On November 3rd, 2011, I appeared on Feast of Fun, a Chicago-based LGBTQ comedy podcast. On show #1474 – Glitterbomb at the Disco, I spoke with Fausto Ferños and Marc Felion about my predictions for 2011.
One of our most highly anticipated shows of the year is our trends and predictions show we tape with Marsian De Lellis, an LA based puppet artist who has been described as “a crazy hall of mirrors on which society can see itself.”
Today we’re taking a look at some of the predictions, trends and buzzwords that might have come true in 2011. How about Glitterbombs? Our Glitter Day celebration was awesome, but we had no idea that activists from all over the world would take on covering people they disliked with tons of glitter.
Listen as we chat with Marsian about some of the things that did or did make it in 2011- Pajamapocalypse, Armageddon of Apocalypses, Trans-Modernism, mirco-fruits, temporary face-lifts, ironic junk food, and CashCats.biz.
Plus, Marsian tells us what it was like for him going on the Oprah show as a teenager.
- Sex advice columnist Dan Savage gets glitterbombed by a trans rights activist. Why do so many trans folks have a bone to pick with the It Gets Better Guy?
- Lady Gaga starts a her own charity – the Born This Way Foundation.
- Conservative Christians fight to keep forced sterilization a requirement for trans folks in Sweden.
- Pro-gay-rights psychologist Lisa Diamond fights to keep her study on the fluid sexuality of women from being used by conservatives to keep same-sex couples from getting married.
The Feast of Fun podcast (formerly titled Feast of Fools) is a Chicago-based talk show hosted by Fausto Fernós and Marc Felion that showcases celebrity guests, artists, musicians, actors, and members of the LGBT community and those who support them. A typical program will include one or more of a number of features, including roundtable discussions, unusual news and social trends, LGBT issues, comedy, music, food and cocktail recipes, or interviews. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Fausto Fernós created the Feast of Fools in 1998 as wacky artists variety show in Chicago, Illinois. Feast of Fun grew out of an audio blog to promote the live show
