Lesbian comedian Julie Goldman of The Big Gay Sketch Show, which airs on Logo, MTVs gay channel, made some interesting comments regarding her thoughts on Charles Knipp and Shirley Q. Liquor last year after activists were able to get a few of Knipp's shows canceled.
The comments were made during the May 17, 2007 episode of She Said What? a weekly online lesbian entertainment talk show featuring lesbian and bisexual women discussing the latest pop culture and entertainment news.
Goldman thought that Shirley Q. Liquor was funny, but not racist because her intent is good.
Julie Goldman has been officially added as one of Charles Knipp's supporters. Her comments as you can see in the video were made in the presence of another Black, poet and activist Staceyann Chin who clearly disagreed with her assessment.
Goldman, a white lesbian, clearly illustrates the racial divide in the gay community when it comes to issues of race and class.
