This Pride month, Jack Daniel’s has partnered with four celebrity drag queens and allies for a virtual series, Jack Fire Pride which blends two food trends: the drag brunch and the mukbang, an online video in which the host eats food while interacting with an audience.
On June 27th, Gia Gunn’s episode will premiere featuring her special brunch/mukbang video. During her episode, Gunn will enjoy an wonderful sushi spread and share a non-alcholic cocktail recipe that’s good for all ages.
However, this event isn’t just about food and games. This virtual, remote dining experience will feature hard-hitting discussions on the drag community and COVID-19, that’s a must-see experience for all people.
For Gia, “The drag community consists of many artists and performers who depend on nightlife spaces to earn a living. Many people in our community are struggling right now as a result of the shutdown. I am super thankful to Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire for calling attention to this part of the industry that is often overlooked.”
Filmed at home during May’s shelter-in-place orders, each episode, posted every Saturday at 10AM ET/7AM PT on the Jack Fire Pride website, showcasing a different performer.
The Koalition spoke to Gia about this incredible experience as she sheds light about trans rights and what this year’s pride month means to her. It is both educational and inspirational.
