Bea Arthur played Vera Charles to Angela Landsbury’s Mame. And to Lucy’s Mame. Never, to my knowledge, did she play Mame. But I enjoy you fellas!
I really enjoy this show. Mike and Kyle have created such a great venue to discuss topics that relate to the Queer community. Not only interesting and informative, these boys are also super entertaining! I highly recommend joining.
Like hanging out with good friends
It’s a pleasure to listen to friends Mike and Kyle discuss various topics from their different perspectives, addressing gay stereotypes and sharing personal stories. They also feature really engaging guests from time to time. My favorite thing, though is how supportive they are of one another, and their willingness to be vulnerable- real treasures in the world of male friendship. Oh, and did I mention they are hella funny?
