Artist Beatrice Thomas performs in drag as soulful death-metal diva Black Benatar at Drag Queen Story Time at the San Francisco Public Library — and all over the Bay.
She’ll be hosting Black Benatar’s Black Magic Cabaret as part of So Soul San Francisco at Brava Theater this week.
She and acro-dancer Toni Cannon came to KALW’s studios to talk with Jen Chien about what they have in store for audiences.
"I want to share that with people, I don't want to feel further away from people. I think coming from a marginalized place, you already feel kind of apart from people — so I'm interested in bringing our audience closer."
Note: Beatrice Thomas is an alumnus of KALW's Audio Academy.
