Humor: Karen Ripley and Ellen DeGeneres

This week, we're sharing one of our favorite episodes from the first season of the Queer Power Hour.

We hear from a couple of funny ladies about the funny and not-so-funny realities of being lesbian comedians:

  • Out in the Bay sat down in 2015 with Karen Ripley , who came out as a queer comic in the 1970s.
  • Making Gay History shares an interview from 2001 with Ellen DeGeneres, whose coming our in 1997 shaped queer history.
