Ever since the Stonewall Riots ignited the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement in 1969, most major cities have had Pride Parades until the Covid Pandemic of 2020 where it was all put on pause.
This year will be the first Pride Parade we’ve had in two years, and while we are still concerned over Covid, there’s now also the worry over violence, like recently in Idaho where a van full of Fascist militia were ready to harm people celebrating Pride.
Joining us today is our pal Jack Ryan, the host of The 10% Percent Show that ran on Chicago Cable Access in the late 80s and early 90s, to take a look at the changing face of Pride.
Fascists are now more critical of drag queens than Aubrey O’Day reading Alyssa Edwards for her perfume ad in Season 5 of Drag Race (look it up). But is all this commotion just a distraction from the January 6 hearings on the Republicans’ sloppy attempt at a political coup to end democracy?
Can’t these furry horned right wing fascists sashay away?
Today comedian Dan Cass, who sees the January 6th hearings as some of the best theater, joins us to make sense of the storm cloud of madness brewing.
You’ve probably heard the idea that orgasms can bring about world peace, but isn’t that a bit wishful thinking? Or is there more to this idea that your sexual energy can be a force for good?

This year marks the first Pride celebration for many folks since the Covid shutdown. As we prepare to brave the crowds and celebrate sexual and gender diversity, we’ve noticed that the flags, words and even the people who show up for Pride celebrations have changed.
Today the reliably hilarious Matt Brown, who has the spirit of Betty Davis trapped in the body of a young black comedian, joins us to look back on the changing face of Pride and the intergenerational challenges LGBTQ+ folks face.
June is Pride Month, where folks all around the world celebrate the Stonewall riots and the birth of the modern gay rights movement with parades, parties, dollar well drinks, and lots and lots of plastic rainbow striped merchandise.
Today we’re take a look at how we learned to stop worrying and love rainbow capitalism- the insatiable need to sell us LGBTQ themed merchandise even when it comes from businesses who typically fights against LGBTQ Equality.
