    Last year Alicia went viral on TikTok after posting funny videos with her wife, gaining 1.3 million followers.

But with her success comes the pressure of being a queer role model, and online abuse for her sexuality. Yungblud and Alicia discuss the positives and negatives of social media and how it impacts their mental health.

Definitely an interesting listen

While I disagree with most of not all the sentiment of most guests and attitudes reflected in this show, it’s good to listen to a wide range of opinions to help formulate your own
