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!!


Jiggly Gets Personal

Jiggly Caliente is a drag queen and reality tv star. Since appearing on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 4, Jiggly has traveled the world, developed a strong fan base, and even released original music. She is no longer a local New York performer, but a talented diva who has brought her art to the world. The hardest part of being a public figure has been the constant demand for personal information, especially regarding her gender identity. For years, Jiggly has been bullied on every social media platform to go on record about her gender, as if she is a commodity that fans and critics can own. With the dawn of a new year and her career growing by leaps and bounds, Jiggly has decided to tell her story on her own terms. Jiggly is a drag queen and reality tv star, but most importantly, she is a proud transwoman. In this interview, she shares her journey with us and the road she has traveled to become the woman she truly is, Bianca.
