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!!



Day Camp

"Camp is...the love of the exaggerated, the 'off,' of things-being-what-they-are-not." ~ Susan SontagOn this episode, we bring you our review of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's latest Costume Institute exhibition, "Camp: Notes on Fashion." Drawing inspiration from Susan Sontag's seminal 1964 essay, "Notes on Camp," the exhibition explored the ways in which designers have employed camp sensibility in the creation of their haute couture garments & accessories. While it is the first Costume Institute exhibition to explicitly center homosexuality in the presentation of the works, it is a dated conservation that generally excludes the contributions of Queer POCs. Our discussion of the exhibition focuses on this erasure, our favorite pieces, and a lesson in etiquette for museum visitors.We also discuss the most recent attacks on reproductive rights, which are proposing the implementation of the most oppressive restrictions since the early 20th century.
