    OPINION: GOAL Is the Wrong Choice for Grand Marshals of Pride
    The selection of a police group to lead this year's parade is tone-deaf. Here's a not-so-fun fact: Every year, Philly Pride does something that sours me on our city's LGBTQ community. Whether it's the lack of creativity in venue selection, the disproportionate number of cisgender gay white men dominating the event, or the lack of a queer-cultural embrace that intersects the community, Pride often fails to represent everyone.

Please Welcome PHIT’s New Sketch House Teams

When PHIT announced that submissions were open for new sketch house teams, we received close to 70 packets from many strong writers throughout the city. After a long and difficult process with an abundance of talent to choose from, Directors Brian Rumble and Jon Plester have assembled two teams that will be making big waves at PHIT. The former is the theater’s first new live sketch house team since Goat Rodeo’s creation in 2013, and the latter is PHIT’s first ever digital sketch team, dedicated to creating and releasing online content.
