Celebrate Black Queer Voices: Feb 7 - Sampson McCormick

I love the fact that I am seeing more and more black comedians that are out and proud.  We're not at the point where I would call it commonplace just yet, but there are a notable few that are opening the doors for funny LGBTQ folks to enter the world of stand-up.  One of those people pushing down barriers and eliminating obstacles is Sampson McCormick.

Sampson's style of humor resonates with me because he is speaking my experience.  He is a black gay man that identifies as black first.  Until you've walked in these shoes you probably won't get it.  But Sampson is a voice of our community.  He is telling our truth.  And the shit is funny!  But it's also smart.  According to Sampson, "We live in a time when people are laughing at politicians and getting upset with comedians."  TRUTH!!!
