Local Ladies Who Make Us Laugh in 2016

Local Ladies Who Make Us Laugh in 2016 | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it
Our sixth-annual profile of talented female performers and writers in Toronto who don't always get the attention they deserve.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Smith isn’t the first queer comic profiled as a LLWMUL (2015’s Aisha Alfa, for instance, who now splits her time between Toronto and LA has become a featured vlogger for Queer Comics), but she’s certainly the most loud and proud lesbian to date. Her act, which crackles with impish energy, frequently involves her teasing the straight men in the audience over how much more “mad puss” she “crushes” then they do.

Straight Outta Oz by Todrick Hall

This past year has been very rough for me. I left my manager, lost my Mtv show, struggled with the relationship with my mother, dealing with racism and homophobia in the industry and self image was such a struggle. I put my all into auditioning for NBC's "The Wiz" and got so close to landing the role of the Scarecrow, but didn't get it. I want to thank my family, friends and fans for helping me out of this dark place and encouraging me to turn my struggle into art. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has always held a special place in my heart, and I have never been more proud of anything I've created. Thank you all for standing by me on this crazy yellow brick road we call life. Enjoy "Straight Outta Oz" and I hope to see you all this summer when we perform it live. Tickets are on sale now at todrickhall.com and I CANNOT wait to share the story of my life and Oz with you every night.

The rise of influencers versus celebrity endorsements points to something that most of us in the marketing & advertising world have known was coming for a long time... the true convergence of content marketing (videos, photos and written content, such as a blog) with the power of micro-targeting via social media, creating a new force in the online media world, the Influencer, aka the Media Entity of One (and sometimes Two!)

Q Scores Stats Reveal Who’s More Popular: Digital Stars vs. Mainstream Celebs | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it
Internet influencers are not as well-known as traditional stars, but their fans are more devoted.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

In its first publicly disclosed measurement of influencers, Q Scores discovered in the first quarter of this year that compared with, say, TV stars, awareness of the digital talent pool is still quite low, even among U.S. teenagers. But it found that the level of fan engagement around influencers is stronger than that in most sectors of the celebrity universe.

Join Two Bad Tourists at Pride Con in California this July

Join Two Bad Tourists at Pride Con in California this July | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it
We often talk about the LGBT+ community and are passionate advocates for gay events, yet gay prides, ski weeks and cruises aren’t the only ways to get involved. Yes we do love a good party, rainbow parades and don’t complain being surrounded by half naked people celebrating. However, this July we’re changing things up a bit and will be attending an inaugural LGBT+ event focused on inspiring dialogue, connecting fans and influencers and exhibiting the diverse talent within our colorful community.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be attending Pride Con 2016 and we want you to join us! Although it’s the very first year, we’re unofficially thinking of it as Comic Con meets Vid Con meets gay pride. Without a precedent, expectations are still to be set, but we have no doubt that we will be raving about it for weeks to come. Founded in 2015 by Long and Thai Vo, Pride Con came to fruition after successfully raising $15,000 via Kickstarter to host an all-inclusive LGBT+ focused event.
