I'm Sally and I host Oh Hey, Gays. What's it about? Me and a bunch of pals discussing mostly queer culture. There's also some history and some current affairs. There's some talk about porn and sexual health and lgbtiq style. Also a lot of talk about the film 'Carol' and also a lot of people trying to stop me talking about the film 'Carol'. Most of all just a lot of talk about what it's like to be queer in 2018.

Happy Mardi Gras, everybody!!!!
If you didn't know, we celebrated Mardi Gras this weekend in Sydney. It's the annual LGBTQ+ event that runs for weeks and finishes with a parade down Oxford Street.
There's so much history involved in the event and this week Sarah and I unpack all of that and more!
Trans people in sport
So this week Sarah and I take a look at Martina Navratilova's recent comments about trans people in sport. She says that “Letting men compete as women simply if they change their name and take hormones is unfair — no matter how those athletes may throw their weight around,” Navratilova wrote.
So Sarah and I take a look at that. Is she out of her mind? Is she telling the truth? Can men pretend to be trans in order to win sporting scholarships? We examine the evidence.
Hey so this episode my friend Brooke and I went to talk to the incredibly talented, Handsome. We are both huge fans of her music and it was a match made in heaven when she agreed to come on the podcast.
We spoke to her for over an hour about everything you can think of. She gave her time and her thoughts on life to us so freely that when we left we did cartwheels in the hotel hallway we were so excited.
This week Sarah and I talk about gay slang. Well, derogatory words I guess. Is it appropriate for LGBTQI people to use derogatory terms with each other? Or should we not use them at all? And how do you feel when straight people use them?
I think we can and should use them, but maybe you don't? Ya'll know Sarah probably doesn't think we should.
It's an interesting topic. I also discuss my week of drag race. #TeamManila
With the recent news about the attack on Jussie Smollett, Sarah and I talk homophobia. Why in 2019 are we still unable to walk down a street without the far of being beaten up or have something yelled at us? It drives me crazy, as you'll see in this ep.

This is a terrific podcast - I wish something like this had been around when I was coming out. Each episode discusses a topic with sensitivity and humour. Sally and Sarah are great foils and their laughter is infectious.
My new favourite podcast!
This is my new favourite podcast. Hilarious and insightful. Good chemistry from the hosts and a great balance of topics and interviews. Monique Brumby AND Jill Sobule OMG! Very interesting topics. I can't wait to see what they will come up with next.
Oh Em Gee. Rainbow heart explosion
I love the stories from our Australian LGBT community. I love teenage stories of coming out. I love all of it. Sally Tysoe is the hostess with the mostess and her guests are a fun array or friends, neighbours and proud queer community identities. Definitely listen to the Monique Brumby episode - it will have you guffawing in the street.
