Gays of Sunshine Comedy Hour

Kia McCall-Barnes, also known as Kia Comedy, is an Atlanta based LGBTQ comedian who is currently touring with her signature “Queer Comedy” shows. She has performed with many prominent comedians, including Luenell, Comedian Shang, and TK Kirkland, and she is also the host of SVTV Network’s “Queer Comedy Jam,” which features some of the country’s best LGBTQ comedians.

Kia uses her entertainment platform to encourage acceptance, diversity, and unity in all communities. She does so by sharing her experiences growing up in church, as an educator, as number 11 of 12 siblings, and as a married lesbian in an interracial relationship in the South. Kia recently completed a Fulbright Research Fellowship to study abroad in Belize, and her research is published and implemented in American curricula and potentially in classrooms throughout the country.

Kia has also had several articles published, including many in “Curve” Magazine, the most heavily circulated lesbian periodical. Kia is a speaker for Georgia Equality and an advocate and activist in the LGBTQ community. Simply put, Kia Comedy is not just jokes. Keep up to catch Kia coming to a stage near you.
