Grizzly Kiki | Pop Culture & Interviews With Queer Artists

Grizzly Kiki began in April 2014 as a pop culture and drag-centric podcast hosted by Robert Lechuga & Daniel Silva. We launched with recaps of RuPaul’s Drag Race and other reality programming. Shortly after releasing the first few episodes, we narrowed our focus to create a podcast that was unique in concept and would serve a community near and dear to us: DRAG QUEENS!!!!!!!!!!!!! The podcast is equal parts oral history and good old-fashioned kiki. We found that there were few platforms where Drag and Nightlife Artists could talk about their art and themselves in an open and honest way. Most of what is known about these artists comes from videos posted on the Internet or what they experience in bars and clubs. It was clear that there were stories to be told and shared with the world. Our mission is to create a comfortable and safe environment, where these artists can share their histories and experiences. Ours is a podcast that is meant to serve the drag and nightlife community by capturing the artists’ voices and making them available to the public. Grizzly Kiki is a program for drag enthusiasts, Drag Artists, and everyone in between. Listen and Join the Party!!


Lady Red Couture & Jonny McGovern

Jonny McGovern's career has spanned nearly two decades. From starring in LogoTV's The Big Gay Sketch Show to his podcast, The Gayest of All Time, Jonny has consistently created high quality queer-centric entertainment in an industry that desperately needs it. Jonny's larger than life side-kick on Hey Qween, Lady Red Couture, is a force of nature. She is a fierce Drag Queen, singer, and perfect compliment to Johnny's . Her job is to keep the children in line, as well as making sure Johnny isn't caught out wearing beat up tennis shoes. This Grande Diva extraordinaire is full of heart, beauty, and opulence. Lady Red & Jonny are currently set to premiere the fourth season of their hugely popular show, Hey Qween. The show features interviews and segments with legendary queens & newly minted drag superstars. They have a been a huge inspiration to us and are the benchmark for what drag podcasts and web series should aspire to. The fourth season of Hey Qween premieres on Feb. 15.
