Hosts Dave Holmes and Matt McConkey grill your favorite LGBTQ+ celebrities on what they’re loving, and who they’re loving. These queer-centric conversations spotlight our guests’ pop culture obsessions and personal experiences with dating, sex, and love.
The lovely and thoughtful Cheyenne Jackson joins Dave and Matt this week, a little bit late in the afternoon from the Warner Bros studios to talk about waking up early to see the sunset with his twins, recently deciding to focus on more joy in his work, and learning from the greats, such as Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, and Leslie Jordan. Cheyenne also discusses being an openly gay man cast as a romantic lead, finding a neighbor and mentor in Jerry Orbach, manifesting his dreams by just saying yes, coming out at 19 to his small town Christian family, learning how to be comfortable in his own body, and how he met his husband and deciding to start a family together.
The brilliant and insightful Harvey Guillen joins Homophilia this week to greet the new year with Dave and Matt! Harvey talks about his love of acting and performing, including his role on FX's What We Do In The Shadows, for which he actually auditioned on accident. They discuss the coded queerness of the characters on the show and the importance of their representation. Dave and Matt ask about Harvey's pathway to WWDITS, as well as his love of Britney Spears and binge watching the Real Housewives. Harvey also talks about dating while filming in Canada, and what he might be looking for in a partner. Enjoy this delightful and thoughtful episode!
Wow, it's New Years and we have a fantastic episode for you to close out 2021. Claybourne Elder, from Broadway's Company and the upcoming show, The Gilded Age. Dave and Matt bring up House Of Gucci and the many Italian accents to sort through in the film, while Claybourne discusses his recent binging of Disney movies. Claybourne also talks about his pathway to Broadway, from studying in France as a teenager without asking his parents, to being the youngest in a mormon family of 8. Dave asks about Company, in which Claybourne plays the role of Andy the flight attendant, which is an incredible show on Broadway right now that everyone should go see!
Happy Holidays from the Homophilia crew! This week, as a holiday treat, Sam Sanders joins Dave and Matt to discuss their feelings about the year, how quarantine has turned into a peaceful state of living for Sam, and his growing obsession with Dua Lipa. Our hosts ask Sam about growing up without Christmas and haircuts, being a band kid, coming out later in life, and his views now on religion and personal spirituality. And of course, Dave and Matt ask about how Sam met his partner and how communicating on and off the mic helps the relationship thrive.
This week's Homophilia features the brilliant Parvesh Cheena! Matt, Dave, and Parvesh get into quick thoughts of the And Just Like That premiere, as well as binging through Drag Race for the entire pandemie. Parvesh details his time in theater in high school, growing up in the midwest, the days of keeping MTV on all the time, doing improv with our very own Dave Holmes, staying away from Facebook, being grateful for quality animation, and meeting his partner on good old Scruff.
It’s a very refreshing week with George Ramsay on this episode of Homophilia. Dave and Matt ask George about breathwork, something Dave has been practicing and loving as of late. They all discuss how George began his career in breathwork, and what is happening in your body while practicing. George also talk about the experience of being closeted in North Carolina, leaving his career in teacher to pursue wellness, and how the practice has changed his life. Dave and Matt also ask George about being a die hard fan of Britney from the beginning, and how he met his partner. Finally you can look forward to a small preview of breath work from George to use during stressful times over the holidays.

Lovely, delightful, talented, Cheyenne Jackson
I discovered Homophilia at the top of the pandemic and have enjoyed many of Matt & Dave's interviews. And while I think that technical limitations have sometimes contributed to an awkward distance between them and their guests, it was certainly not the case with Cheyenne. The co-hosts often describe their guests as delightful, lovely, and talented, but Cheyenne was truly all of those things and more. They all vibed together in a friendly, familiar way that that had me wishing the episode wouldn't end. More with this energy and chemistry, please! Love ya!
Fun content, great guests. Keep it light and fun, even if you don’t care about Jen/Friends ;)
