Ken Schneck, PhD, is an Associate Professor and Director of the Leadership in Higher Education Program at Baldwin Wallace University. He is also the producer and host of This Show is So Gay, a nationally syndicated radio show/podcast focused on people using their voices in a unique way to create dialogue around LGBTQ topics.
The idea for the show came to Ken on July 4th, 2008, as he sat on a curb on Main Street in Brattleboro, Vt., to watch the Independence Day Parade (six firetrucks and a drag queen…seriously). A small group was handing out fliers about the local radio station and Ken thought, “Hey, there should be a gay show.” And “This Show is So Gay” was born.
Ken, who is also a contributor to the Huffington Post, received his doctorate as a gay Jew from a Jesuit college in NYC writing a dissertation entitled (no joke!) “That’s so gay: Deconstructing the word ‘gay’ in the daily parlance of high school students.”
