14: Peggy Hill Meets a Drag Queen

 

“The Peggy Horror Picture Show” (January 28, 2007)

When Peggy Hill mistakenly shops at a store for drag queens, she gets mistaken for one. And while that might seem like hokey sitcom setup, this final-season King of the Hill episode manages some real emotions and some perspectives on gender you wouldn’t have seen on TV at the time. All that said, its depiction of drag queens is one that most viewers today could call out as being… a little inaccurate, but that just shows you how far American pop culture has come in how it differentiates drag as a performance and gender as a living expression.
