In this episode of Heterophobic, we cover some of our most formative, and most embarrassing, queer media touchstones. We talk about queerness and gender in media, and we take a walk down memory lane through a deep dive into Netflix's old Gay and Lesbian section. We're also bringing you two NEW games this week in the form of a very gay 'Would you Rather' and "Hettie Problems".
In this episode of Heterophobic we talk all about RENT! We start this week with another game of f**k/marry/f**k their girlfriend, and then move on to a discussion about all things RENT-related. We cover intersectional and coalitional politics, ACT UP and the AIDS epidemic in New York, and of course musical theater nerdiness. We end with another round of Make S**t Gay.
In this episode of Heterophobic, we tackle the topics of bodies and desire. We talk about what it is to inhabit a marginalized body, fat liberation, disability, and our various queer and trans identities. We also talk about what its like to dress our bodies, and how personal style is complicated by, and intersects with, queerness and fatness. We also play another game of Horse/Bird/Muffin, and for the first (and last) time, play a round of "how far can you L-Word?"
In this episode of the Heterophobic podcast we talk about all things food related! We cover social justice as it relates to food, and questions of bodies, queerness, desire, and the racialization of the healthy/unhealthy dichotomy. We also talk about food media, our dream meals, build our ideal queer dinner party and play another round of F**k, Marry, F**k their Girlfriend.
In this episode of Heterophobic, we cover ghosts, witches, the occult, and queer worlds within and beyond this one. We also talk about the ways in which our current cultural landscape is haunted by white supremacy and colonialism. We discuss which supernatural friends we most strongly identify with, play a new game called "Horse, Bird, Muffin" and theorize about queering everyday straight cultural touchstones.
Special thanks to Way Worse for letting us use their amazing music!
In the inaugural episode of Heterophobic we discuss what queerness means to us. Through an admittedly winding discussion, we attempt to wrap our queer brains around our politics, identities, and the ways in which we move through the world. We talk about queer identity, politics, and community and culture, and throw in a silly gay game to wrap things up.
