Gloria Bigelow

Gloria Bigelow brings the laughs on LOGO as part of Afterellen.com’s One Night Stand-Up comedy special, on SheWired.com’s Cherrybomb and on her Tuesday Blog Talk Radio show Late Nite Snacks. A versatile comedian with a background in acting, Bigelow has also appeared at the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, Aqua Girl, colleges and comedy clubs. Bigelow says, “When I hang out with black folk I sometimes get questions like, ‘Why do gay people think that gay rights and civil rights have anything to do with each other?’ and sometimes when I’m with gay folks, who aren’t black, I hear things like, ‘Well, you would think that black people would understand!’ It would be nice to be able to open up and peel back some of the conversations in both communities so that maybe we can get to a better place of understanding, and, uh… make people laugh… cause that’s important, too!” -CB
