In this week’s episode of the Gay City News podcast “Thank You For Coming Out,” creator and host Dubbs Weinblatt (they/ them/ theirs) welcomes Jessica Henderson (she/ her/ hers), a New York City stand-up, birthed from a Jamaican military father and a mad scientist chemist mother. Jessica has taken her colorful childhood and put it into a half-hour called “40 Acres and a Strap: My life After Slavery and Journey Towards Queerness.” You can also see her doing stand-up at Littlefield, Upright Citizens Brigade, Union Hall, and the Duplex, or on her webseries, “Growing Down,” on YouTube.
As queer people, we are constantly coming out, and each coming out story is unique in its blend of humor, heartache, worry, and wonder. “Thank You For Coming Out,” inspired by Dubbs’ beloved live comedy show of the same name, pairs them as host with lesbian, gay, trans, bi, non-binary, and more members of the queer community to discuss their coming out stories.
Listen in to our ninth incredible journey into the LGBTQ communities’ vulnerable and often hilarious stories of coming out.
Presented by Gay City News, “Thank You For Coming Out” is one of the podcast offerings of Schneps Broadcasting, which also includes “Power Women” hosted by Schneps Media president and publisher Victoria Schneps-Yunis, “Brooklyn Paper Radio” hosted by editor Zach Gewelb, and “El Correo Radio” hosted by editor Karmina Fonseca.
