The Drama Kid (Ep 359 - Funny Girl/David Pevsner)
My guest this week is David Pevsner, writer, actor, and erotic blogger. His book Damn Shame, a memoir of desire, defiance, and show tunes comes out in January (it’s available for pre-order now) and catalogs his adventures on Broadway and on TV, as an escort, and as a naked Tumblr star. It all starts with a kid dancing in secret to Barbra Streisand records.
We’ll have that conversation in a minute. First a reminder to check out my YouTube channel where I post videos about queer pop culture history — I’ve got a new one coming this weekend about how Elvira became a gay icon and the Queen of Halloween. And you can also head over to my Patreon to watch hours of bonus videos featuring stories of queer TV and film history.
And check out my cute little newsletter where I share sneak peeks at what I’m working on at mattbaume.com.
And a big thanks to everyone who supports the Sewers of Paris at Patreon.com/mattbaume. And to everyone who’s left a review on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen.
