Ep 80 - Gender Fluidity, Drag Queens and Queer Youth
Show Notes

Episode 80 Guest is Jameson Johnson / Ophelia Peaches. Jameson is and has always been Genderfluid. As young as four years old, they were wearing princess dresses and pirate costumes interchangeably without preference. Growing up in Colorado in a low-income, single-parent household as a Domestic Violence survivor, Jameson understands what it is like to be Queer and powerless. At the age of thirteen, Jameson began performing in Drag under the persona of Ophelia Peaches. As one of the first youth Drag artists of this generation, Jameson has found media attention and activism opportunities to uplift fellow Queer youth. Using their platform, Jameson and their mother created a 501c3 named Dragutante featured on a Discovery+ series during Pride Month 2022. Jameson has performed as Ophelia Peaches on Denver's Pride main stage since 2019 and is a public speaker and emcee.

Having received numerous community awards for their activism, Jameson continues to fearlessly use their voice both on and off stage to fight for equity, inclusion, and diversity.
