Community w/ Kristen Kaza – Ep. 159

We all want it, we all need it, but sometimes, we’re not quite sure how to find it. That’s why people like Kristen Kaza dedicate their lives to building community through events and creating “brave spaces” for LGBTQIA folks. Kristen is the party guru, event planner, and activist behind Reunion Chicago, Slo ‘Mo and more. She has worked on holding space and building events and gatherings where the LGBTQIA community can connect with, enjoy, and sometimes, challenge each other. We talk about how our communities are changing, and how COVID has shifted the way we connect. Plus, Melody implores our listeners to shed light on the Beaver festival, while Carolyn attempts to save her queer cred by binging gay movies. Finally, we answer a question from a baby gay with an adorable crush.

Intersex w/ Maria Tridas – Ep. 158

We’re shining a much needed spotlight on the “I” in LGBTQIA with video producer/host and intersex activist Maria Tridas! Being intersex is about as common as being a natural redhead, so why is being intersex treated as a rare anomaly instead of a naturally occurring biological variation? How has our understanding of being intersex changed over the years, and how can we be better allies? What do many intersex people not even know that they’re intersex? We cover these questions and much more. Please note: Although Maria is very comfortable discussing details about their body, not all intersex individuals feel the same. This is a very personal and individual topic. Please do not assume that intersex, NB, trans folks want to or should discuss details of their bodies.

We also talk about Melody’s trip down South to see her family, make a case for gay athletes to hook up with each other, and talk up the amazing lineup for our fundraiser to save the lesbian bars! Finally, we answer a question from a listener who is considering one night stands now that her relationship has “restructured.”

Rec Leagues w/ Lindsay Boling – Ep. 157

It’s not about whether you win or lose, it’s about finding a girlfriend while you’re playing the game! At least that’s the dream on this episode about Rec Leagues with comedian and former Division I soccer player Lindsay Boling (NY Comedy Festival). Not a rec league person? Well you’re in luck, because we recorded this episode during election week. No, that doesn’t mean we talked about politics instead of our topic. It means we were drinking, so it only took so long before the conversation about team sports turned into reminiscing about MySpace and emo bands. Also, for a week filled with doom scrolling/refreshing, it managed to be VERY gay. Finally, we end with a listener question about journaling which made Melody’s day!

Halloween w/ A Ghost – Ep. 156

It might sound like it’s just Carolyn and Melody on this haunting episode, but there’s totally a ghost there. You have to have “a gift” to hear it. Don’t believe us? Then how else would you explain the unfortunate series of events that led to us having to can an awesome interview with one of our favorite comedians? Bad audio? Not on our watch 2020! (Okay…maybe on our watch…). We’re dyking out about our favorite holiday, what makes it queer, and how we like to celebrate it. Plus, you’ll get the play-by-play of the Zoom Halloween party that Melody and Ali threw. And if that’s not enough, we spill all the stinkin’ details of our first official podcast co-host reunion since March. But don’t worry, we don’t ghost our listener question from someone who is pining over their pandemic crush.
