By day, Ed Popil worked as a telemarketer in Rochester, New York. By night, he transformed into drag queen Mrs. Kasha Davis, a 1960s era housewife and an homage to Ed’s own mother.
After seven years of auditioning to compete on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Ed was finally cast and his entertainment industry journey began at age 44.
Workhorse Queen tells the true story behind Mrs. Kasha Davis and explores the complexities of reality television’s impact on queer performance culture by looking at its impact on local drag communities.
