Persianality w/ Desiree Akhavan – Ep. 133

We’re not Dyking Out with any ol’ bisexual this week. We’ve got THE Bisexual, Desiree Akhavan! After hyping her work for years (Appropriate Behavior, The Miseducation of Cameron Post), we finally sit down and talk about her life as a Persian, queer filmmaker quarantined in Brooklyn. While Carolyn finds Desiree’s work super relatable, Melody finds her whole life to be super relatable, perhaps TOO relatable. They talk about their experiences coming out while Persian and how they relate to their culture. We also talk about The Bisexual (stream it on Hulu) and the challenges queer shows and films face in attracting mainstream audiences. Before we get into all things Persianality, Melody and Carolyn introduce a new weekly segment and talk about cake. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who hasn’t had sex with her partner in over a year.

She-Ra w/ Noelle Stevenson – Ep. 132

Whether or not you’ve seen Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, you’ll want to hear from the person who made one of the queerest shows on TV. The extraordinarily talented Noelle Stevenson joins us to dyke out about creating and wrapping up a show that’s full of heart, magic, and SO MUCH GAY. Noelle reimagined the 1980s cartoon to reflect a more inclusive world, and this final season is the best and queerest yet. We talked about her conservative upbringing and coming to terms with her sexuality, as well as how those experiences influence her work. Plus, Melody and Carolyn dish on their quarantine habits and the lesbians they’re watching on Instagram. Finally, we end with a listener question from a 19-year-old about lesbian bed death.

Lesbian Memes w/ Hotmessbian – Ep. 131

Can I has Lezbian memes? We’re dyking out with queen of the queer memes, Cheyenne aka Hotmessbian! What is it about a picture with some relatable words that brings us together? Who even thinks up these things? We talk about Cheyenne’s journey from casual meme consumer to having a following of over 100k meme-lovers. Plus, we talk (maybe too much) about Netflix’s A Secret Love and the fate of a well-known celesbian couple. And per usual, we end with a question from a young Susan frustrated with the selection on dating apps.

Hobbies w/ Shantira Jackson – Ep. 130

They’re a great way to make friends, meet future girlfriends, and lately, help pass the time. Comedian and writer Shantira Jackson (Saved By The Bell, Busy Tonight) joins us to Dyke Out about hobbies! How have your hobbies changed from when you were a kid? Are some inherently more queer than others? Would you ever take up a hobby just to impress someone? Yeah, acoustic guitar dabblers, we’re talking about you. We also chat about the shows we’ve been streaming, from pleasant British realty shows, to Reese Witherspoon playing the shit out of white women, to well-endowed men with dragon tattoos. Finally, we wrap it up with a question from a listener who can’t find love on her Mediterranean island.
