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 welcomes Taylor Ortega (she/ her/ hers) and Jay Malsky (they/ them/ theirs).
Taylor is a comedian, actor, and writer based in New York who most recently was a New Face at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival. You can see her on screen in the upcoming A24 films “False Positive” and “After Yang” or as Shego in the Disney Channel original movie “Kim Possible.” And catch Taylor regularly in digital projects for MTV, Comedy Central, and Billboard.
Jay is a New York-based comedian, musician, and drag performer who was recently featured in the NBC Diversity Showcase.
Both Taylor and Jay can be seen performing live comedy around New York and Los Angeles.
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 21st incredible journey into the LGBTQ communities’ vulnerable and often hilarious stories of coming out.
