Oscars Are So Queer, the Trans Ban is Trash, Let's Laugh with Stand-Up Comic Gloria Bigelow
On the latest episode of The Advocates podcast, the show dedicated to LGBTQ issues across generations, hosts Tracy E. Gilchrist is joined by co-host Kimberly Eaton and stand-up comic Gloria Bigelow. They talk about the queer nominations at the Oscars, the recent Bryan Singer accusations, the implications of The Supreme Court upholding a transgender military ban, and their personal excitement around Kamala Harris announcing her run for presidency.
Then, special guest Gloria Bigelow shares why she started comedy (spoiler: for a girl). Then she relives some of her most extreme stand-up experiences, including attending Dinah Shore during an earthquake, and trying to our run a hurricane while on a lesbian cruise line. You've got to hear it to believe it.
