Grizzly Kiki began in April 2014 as a pop culture and drag-centric podcast hosted by Robert & Daniel. The podcast is equal parts oral history and good old-fashioned kiki. We’ve found that there were few platforms where queer artists could talk about their work and themselves in an open and honest way. Our mission is to create a comfortable and safe environment, where these artists can share their histories and experiences. Ours is an intersectional podcast that is meant to serve the queer community by capturing artists’ voices and making them available to the public. Grizzly Kiki is a program for drag enthusiasts, queer artists, and everyone in between. Listen and Join the Party!

You exist in a space and place that others in the past only dreamed of..you quit discussing drag race and all these other non-poc podcasts rejoiced. I understand taking a break, mental health is so important. But, don’t hand it over that easily. If you’re passionate about drag then do mini-episodes because I love your opinion. But, don’t quit..refresh and come back.

These are the kind of people who say Ellen is a bad person because she can “agree to disagree”. It’s called being an adult and clearly these people don’t know what this is. They’d rather plaster some type of extra privilege on her. Well here’s your 1-star! And unsubscribe.

All T. All Trade!

On Episode 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, 6 Queens still remain after last week's double save.

This week, the mini-challenge has the girls modeling for RuPaul's newest fragrance, "Trade." Eureka slayed the competition with her flawless John Candy illusion & gets to pick the queens' maxi-challenge partners.

For the maxi-challenge & runway, the Top 6 drag up Social Media Influencers & stomp the runway as a family. Somehow, Cynthia Lee Fontaine snuck back into the competition, masquerading as Frankie Grande!

This episode had us in stitches & left us in tears. RuPaul was in rare form, Miz Cracker FINALLY won a maxi-challenge/runway, and Monét X. Change's elimination was heartbreaking.

Joining us is New York's Plus Size Barbie, Jiggly Caliente!

Make It A Double!

On Episode 9 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, only 6 Queens remain.

This week, the "Pants Down Bottoms Up" mini-challenge recalled challenges from past seasons. The queens had to rely on their memory to match up Rounderbum (a.k.a. Lumpybum) underwear designs worn by the Pit Crew. It also marked the first time a trans man - Laith Ashley - was a member of the Pit Crew.

The maxi-challenge had the girls perform in "Breastworld," a parody of HBO's hit series, "Westworld." It was very "Fantasy Island" meets "The Jetsons" meets lackluster writing & confusing directing. However, the Queens did what they could with the material provided.

The Silver Foxy runway theme had the Queens gave us a glimpse of where they would be 50 years from now. Some withstood the ravages of aging, while others were selling fanny packs in the DragCon parking lot.

Joining us from Los Angeles is well-known top, Meatball!

No Es Pinchy Queen, Pinche!

Pinche Queen is a beautiful hairy drag monster. A Latina from Arizona, she moved to L.A. right after high school and developed a love for makeup while working as a P.A. on Hollywood sets. Her first night out in drag was at the Boulet Brothers' infamous party/competition, Dragula. While she didn't win that, her drag career started that night..and she hasn't looked back since. When the Boulets were casting for Dragula Season 1, Pinche was hand selected and competed for the title of the World's First Drag Supermonster!

We're so excited to finally have Pinche on Grizzly KiKi. We chat about growing up in Arizona, re-discovering her Mexican roots, Dragula, DragCon NYC, & much more!

"Realize that bodies are only a fraction of who we are" ~ Gabe Moses

Jupiter Velvet stole a spaceship & crash-landed on Earth, seeking to be an "average" American girl. However, she is anything but average. Jupiter is a complex and multi-layered character and performer, drawing her inspiration from Patrick Nagel, the Memphis Design Group and, of course, Lizzie McGuire!

Jupiter is also a fierce advocate for body positivity and trans-acceptance. A member of the Queer Scene in Miami's Wynwood District, Jupiter uses her visibility to break down pre-conceived notions of what drag should look like & confronts those who believe that "passable" is the ultimate compliment for a trans woman.

Jupiter chatted with us as she was putting the finishing touches on her look for Bushwig 2018. We discussed gender identity; her experiences growing up queer and Latinx; and the Indiegogo campaign for the documentary, "Emergence," which explores gender and drag through the profiles of six of Miami's queer performers.

During the premiere, the Queens had to hold their own in photos with past Drag Race contestants; Miley Cyrus was sent undercover into the Werk Room; and Silky Nutmeg Ganache gave us reality show gold as she vied for the attention of every camera. For the first runway, the Girls had to create looks based on the contents of steamer trunks "belonging" to Queens from previous seasons.

