Glyn Fussell, the founder of LGBTQ+ collective Sink The Pink, has revealed details about his debut podcast series, ‘Drag Queen’s Den’.
His first big solo venture outside of Sink the Pink, the podcast will welcome famous drag queen guests (Michelle Visage, Jacqui Potato, Jodie Harsh, Jamie Campbell) as well as self-proclaimed ‘Drag Addicts’ (Little Mix’s Jade Thirwell, Spice Girls’ Melanie C, Years and Years’ Olly Alexander, Sam Smith and many more).
Capping off each episode will be ‘Dragony Aunts’ – where BBC Radio 1 presenters including Nick Grimshaw, Greg James and Clara Amfo get the opportunity to ask the questions they always wanted to know about drag but were too afraid to ask. Launching on BBC Sounds, ‘Drag Queen’s Den’ episodes will launch every Monday from 7th January and will air on BBC Radio 1 from January 13th.
Speaking of the podcast launch, Glyn said: “This is the biggest dream come true for me, I have always been the HUGEST Radio 1 fan, I’m so excited and honoured to bring you all into my world. UK drag is WORLD class and I can’t wait to share all our secrets with you.”
