  • Brandon Strawn @ Steppenwolf!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to celebrate PRIDE at Steppenwolf as part of their LookOut Series -- a performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Brandon Strawn to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Brandon here and get your tickets!

    Brandon Strawn describes himself as an educator, a musician, and a delight.  As we are about to hear in his story, he has lived and worked in the Chicago region for 10 years, leaving a trail of math, music, and mirth behind him.  He lives in Edgewater with his boyfriend, two best friend roommates, a cat he tolerates, and two guinea pigs who tolerate him. 

    What's the queerest thing you've ever done?
    Either Ethel-Merman-esque belting along to Barbra Streisand's Broadway album or regular sodomy with my male boyfriend.

    Who is your favorite Queer icon?
    Definitely Alan Turing on my mathematical side and Stephen Sondheim on my musical side.
