Ken Schneck, PhD, is an Associate Professor and Director of the Leadership in Higher Education Program at Baldwin Wallace University where he teaches courses on race in society, ethical leadership, student development theory, and a slew of courses on how individuals can work with communities to create a more just world. He tours the country speaking on the topic of LGBTQ identity, community change, racial justice and how you can use your voice to create actual change (instead of creating more meetings about actual change).
Ken is the producer and host of This Show is So Gay, the award-winning, long-running, nationally syndicated radio show/podcast focused on people using their voices in a unique way to create dialogue around LGBTQ topics. He has interviewed over 500 of the most notable names in LGBTQ culture from civil rights champions to champions of drag, presidential candidates to singer/songwriters, prolific authors to one former member of Menudo (not as famous as Ricky Martin but just as gay). This Show is So Gay received the 2016 Excellence Award in Podcasting from the National Lesbian and Journalist’s Association and was nominated for the Best GLBT Podcast in the People’s Choice Podcast awards in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
