Raised By Gay Moms w/ Lucas Connolly – ep. 45


Comedian Lucas Connolly (Seeso’s New York’s Funniest Comedians) has FOUR gay moms, so we overlooked his affiliation with the patriarchy to have him come on the show and dyke out about his upbringing. We knew Lucas had a lot of moms, but what we didn’t know is that one of them is a well-known LGBT activist and politician (research fail)! We had so many questions, like what’s it like growing up in a queer household in Laramie, Wyoming, how did this affect his dating life, and what does he do on mother’s day??? But before we dig into gay mom territory, Carolyn talks about seeing Janelle Monae live, and Sarah wants the New York Post to LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!! Plus, we take a question from a listener who wants to explore the world as a lesbian, but her boyfriend is not onboard.

Homoground w/ Lynn Casper – Ep. 44

Lynn Casper, curator of queer indie music and founder/producer of Homoground, joins us to dyke out about how her popular and longstanding internet-radio-show-turned-podcast came to be. What’s different about music made by queer musicians? How has music by queer musicians changed and evolved over the years? Who should you be adding to your Spotify playlist right now? We recorded this episode before Carolyn left for vacation, when there was a chance she was walking into a parent trap situation and New York was on a mission to turn us all into puddles of sweat. Plus, learn Sarah’s ramen hack and wax nostalgic with us about Nickelodeon in the 90s. One last note, the show Carolyn plugged on Friday, July 27 is CANCELLED. So don’t show up at Under St. Marks that night…or do if you like surprises!

ComicsPt2_PostFeature

And were back! Jet lag and time zones are the villains in this late-arriving second half of our Comics episode. Where did we leave off? Comic book writer Vita Ayala (DC comics, Black Mask Studios, Vault Comics, Valiant Comics) came by to talk about representation in comics and learned about their journey from young fan to writer. This episode, we continue the convo on cosplay, get Vita’s hot recs, crush hard on Neve Campbell, and answer a listener’s question. Best of all, we learn how the show Popular helped Vita realize how queer they were. Bam! Pow! Until next time… -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear!

Comics w/ Vita Ayala – Ep. 42, Part 1

ComicsPt1_PostFeature
Holy podcast batman! Comic book writer Vita Ayala joins us for our first two part episode where we dyke out about – you guessed it – comics! Vita has written for DC comics, Black Mask Studios, Vault Comics, and Valiant Comics, and you should check out their most recent series, The Wilds. We cover so much ground, but spend the first chunk of the podcast talking about Beyonce and whether or not she has a magic touch, the dyke march, trolls, and comebacks. But when we get down to business, we learn all about Vita’s journey from believing Wonder Woman is Puerto Rican (it does make a lot of sense!), to them one day writing for Wonder Woman!!! Follow your dreams people. We also talk about how and why comics are becoming increasingly queer and intersectional, including bisexual Buffy because Carolyn loves to change the topic to Buffy whenever possible. Tune in next week for the second part of the episode where we get Vita’s hot recs, search for subtext, and answer a listener’s question.
