Queer Women on the Oscars, Kamala Harris, and Comedy

Queer Women on the Oscars, Kamala Harris, and Comedy

Stand up comic Gloria Bigelow shares her most extreme experiences of performing to lesbian crowds. 

On the latest episode of The Advocates podcast, the show dedicated to LGBTQ issues across generations, host Tracy E. Gilchrist is joined by co-host Kimberly Eaton and stand-up comic Gloria Bigelow. They discuss the queer nominations at the Oscars, the recent Bryan Singer accusations, the implications of the Supreme Court letting the transgender military ban go into effect, and their personal excitement around Kamala Harris announcing her run for presidency.

Next, special guest Gloria Bigelow shares why she started doing comedy (spoiler: for a girl). Then she relives some of her most extreme stand-up experiences, including attending the Dinah during an earthquake and trying to outrun a hurricane while on a lesbian cruise. You've got to hear it to believe it. Check out her comedy in the Out on Stage show streaming on Dekko.
