We often talk about the lack of authentic and funny queer stories, and TV writers like Brittani Nichols (Abbott Elementary, Black Lady Sketch Show) are doing the work to give our community the content we crave. Hear how Brittani went from TV nerd to pitching jokes in the writer’s room. What are some challenges that TV writers face when trying to tell our stories? What’s it like to work with other queer writers? How can we get to more authentic stories? How does Brittani balance her career with social justice work? Plus, Carolyn goes back and forth on her gayest thing, while Melody leans into her Connecticut origins. Finally, we end on a listener question-ish about the Lesbian Master Doc.
