GayVN Best Newcomer Derek Kage Guests on ‘And Now We Drink’

Host Matt Slayer welcomes adult star Derek Kage for a wide-ranging discussion on the new episode of the iconic And Now We Drink podcast.

And Now We Drink is like “the conversation at the end of the bar” featuring your favorite writers, comedians, musicians, actors and adult film stars.  No topic is off-limits as Slayer and his guests delve into their personal experiences, sharing shameless stories that make you laugh, cringe, and maybe even blush a bit.  Listen in to discover more about their unique experiences and perspectives on sex, relationships, and life. 


On the spirited, thirst-quenching, and sometimes political And Now We Drink Episode 340, Slayer sits down with Alabama’s own Derek Kage, fresh off his wins as XBIZ Gay Performer of the Year and both Best Newcomer and Best Actor at the GayVN Awards.  Bonding over bourbon, they touch on a variety of topics: from basking in newfound career success to personal struggles including overcoming toxic relationships.  Kage shares his history with burning ambition and the trials he faced while forging his path to happiness and acclaim in the adult industry. Despite his triumphs, he retains a sense of humility and a cautious approach to his newfound fame, knowing too well the pitfalls of arrogance. 

The episode also delves into the broader social issues surrounding the LGBTQ+ community, highlighting the importance of authentic representation, overcoming prejudice, and the importance of personal journeys in shaping who we are.  Anecdotes of wild experiences at Folsom Street Fair offer a glimpse into the diverse and vibrant culture of gay communities.  Whether it’s exchanging travel tales, dissecting societal misconceptions, or just sharing life philosophies over drinks, Slayer and Kage generate an engaging conversation worth the listen, weaving insight with a healthy dose of humor.

“It was my and my liver’s pleasure to speak to Matt on ANWD for almost 3 hours,” Kage commented.  “We discussed butt stuff, trans activism, and closeted conservatives (among many other things) while enjoying fine bourbon and rye. I hope the fans enjoy it just as much as I did.”
