Join Kelli and Anne for their 126th NEW episode!
They begin this episode by talking about the new SCOTUS ruling that says that LGBTQ workers cannot be fired or otherwise discriminated against simply for being LGBTQ. It’s a long time coming, and there is so much more work to do, but it’s a start and something positive to focus on in this very difficult time in our world. Next they talk about going to the Drive-In Movie and moving into Phase 2 in New York and New Jersey. Finally hear all about Anne’s new TikTok obsession. Follow her at @theannesteele
Their Special Guest today is Jacqui Squatriglia, choreographer and owner of Flaming Saddles, an amazing country and western gay bar that not only plays country music, but has super hot and talented dancers on the bar! She has locations in Hell’s Kitchen in NYC and West Hollywood in Los Angeles. Hear about how she grew up as a dancer, became a bartender at Coyote Ugly and choreographed all the bar top dances, what it felt like to have that turn into a major motion picture and reality show and expand to so many locations and then what inspired her to leave and create her own brand. Lastly hear how they are managing during this covid crisis and what comes next. Go to www.FlamingSaddles.com for more details.
As always, they end with a cocktail from Equality Vodka.This week, in honor of Jacqui, they are serving The Cowboy Cooler!
