"Getting 'Bravo Dyke' Out There" w/ Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya (Re-release)

We're makin' it NICE this episode with our fave L-Word reviewer and writer, Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya! But we're not dyking out about Gen Q. We're dissecting the Real Housewives franchise for all the queer and queer-coded content it regularly serves up. These ladies are acting gay AND doing crimes, so what's more queer than that? And they're not just acting gay, some franchises have queer women amongst the cast. Also, we manage to make comparisons to The L Word. We make the case that The Real Housewives is a great show to watch with your significant other. Plus, we give our REAL gayest things from Provincetown. And we learn straight people will see what they want to see when reading your gay t-shirt. Finally, we end on one of our trickiest listener questions yet!

"Being Present With Birds" w/ Grace Bonney (Re-release)

The bird's the word on this episode with author and blogger Grace Bonney. Grace's love of watching birds is queer and contagious. So what's the big deal about birding anyway? How can it positively affect your mental health? What's the community like? Why does it feel so queer? Which birds seem most sapphic? Are all pigeons elder queers? We answer all these questions and nerd out about so much more. Plus, we also talk about Grace's latest book, Collective Wisdom, and what they learned in the process of writing it. Also, find out if the omicron variant hindered Carolyn and Melody's gayness this week. Finally, we strap in for a listener question about strap-on etiquette.

"Too Much Breast Happening" w/ Michelle Badillo (Re-release)

First, another update from Carolyn! Then, another favorite ep of ours! Listen to Carolyn's new podcast Love's A Pitch on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. Breasts, boobs, boobies, knockers, tits, titters, titties, honkers, hooters, melons, jugs, tatas - whatever you call them, we're dyking out about them with the crazy talented and boobacious Michelle Badillo (One Day At A Time, Vida, The Bold Type). Michelle and Melody bond over the trauma and triumphs of having large breasts, while Carolyn struggles to relate to their shared nipple experiences. Whether they're big, small, or in between, are we all doomed to feel like we can't win with them? Or even without them? Plus, we geek out over Michelle's amazing career that's just getting started. And, we reflect on this Jenny Schecter of a year. You'll also find out if your hosts survived the holidays, are how much PDA they forced on their family members. Finally, we wrap it up with the perfect chaotic question to end this chaotic year. As a reminder, you can listen to past Dyking Off Topic episodes with Carolyn and Melody on our Patreon for $5/month.

"Two Lesbians Can Be Just Friends" w/ Valerie Complex (Re-Release)

Listen to Carolyn's new podcast Love's A Pitch on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. We are THRILLED to be joined by the astute and prolific Valerie Complex to talk about all things Portrait of a Lady On -- Er...Female Gaze. We definitely do not spend half of this episode talking about how much we love a certain sapphic film and instead talk about why it makes a huge difference to treat women as subjects, not objects, on screen. Valerie is a film critic and freelance writer, and also a member of Portrait nation. Oh no, we did it again. We swear that's not all we talk about. There's also much discussion about negative experiences we've had in France, like when Valerie went to Cannes and saw - you guessed it - Portrait of a Lady On Fire. After nerding out about or favorite femme-heavy flicks, we answer an interesting question from a listener who is hung up on a past fling!

"Doctor Role Play" w/ Ro White (Re-release)

Listen to Carolyn's new podcast Love's A Pitch on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. Let's talk about hand sex, baby! Ro White is the new sex and dating editor at Autostraddle, and they're here to get fist-deep into our topic. Though as we learn, fisting is about fullness, not depth. We dyke out about the benefits of digital stimulation, and the role it plays in queer sex. Period sex? Squirting? Fisting? Masturbation? We're rounding all the bases. Plus, Ro talks about how Autostraddle is truly doing the gay lord's work by bringing the queerest, inclusive content to help you navigate your love life. But first, Carolyn and Melody recap their first L Word watch parties as Henrietta Hudson. And, see if they can top those events for their gayest thing! Plus, we end with a different type of listener question that required a little extra prep. Enjoy, and stay sexy!

"Hot, Talented, and Funny" w/ Jasmin Savoy and Liv Hewson (Re-release)

Some more updates from Carolyn, and a re-release of a time-relevant episode: We've got a delightful mix of queer joy and cannibalism on the agenda with actors Liv Hewson and Jasmin Savoy (Yellowjackets on Showtime). First, we get all of our fangirling out of the way by asking about our favorite new show, as well as Scream, Santa Clarita Diet, and other projects these two talents have under their very gay belts. Then, we talk about their new podcast (Most Presents: The Homo Schedule) and what it means to spread queer joy. Also, we feel inspired to take a cue from our guests and bring a game into the ep, so get ready to play Gay Or Straight Agenda along with us! Finally, we end with a question from a listener who feels like they're out of love luck. Just in time for Valentine's Day.

