down with the creator of The Switch which will be going on sale August 15th. Amy Fox about the show, how creatives can plan for the future of their projects and also how to create the representation one craves in a world where people don’t see who they are in the media they consume.
