Golden Girls (hence the tattoo and her name, a nod to Sophia’s old retirement home, Shady Pines).By day, Scott is a writer/performer/podcaster who, yes, also happens to be obsessed with the Golden Girls.
In fact, they’ve got a whole podcast about it: Out On The Lanai, which they co-host with television writer Kerri Doherty. Out On The Lanai—produced by drag royalty Alaska and Willam’s Moguls Of Media network—is the premier podcast dedicated entirely to Blanche Devereaux, Rose Nylund, Dorothy Zbornak, and Sophia Petrillo.Actually, Out On The Lanai is gearing up to throw a party and invite everyone they know with a live show in Los Angeles at the Dynasty Typerwriter (and livestreamed, so you can watch from your lanai) on September 24.
It’s set to feature the aforementioned Alaska and the brilliant Eliot Glazer, and Sadie Pines says it’ll be the “Golden Girls meet-up every fan needs.” With drag, comedy, trivia, prizes, and more, the massive celebration is their way of saying—what else?—”thank you for being a friend.”But, before the big show, Queerty had the pleasure of traveling down the road and back again with Sadie Pines as the latest guest in our rapid-fire Q&A series, Dishin’ It.
In our chat, the queen reflects on the movie that showed her the future—to the point that it was almost scary—the live theater nude scene that made a big impression, and the Golden Girls episode she considers to be the gayest of them all.A post shared by Out on the Lanai (@outonthelanaiofficial)Is there a piece of media—whether a movie, TV series, book, album, video game, etc…—that you consider a big part of your own coming-out journey, or that has played an important role in your understanding of queerness?
