The Take On, hosted by Amir Yassai, has come at the perfect time in 2020! The Take On is Pride. It’s Queerness. It’s Black Lives Matter. The Take On wants to break down barriers and have conversations about racism, sexism, homophobia, body shaming, and transphobia in Hollywood and Broadway. Within these deep conversations, we are not afraid to be vulnerable and as a stand up comedian, Amir brings humor into each conversation with his incredible guests! We are creating space for the queers, the misfits, and those who feel like they don’t have a place to call home. You have found home! This Queer safe space is yours! As we navigate the peaks and valleys of life together, The Take On wants to inspire YOU to step into who you are meant to be, embrace the best parts of ourselves, and shed the parts that may no longer serve us. Welcome to The Take On with Amir Yassai!
