Becker on the Bayou - Forum for Equality and PACE Benefit Fri, May 30, 8 pm, Ernest's Orleans Restaurant

Comedian Kristen Becker is comin’ home. After spending nearly 10 years in her beloved Buffalo, NY, Becker is coming back to Louisiana, the setting of her formative years. With this move she plans to energize and mobilize the equality movement in Louisiana, and soon, the Southwest. Her fervent love of the state and its people has led her back to fight for passage of the Louisiana
Non-Discrimination Act. To spread the word and raise funds for Forum for Equality Louisiana and P.A.C.E. (People Acting for Change and Equality), Becker will be performing at Ernest Orleans Restaurant, May 30 2014, 8pm as part of her 4-city comedy tour, visiting all corners of the Pelican State in spring 2014.

Becker’s wide-ranging comedy is rowdy, political, personal, intelligent, and unrelentingly honest. A comedian who happens to also be an out lesbian,  Becker consistently wins the hearts of all audiences, straight and gay alike, with her unapologetic humor. Her childhood, divided between the Rust Belt and the Deep South, (Shreveport actually) and has left her uniquely able to connect with all manner of people. Her ability to win the affection of such a wide range of audiences is due to her understated southern charm juxtaposed against a raucous and powerful persona.

Kristen Becker is going to use her love of comedy to fight for the right of all people to love. Join her in solidarity and laughter!
