Bearded Fruit: An LGBTQ Podcast

The arts, politics and culture through a queer lens. With an eye on how queer identity intersects with race, gender and all of our other identities, we’re having conversations at the crossroads of queerness and the contemporary world.


BF216 - Bearded Fruit Live - Identity as Activism

The first "Bearded fruit: Live!" was recorded live at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Downtown Hartford, Connecticut on February 17, 2017. For our first live show, we invited three really special people to join us: Mark Richards, the reigning Mr CT Bear; Shona Curtis, a queer photographer who’s stunning portrait exhibit “To Be Real” is running through March 10, 2017 at Charter Oak Cultural Center; and Teo Escada, the father of the fabulous House of Escada. Our three guests joined us to discuss identity as activism: how their queer communities engage in queer activism, how they connect their queerness to their other identities, and how being out is, in itself, a form of activism.
