Becker’s trajectory over the last decade or so is anything but conventional, but one that somehow still ties together all of the various threads into a life moving forward by its own rules. Projects that start as a creative brainstorming burst develop out into a culminative body of work that illustrates the workings of a DIY artist at the peak of progress. This shit is mad fun, too
Comedian turned producer turned activist Kristen Becker has been described as a “comedic tour de force” and is likely the funniest dyke you’ve never heard of. Born in Buffalo, NY and raised in Louisiana, her show dishes up a bawdy sense of reality...served with a slice of southern charm.
In 2006 she was a founding member of Dykes of Hazard comedy, bringing lesbian comedy into deep south dive bars. As baby dyke Becker matured and the national climate changed, her efforts switched to a more unifying message. In 2015, she launched the Loosen the Bible Belt tour with Pastor Jay Bakker ( son of queer icon Tammy Faye Bakker) a comedy/variety tour intended to bridge the the gap between the religious and queer communities existing south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Yes. She is a non religious dyke comic that tours with the Pastor son of Tammy Faye Bakker. How do you NOT know her?
Oh wait, there’s more.
In 2016, Becker launched Summer of Sass (summerofsass.com) a summer work program that relocates 18-20 yr old LGBTQ humans from oppressive areas to work and live in Provincetown for the summer.
This year Becker is teaming up with Curve magazine to launch LEZBIANATI , a podcast/video home on the internet for badass, benevolent women.
