We got in bed! You asked me questions! I answered them! Sam was there! IT WAS GREAT!
I got married to Jenny Owen Youngs four years ago, nearly to the day, so that I could demand that she get in our marital bed to livestream for you about all that we learned about weddings (and ourselves) in the process. We talked attire, budgets, pushy parents, feminism (of course), and oh-so-much-more.
Cameron Esposito got in bed with me and did my hair, SO THERE. We talked about religion, dog teeth, comedy, coming out, and her new podcast, Queery!
This week I got in bed with my kitten, Sam, proving to everyone that I can, in fact, get even more gay (how?!). We talk allergies and food and depression and losing a pet and we also watch Sam play and eat her treats. It is peak internet.
Queen of Bisexuality Kate Leth joined me in bed this week and talked about coming out as bisexual at age 11 via Sailor Moon (!!), feeling like you “aren’t gay enough,” bringing straight, cis partners to pride celebrations, and soooo much more. Plus, kittens.
This week we all looked each other in the eyes and screamed, HOW DO WE EVEN DO THIS AND WHO ARE WE, EVEN? We talked about life-goals and the patriarchy, and then a baby kitten named Sam helped us all take a deep breath.
I went all the way to New York to get in bed with Gabby Rivera last week, and we talked all about body image, summertime feelings, and America Chavez. It RULED.

This week on an AMA-version of #GIBWK, I gave advice about heartbreak, feeling good about sex, how to date, and oh-so-much-more, plus Jenny and I lost our entire minds during a discussion of Wonder Woman. FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK.
Jasika Nicole got in bed with me last week and helped me give advice on longterm relationships! We talked communication, couples therapy, and that way that your gf sighs and says it doesn’t mean anything but YOU KNOW IT MEANS SOMETHING, UGH.

This week we talked all about making friends, losing friends, coming out to friends, and even the television show F•R•I•E•N•D•S! Jenny joins to sing the theme song and inadvertently suffers the shame of realizing that she might have something in common with Ross…
Mara Wilson got in bed with me, and we talked metal health, the emotional memory of elephants, sandwiches, bisexuality, and Trunchbull’s stance on the LGBTQ community. Yup.

Last week on #GIBWK we talked about coming out to other people and tackled specifics like coming out via letter vs in person, coming out for a second time, coming out to religious family, and of course the hard-hitting issue of when I knew that my wife was gay…
Last week I talked alllll about the joyous, never-stressful process of coming out to yourself. Also, Jenny joined me for a bit and shared her 1st grade daydreams of saving girls on horseback…
I got into bed with musician Allison Weiss last week to give advice on all-things-heartbreak (trusting again, healing, and putting your phone down when alllll you want to do is send that text…). Take THAT, Valentine’s Day.
