It is 2018, I still have a bed, and I had a damn great time talking to all of you about how we are going to tackle this new year from every angle like the Amazons we are. *muscle flex*
Jen! Richards! Is! The! Best!! We talked about everything from HerStory to Keanu Reeves to being trans and home for the holidays to witchcraft and related book recommendations, and it *all* ruled.
Riese got in bed with me to help compile as many gift ideas & party thoughts as humanly possible, and everyone is welcome in advance. PS: My mother-in-law bought me these socks.
Last week we got in bed together and talked about how life changes all the time forever, and how we are expected to actually just *handle* that?!
Steph Beatriz got in bed with me last week… and I was super cool about it. Do you REALLY need to ask any further questions before you dive immediately into this episode?!
We got in bed and talked about break ups! How to heal your heart, how to trust again, & how to get your shit back from your ex! Also, Jenny invented a new sport called “Flumeball.” ENJOY.
We talked about all-thing-Coming-Out last week to celebrate National Coming Out Day! I gave lots of advice, had a wrestling match with my tripod, and went on a full-blown rant in discussing a mom who didn’t want her kid to come out because of how that might reflect on her parenting skills. A GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL.
We got in bed and we BROUGHT OUR BOOKS! Just kidding (although I did bring one), but we *did* talk about graduate programs, GSAs, queer theory, Catholic universities, and all things school. Woot woot!
Tegan Quin got in bed with me last week and we talked about cats, activism, La Croix, coming out, racquetball, and sooooo much more. My cat Sam even licked her arm at one point. It was great.
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 we talked about all-things-PRIDE, including what to do if you run into an ex, wearing flags as capes, DIY Prides, and hyyyyydraaating youuuuurselllllffffff. I also shouted about wanting to cosplay Wonder Woman.
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.
Gaby Dunn got in bed with me last week! She helped me give advice, told me all about her new book, and shared the story of the first girl she made out with in high school WHICH GOT ME FEELING A LOT OF THINGS. Also featuring Jenny Owen Youngs as bed-gargoyle.
