Micah Brown is a transsexual butch queen from New York City. They are a Sociologist, multi-media artist, and tragically self-aware. They tell stories loosely, and would like to remind you to take everything with several grains of salt, and also completely seriously.


Fred Brown, Jr. is a New York Emmy-nominated tv producer and Culture journalist. In his current role at BRIC TV Brooklyn, Fred has produced over 20 documentary packages with social justice and human interest themes. Fred helped develop and supervise the packaging of over 90 minutes of original documentary content, reflecting the diverse stories and experiences of New York’s vibrant and resiliant LGBTQ+ community. In 2019, Fred’s short doc titled “WERK!: Behind The Ball”, premiered at Times Square AMC Theater during the UrbanWorld Film Festival.

In a career now spanning 30 years, Fred has held professional stints at CNN, C-Span, The Washington Post, The Smithsonian Institute, The National Association of Black-Owned Broadcasters, PBS and The New York Times Advertising Group.


Glace Chase most recently starred in 3 return seasons of Nora Burn’s play The Village at Dixon Place and is a fixture of NYC & Australia’s queer comedy scene & multi-hyphenate & award-winning  “trans-queen” / comedienne / performer / screenwriter / playwright / ho. Glace wrote & starred in Sydney Theatre Company/Queensland Theatre’s hit play Triple X, earning rave reviews & nightly standing Os. Triple X was shortlisted for both the Susan Smith Blackburn Award and Nick Enright Prize. While in Oz, Glace also starred in All My Friends Are Racist and ArtWorks on ABC. She’s attached to numerous tv projects that will probably go nowhere. She’s currently developing her new one-woman Outback Adventure Glace’s Big Things. It opens with group sex & closes riding a wombat, so it’s the #1 must-see of the Off-Off-Off Broadway Slutty Trans Storytelling Comedy genre and is coming to a Living Room near you. Outcalls only. #youtoo
