Welcome to QuaranTimes, a special series by Mental Note Podcast about the big worlds we inhabit in our suddenly smaller daily lives. Each episode will give a new perspective on mental health, social distancing and coping with isolation.
Our first episode brings us to the digital stage of our favorite drag queen, Eric Dorsa aka Fonda Koxx. We discover the importance of expression even when the audience is invisible.
My name is Eric Dorsa and I live in Chicago, Illinois. I am a drag queen for a cause, using the art of drag and female impersonation to help spread the message of eating disorder recovery in and out of the LGBTQ community. I have learned in recovery that what we have in common with others is what ultimately heals us and builds a stronger community of recovery. We recover together.
I am obsessed with makeup especially special effects makeup
My favorite show is Rupaul’s Drag Race! DUHHHHH
I can lick my own elbow though science insists that this should not be possible.
I get sucked into Pinterest for hours at a time. (no shame)
