Peaches Christ is an American underground drag performer, emcee, filmmaker, and actor who is worshipped as a queer icon in their hometown of San Francisco where they got their first break performing in Heklina’s legendary Tranny Shack back in 1996. One of their many life events since then was the San Francisco de Young Museum actually honored them with a “Decade of Peaches Christ Retrospective”
Peaches is particularly known for their love of horror …the camper the better…having once even directed a star-studded indie slasher movie All About Evil.
We caught up with Peaches on the eve of them taking one of their most famous roles of Mommie Queerest on a mini UK Tour with Heklina. Underneath this wickedly funny parody the show also shows Peaches’s real respect for the cult status of the original movie Charismatic with a real passion for their craft, Peaches is, as always, a sheer joy to talk with
