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!!


Tales Of The City

"The worst of times in San Francisco was still better than the best of times somewhere else.” ~ Armistead Maupin

On this episode, we review the "Tales of the City" reboot on Netflix. The "limited series" is the fourth time Armistead Maupin's bestselling books have been adapted for the screen. In this ten episode series, contemporary issues facing the Q.U.I.LT.B.A.N.G. community are explored honestly & openly. With 28 Barbary Lane serving as the epicenter for most of the the character's lives & stories, the viewer is transported to an Oz-like world each time the wooden door at the top of the steps is opened. In our review, we discuss what we liked the most & least, as well as the importance of the show's use of a diverse cast of Q.U.I.LT.B.A.N.G. actors. WARNING - there are major spoilers ahead, so skip this episode if you haven't watched or finished the series.

We also talk about HBO's new Wigstock documentary, "Wig"; the short film, "Happy Birthday Marsha" on Amazon Prime; & our plans to attend the Reclaim Pride Coalition's upcoming Queer Liberation March & Rally on June 30.
