Welcome to The Vanity Project, hosted by Drag queen Vanity von Glow. This series will showcase engaging discussions between a drag queen and unlikely guests from the worlds of entertainment, media and politics. It will juxtapose the laughs we all know and expect from a drag queen, with more thoughtful, engaging discussions and insight.
A reigning queen of Soho, Vanity is one of the UK's most recognisable cabaret stars, famed for her lively shows at the piano. Being a creative of the nightlife, Vanity is also an advocate for personal freedom, free speech, and radical tolerance. She has caused a stir with appearances on panel discussions for the BBC, Sky News, Byline TV and more. VVG believes in tackling ideas rather than people, and prides herself on taking time to consider all points of view. Guests at The Vanity Project will be encouraged to relax, be themselves and express their truth.
The Vanity Project began life in front of a live audience in Covent Garden's glamorous hClub in 2018 featuring guests such as satirist Jonathan Pie, journalist Dan Wooton, and black community activist and performer Sadie Sinner. Now Vanity is exchanging the live audience for the intimacy of a podcast. Performers are known for being talkers, but this queen is also a great listener. In a cultural moment where it feels like everyone is shouting at one another, we offer you a classic innuendo: it is time to go in deeper with Vanity von Glow.
Themes range from wellness/mindfulness, human rights, youth culture, the LGBT+ experience, politics and more, with guests bringing their own themes and experiences to the podcast.
