KIA FEA­TURED IN­TER­VIEW COM­EDY CUTS LOOSE

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

By SHAN­NON HAMES

Fash­ion, com­edy and equal­ity. These are on the gay agenda of Atlanta les­bian Kia McCall Barnes. This one­time teacher left the class­room when she was outed to her em­ployer by her in­sur­ance com­pany. She then made a ca­reer change and is now a suc­cess­ful come­di­enne with shows lined up this Fri­day and Satur­day night for Black Gay Pride week­end.

She spoke with the Ge­or­gia Voice about her in­ter­ra­cial mar­riage, her ac­tivism for the LGBT com­mu­nity and her stand up homo-hu­mor that makes peo­ple laugh, then leaves them to think.
