    Ep 11 - DRUGS and The LGBT Community

    Ep 11 - DRUGS and The LGBT Community

    Drugs! How prevalent are they in our queer community and should we tolerate or just cope with them? What do we do when we see someone struggling with addiction or wanting to play while high? Our guest Stephan Ferris (AKA: Blue Bailey) talks with us about his own personal struggles and the book he wrote about them: BLUE MOVIE

    Since our Gear Up Q&A went so well - we thought we would answer some more this month. We took questions from our viewers and answered them the only way we knew how. Hilarity ensues...

    Ep9 - Uniforms and Costumes and Leather Daddies - OH MY!

    Uniformally, I'm surprised we didn't talk about this sooner. Today's talk titularly teeters on all things Uniform. From costumes to leather cops to our tenacious guest Thib, it's a convo that gets deep into leather roots, while asking what leather uniforms mean and can look like in today's scene.

    Ep 7 - When We Quilt - Cleve Jones

    Ep 7 - When We Quilt - Cleve Jones

    Cleve Jones is an LGBT+ activist who initiated the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, an endeavor that brought attention to the AIDS epidemic in the 80s through 90s. This history is not taught in our schools so we are very honored to talk about it with the man who was a true pioneer in bringing us all together. We remember the Aids Memorial Quilt and the impact it still has on our community as we weather the AIDS crises.