It's team "Don't Funk It Up" against team "Everybody Say Love," with the original Henny herself, Stacy Layne Matthews, taking center stage. One group nails it, while the other is a bit disjointed.

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.

Monét X. Change Broke The Runway!

On Episode 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 4, the Queens embrace their inner Jersey girls and whip out the leopard print as they enter Judge Michele Visage's courtroom on "Jersey Justice." While most of the Queens turned it out and made us laugh, one barely elicited a chuckle.

The runway theme this week was "Swerves and Curves: Padded for the Gawds." With a theme as open to interpretation as this, there were extreme silhouettes, deconstructed couture, and pop culture references on the runway. Not all the girls' looks may have been obvious, but Monique Heart & Manila Luzon won the race as they swerved into first place with their dangerous curves!

The runway theme this week was "LaLaPaRuza Eleganza." As nebulous as Ru's mile-high coifs, the theme was open to interpretion...WIDE OPEN. The looks were a mixed bag of pure genius and mediocrity, with some girls pulling out all the stops and others pulling from the back of their closets.

The Privilege Of Agreeing To Disagree

Was It An Act Of Kindness Or Class Solidarity?

On this episode, we discuss the recent controversy surrounding Ellen Degeneres attending a Dallas Cowboys game with former President, George W. Bush. After a photo of them and their spouses went viral on Twitter, Ellen addressed the widespread criticism in a 4-minute speech on her talk show. However, it was more misdirection than anything else. Ellen casually dismissed the gravity of the issue by saying "I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have" & "When I say, 'be kind to one another,' I don't only mean the people that think the same way that you do." With just those two sentences, it is painfully obvious that Ellen is out of touch & has used her wealth & class to attain the privilege to agree to disagree.

"Determining what obscene, indecent and profane mean can be difficult, depending on who you talk to." ~ The Federal Communications Commission

On this episode, we tackle the FCC's nebulous stance on what is too obscene for network television. Following our discussion about Hallow Eve's floorshow look from episode 5 of Dragula season 3, many of our listeners reached out to remind us that the FCC prohibits the use or simulation of menstrual blood in television programs, commercials, or print ads. With that in mind, we did some research into the matter and decided to share our findings. It was no surprise to us that the "regulation" is outdated, leads to misinformation, and is rooted in misogyny.

Seasonal Affective Disorder and our continued adventures with hair bleaching are on the agenda as well, and we share what we're most excited about this week: Cabronas y Chingonas' "2 Fat 2 Brave" with Favy Fav & Eva Arreguin; Safiya Nygaard's YouTube Channel; and Ta-Osh Designs' inclusive range of nude fabrics.

After seeing Lizzo live in concert at Radio City, we were left inspired to live out loud more than ever before. Not only is she an amazing talent, but her energy and message are genuine. With that in mind, Robert decided to venture over to the blonde side, and proved that blondes - even when tinted silver - DO have more fun!

In addition to our hair dyeing adventures, we also chat about DragCon NY; catch up on Dragula Season 3; and discuss our most recent movie-watching experiences!

We also share a listener email, so keep them coming!

Thoughts, Feelings, & Fupas!

On this episode, we welcome Eva Arrequin, co-host of the De Colores Radio podcast & a member of the De Colores Collective. A North Texas native, Eva uses her voice to enrich the lives of other POCs through the De Colores Collective's gatherings, workshops, and podcast. Since 2016, the events she coordinates with her fellow DCC members, Patricia Arreguin & Rafa Tamayo, have become a highlight of the Oak Cliff Cultural Center's programming.

During our conversation with Eva, we discuss growing up in the South; the importance of adequate mental health services for POCs; how to avoid cultural appropriation when being intersectional; and her role as Robert's style icon!

Don’t you dare rollover

You exist in a space and place that others in the past only dreamed of..you quit discussing drag race and all these other non-poc podcasts rejoiced. I understand taking a break, mental health is so important. But, don’t hand it over that easily. If you’re passionate about drag then do mini-episodes because I love your opinion. But, don’t quit..refresh and come back.

These are the kind of people who say Ellen is a bad person because she can “agree to disagree”. It’s called being an adult and clearly these people don’t know what this is. They’d rather plaster some type of extra privilege on her. Well here’s your 1-star! And unsubscribe.
