Tony Award nominee Cailtin Kinnunen joins me on Zoom to discuss her big move to New York City, the benefits of being homeschooled, how she celebrated her sixteenth birthday, & how she and I became friends. We also trade stories and compare moments of panic onstage, discuss the familial bonds she built in THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, how THE PROM became the gift that keeps on giving, and how she has used her time this year to reflect and recalibrate after a busy and hectic 2019.

"I have a Queery about...Visibility" ft. Caitlin Kinnunen and Izzy McCalla

Play
Read more

"What does ideal visibility look like?" "How does ideal visibility lead to more freedom to explore gender expression and sexual identity?" "Why do bisexuals need visibility?" "Why was The Prom more important than people realized?"

On this episode, I have a Prom reunion with the two incredible leading ladies--Caitlin Kinnunen (she/her) and Izzy McCalla (she/her)--who made national television history when they shared the first same-sex kiss in The Prom's performance on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Queer stories are increasingly becoming more visible in all entertainment mediums and that is extremely important considering how long the Queer community was only exposed to "straight" narratives or stereotypical portrayals of Queer characters. However, sometimes people can see all this increased visibility as a check in a box and not feel the need to keep fighting for it to be better. Sometimes people, even the most "progressive," can fail to acknowledge the privileges that come with living in a liberal bubble. Caitlin, Izzy, and I talk about why The Prom was so important because not only did it help so many people, including themselves, feel comfortable in their sexual identity, but it also showed many living in these bubbles that these stories about overcoming adversity, even in a more progressive world, still exist. We also discuss the importance of visibility and acceptance of all sexual identities; too often Queer people are defined by the relationships they are in and not by what they say they are. We talk about the idea of bi-erasure and how gender and sexual profiling can cause Queer people to struggle to accept themselves in a world that tells them what they are instead of listening to what they say they are.

#226 - Queer Characters (The Prom, feat. Caitlin Kinnunen)

Play

Last season, The Prom leapt onto the Broadway scene, delighting audiences with an original queer-themed musical just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. In The Prom, teenage lesbian Emma Nolan is banned from attending her high school prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa. When a group of narcissistic Broadway performers hear the news, they travel to Indiana to help Emma and pick up some good press along the way. While this premise sounds quite humorous — which it is, The Prom also moved audiences with its great heart and depth. 

This week, we asked Caitlin Kinnunen, who received a Tony nomination for originating the role of Emma, into the studio to chat about her experience as a queer actress bringing this role to life. In addition to The Prom, Caitlin has performed on Broadway in Spring Awakening and The Bridges of Madison County. Here’s our conversation…
