Lea DeLaria is well known from her stand out performance as Big Boo in the hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. The first out gay comic on television in America, she has starred in two Broadway musicals, been featured in many major as well as independent films. She is an author, records jazz for a major label and portrayed Madam Delphina for over a decade on One Life to Live. Outspoken and controversial, DeLaria has been officially censured by congress and was once picketed by Christian Conservatives and Radical Feminists at the same event at the same time. DeLaria will teach audiences how to create change in a conservative society while trudging upstream in a muddy bogged down river of political correctness.
Opening Act Kim Archer

If you enjoy a variety of good music led by an unforgettable voice and delivered with impressive skill, Kim Archer is an artist you must see and hear! Known for her raw, powerhouse performances and personable interaction with her audiences, Kim Archer has attracted a large and loyal following of fans both in the Pacific Northwest and across the country. For over a decade this lifelong musician has entertained standing-room-only crowds with her vocally-driven, soulful rock and honest songwriting. Whether she’s playing a premier venue with her award-winning band, or an intimate club for a solo show, Archer never disappoints. With guitar in hand she commands the stage playing her own original songs, or conjuring up a whole new vibe on vintage hits so that they sound fresh and wonderfully different.
“At the turn of this century, it all becomes about inclusivity. We’re no longer Gays and Lesbians, we’re Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Questioning, Allies—by the time you’re done saying it, the parade’s over! That’s why you’re gonna here me use the word queer . . . To me, [queer] encompasses all those letters that you guys are saying all the time.”
