After an extraordinary evening in May with the one and only Kate Clinton, she returns to Women On The Net this month, and this time with a twist!
Kate Clinton will be interviewing Andrea Meyerson, founder and president of Women On A Roll, Women On The Net, and StandOut Productions.
Andrea Meyerson has created a career out of her passion: giving a voice to LGBTQ people. A prolific producer of film, TV and live productions, she has made it her life’s work to share and preserve the rich culture and history of the LGBTQ community.
As founder and president of StandOut Productions, Andrea has produced and directed more than 30 films and TV specials, which have aired on Showtime, Logo, Netflix and at film festivals worldwide. She has completed 12 feature documentaries, including Letter to Anita, an award-winning film about anti-gay crusader Anita Bryant; Clambake, a history of Women’s Week in Provincetown; and I Stand Corrected, about the world-famous jazz bassist Jennifer Leithem which won 14 awards worldwide. Her newest documentary, This is Jessica, is slated to hit the film festival circuit this year.
Andrea’s entrepreneurial path to producing LGBTQ content began in 1995, when she founded Women On A Roll (WOAR), a grassroots bicycle club. As word spread and membership soared, Andrea began planning events and excursions, and the club soon evolved into one of the country’s largest social organizations for lesbians. Today, WOAR focuses on boutique worldwide travel, providing unique social and cultural opportunities to women.
In 1997, Andrea broadened her reach by founding StandOut Productions, with the goal of amplifying LGBTQ voices. She staged live events featuring some of the country’s best-known entertainers, including Wanda Sykes, Indigo Girls, k.d. lang, Joan Armatrading, and Brandi Carlile. She has also produced numerous TV comedy specials featuring LGBTQ stars such as Kate Clinton, Niecy Nash, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Karen Williams, and Alec Mapa.
She is the recipient of 20+ awards for her work, including becoming the first openly gay recipient of YWCA’s Women of Achievement Award and being named a Pride Honoree for the 2020 California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus. In 2019, the Hollywood Women’s Film Institute presented her with the Dorothy Arzner Director’s Award for LGBTQ Impact in Film. Other notable awards include HRC’s Local Hero Award, The L-Fund Visionary of the Year Award, and earlier this month she received a Proclamation from the City of West Hollywood.
In March 2020, Andrea launched Women On The Net, an online entertainment and social platform intially created to serve the lesbian community during the pandemic. She has hosted numerous iconic guests such as Lily Tomlin, Meredith Baxter, Paula Poundstone, and Kate Clinton, to name a few.
Andrea could not be more honored to be interviewed by one of her idols, Kate Clinton!
