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!!


Feel Like A Lady: Monét X. Change

On "Feel Like A Lady," we discover what brings a Queen to life and activates her Drag! Monét X. Change just recently joined New York's Drag Union and uses her membership card to carve out the fiercest contours in the city! Our time with Monét covered more ground than any other "Feel Like A Lady" before hers. We KiKi'd about how she transitioned into doing drag full time, the best ways to paint on brows, and her fashions. Running into Monét on any given night is a visual delight. She gives you face, body, looks, and lips for days!! Oh, and she's also Miss Hell's Kitchen 2015. Listen to our interview with Monét to get a crash course in how to make being a Drag Queen a career and keep your art fresh look after look!
