We’ve come a long way baby since the Stonewall Riots which sparked the modern LGBT rights movement and even though it’s important to remember how it all began, these days Pride is mostly a party, and that’s ok.

But how you celebrate can be just as important as what you celebrate.

Today, Colette Gregory, a she-larious strong black woman joins us to discuss how to navigate your Pride season festivities and not be ground down into the dirt by the end of it.

Listen as we chat with Collette about why sunscreen is so important, why feather boas are sticky beasts in hot weather and the best way to cop a feel from the hot guy at the parade.

Colette is co-producing and co-starring in Shade: An Actually Diverse Comedy Show at Steppenwolf’s 1700 Theater. The show includes performances by Shannon Noll, Peter S Kim, and Dina Nina Martinez and will be happening one night only Thursday JUN 15, so if you miss it, don’t come crying to me.

  2. Thanks for having a very relevant and timely conversation with Colette Gregory about racism, sexism, homophobia, and anti-immigrant sentiment among audiences in comedy shows (and in the arts in general). Kudos to Colette for doing this important work!
