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.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 was jam-packed with controversy, spectacle, & high-whore drag. 14 Queens entered the Werk Room, but only 4 were left to battle it out for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar: Asia O’Hara, Aquaria, Eureka O’Hara, & Kameron Michaels.

Family Reunion or Witch Hunt?

With only a week left before the crowing of a new "America's Next Drag Superstar," all 14 Queens from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 returned for an emotional reunion.

To describe the reunion as rocky would be an understatement. Wounds were still fresh, the hurt was real, and tensions were high. GuRuPaul took center stage as a self-righteous, holier-than-thou, unqualified life coach. Her actions exacerbated the conflict between The Vixen & Eureka O'Hara and bringing Asia O'Hara to tears. Barely 20 minutes in, The Vixen leaves the stage, having become the target of a savage witch hunt at the hands of "Mama Ru," a role she continuously falls short of fulfilling.

The complete disregard for the mental health & well-being of the contestants this season has been a hard pill to swallow. In the words of Jasmine Masters, "RuPaul's Drag Race done fucked up drag..."

Are Rhinestones & Sequins Glitteriffic?

On Episode 8 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, only 7 Queens remain.

This week, it's all about Cher. Mama Ru took us back to Season 2 with the "Slap Out of It" mini-challenge; the girls had to perform in another musical maxi-challenge, "Cher: The Unauthorized Rusical"; & the "Glitterific" runway was full of glitz, glam, & confusion. Is it glitterific if there's no glitter?

On the Runway, the 13 Queens boogie oogie oogied in their finest fringe!

“Are You A Good Witch Or A Bad Witch?”

On Episode 11 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, only 5 Queens remain.

For this “Resting Brunch Face” mini-challenge, the Top 5 put pancakes in edible drag and served them to Cheyenne Jackson. Asia’s “Panquisha” won her Cheyenne’s heart and a spa day on Rodeo Drive.

The maxi-challenge & runway forced the Queens to tap into their Inner Saboteurs. Each girl created two looks/characters inspired by their best and worst qualities. What could possibly go wrong when confronting your inner demons while sleep deprived?

The split personalities in the Werk room & runway let us in on the Queens’ inner monologues and deepest insecurities. Aquaria/Sabatina stole the show with a solid narrative and flawless style. However, Miz Cracker/Miz Crumbs didn't make the cut and we said goodbye to another New York Queen.

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.

Sissy That Walk!

On Episode 6 of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 4, the 4 eliminated Queens lipsync against the remaining Queens in an All Stars "LaLaPaRuza" for the chance to return to the competition. With All Stars rules suspended, it's anybody's guess which girls will stay to shantay another day!

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.

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.

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!

Here Lies The Dearly Departed Lady Bunny :-(

On Episode 5 of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 4, the top 6 Queens have to deliver the rulogy at the funeral roast of the legendary Lady Bunny. With the number of contestants quickly dwindling, this main challenge was a make it or break it moment. Three of the girls nailed the roast, while the others were barely warmed up.

The runway theme this week was "Angelic White." The Queens floated down the runway in feathers, rhinestones, and yards upon yards of billowing fabric. For their looks, they drew inspiration from Grecian goddesses, catholic imagery, and Prince!
