PrideKC Celebrates Pride Month with KC Film
Go behind the scenes with the local production crew that brought Queer Eye to Kansas City
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work with the Queer Eye cast and team? Do you want to learn more about the film industry in Kansas City? And why was RideKC chosen as a filming location for Queer Eye seasons 3 and 4? All of these questions and more were answered at this very special behind the scenes event featuring KC Film and the local film crew responsible for the production of Queer Eye in Kansas City.
The Kansas City community joined us on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Event Space at Nara Restaurant at 1617 Main Street, right on the KC Streetcar line.
Special guests included members from the local KC Film industry that worked on Season’s Three and Four of Queer Eye: Danny Bowerbox, DeVonte Brown, Vic Dominguez, Kristin Kent, Alexandra Rhoades and Christopher Smith. Additionally, special guests included KC Film, the Mid-America LGBT Chamber of Commerce, the Arts Asylum, KC Regional Transit Alliance, PrideKC sponsors, RideKC team members and many more.
“We are proud that two-thirds of the crew for Queer Eye were locally hired. The Kansas City crew enabled the producers and cast to make an amazing Season 3 and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in Season 4,” said Steph Scupham, KC Film Office Director.
The month of June is celebrated nationally as Pride Month for the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as Safety Month through the National Safety Council. We want to share the message that RideKC welcomes everyone and strives to provide a safe and inclusive place for our employees, customers and region. We stand together against violence and discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, race or religion, and work together to make all modes of transportation a safe and enjoyable experience.
PrideKC is made possible by the generous support of our local sponsors and community partners: The Mid-America LGBT Chamber of Commerce; KC Regional Transit Alliance; Burns & McDonnell; PortKC; HNTB; Quintessential Events; River City Rebar; WeWork; WSP; TranSystems; and TREKK Design Group.
