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!!


MoMo Shade

MoMo Shade is a quiet Queen, a nice Queen, and a very Shady Queen. Her name says it all. She's the girl who will not utter a single word, but instead observes everyone around her and speaks when the time is right. This, however, does not apply to her aesthetic or performance style. MoMo loves to tear up the dance floor with her intense numbers, custom couture, and a face that is to die for. No, she's not pumped, people. That's all MoMo! MoMo is one half of a dynamic duo, the other being Aja. During her Grizzly KiKi, Aja brought along MoMo, who provided us with some of the most hilarious commentary we've ever heard. That is another facet of her personality that makes her all the more endearing. She will leave you in stitches with just a few words. Listen to our interview to get to know this native Brooklyn Queen!! And, like with any couple, Aja is along for the ride to fill in the gaps in MoMo's legendary stories!
