In Takeover of the Empire State Building, Brenda and Glennda visit the top of the Empire State Building as it is lit up in lavender for Gay Pride. They interview both tourists visiting the building, and activists who have come to see the lights. Ultimately, they question whether this gesture is adequate, or if there is still a way to go until equality is achieved.

An episode of The Brenda and Glennda Show, hosted by Brenda Sexual and Glennda Orgasm. Featuring Rupert Goldsworthy, David Hickey, Jon Nalley, Stevin Smurf, Willie Tee, Miss Understood, Micahel Wakefield, Scott Walk, and Jeff Wolfson.