"Walk Like An Egyptian" w/Sabrina Jalees (Re-release)

Listen to Carolyn's new podcast Love's A Pitch on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. The super hilarious Sabrina Jalees (Carol's Second Act) is letting us get all up in her jizzness as we dyke out about her queer family. Sabrina gives us all the deets into how Wolfie came to be, and why she's the daddy. We talk about how queer families are still sometimes othered, but we're also freaking out every time we see one in the wild. Plus, why are straight people always telling us who will steal our baby? And if that's not enough, we crack the code on how to signal to others that you're queer. We've got a whole lineup of gayest things to talk through this week as we are truly living our best lives. Finally, we end on a question from a listener who isn't really feeling her sweet pandemic boyfriend.

"The Coolest Lesbian Aesthetic" w/ Joanna Bradley (Re-Release)

Madras shorts, Kangol hats, 'Menswear,' vests, bold blazers, purposefully bad dye jobs...the spectrum of style in our community is wide and varied. So what is the lesbian aesthetic? Writer and comedian Joanna Bradley (SNL, The Break with Michelle Wolf) reflects on her own style, and that of other queer women she's encountered over the years. Can you tell if someone is a lez just by looking at them? What's that thing that makes you see someone and think "they're on my team?" Are style choices just holdovers from previous decades, or are we just admiring the trends that came before us? Has our fashion always influenced the straights, or is TikTok making us mainstream? But first, Melody breaks down why Demi dodged a bullet, and Carolyn confesses her questionable lesbian fashion choice. Then again, isn't a utilitarian fashion choice the most lesbian of all? Finally, we end with a listener question that coincidently ties nicely into our banter about Demi's ex-fiance.

Comedian/Writer/Actor and all-around queer darling Mae Martin joins us to dyke out about fluidity this week.

"You Can Love Multiple People" w/ Ashley Ray (Re-release)

If monogamy isn't for you, you never want to merge bank accounts with someone, but you're got a lot of love to give (and hope to receive it back), then perhaps solo polyamory is right for you! Comedian and writer Ashley Ray has been living that solo polyamory life (in a pandemic no less!) and joins us to correct common misconceptions about her love life. We talk about the funny and tragic red flags she sifts through when dating, how people react to her relationship structure, and why structure and communication are so important. Plus, she talks about her wild zodiac dating experiment which we hope gets made into a TV show. This episode just may leave you polycurious! Plus, Carolyn and Melody talk about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The DNC, The Chicks, and our polar opposite gayest things of the week! Finally, we end with a question from a listener who seems to be the victim of an emotional terrorist.

"We Are Not Possessions" w/ Alysia Brown (Re-release)

We implore her to share her tips and go-to moves so that our listeners can learn from her experience.

"Not Being Near Men" w/ Casey Jane Ellison (Re-release)

Dykes just wanna have fun, and here to tell us all about it is herlarious comedian, performer, and artist Casey Jane Ellison! It's hard to put into words what makes being a lesbian so dang fun, but that didn't stop us from trying! Is it the sex? The freedom from the male gaze? Underwater waterfalls? THE SEX? Is every commercial featuring a person slo-mo running through a field just an ad for lesbianism? Maybe it is, MAYBE IT IS, Plus, Carolyn and Melody reluctantly make New Year's Resolutions, including a pledge that gets off to a Rosie- er...ROCKY start. Finally, we end with a questions from a listener who is nervous about upcoming physical changes in their partner. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram -Help more folks find us and Leave Us a 5-star Review if you like what you hear! -Theme song by There Is No Mountain Sponsored by BetterHelp Online Therapy: As a listener, you’ll get 10% off your first month by visiting our sponsor at betterhelp.com/do  Learn more about your ad choices.

NOTE: This interview took place before Molly started using they/them pronouns. We're in the thick of Pride month and cooked up this TREAT of an episode with the super funny and wonderful Molly Kearney (Saturday Night Live). Molly lives their life loud and proud, and they make it seem so fun and effortless. What is this beautiful butch dyke's origin story? What gay things is this double-cannon wielding comedian up to?

Feeling fine after a night of four meme-inspired drinks, Editorial Director Kerensa Cadenas (New York Magazine) joins us to talk about sapphic TV, bisexual signaling, and dating.

"Rabbit Syphilis" w/ Maddie Wiener - Ep. 254

Did we convince comedian Maddie Wiener (Comedy Central) to unplug and move to the country on this week's episode?

"Conflict Is Not Abuse" w/ Becca Blackwell (Re-release)

We're recovering from Dinah Shore and are re-releasing another favorite ep from the archives. This episode is everything and nothing, because that's where we always end up when discussing labels. But to us, it's actually everything because we're d*king out with the hilarious and entertaining Becca Blackwell (High Maintenance on HBO)! We talk about their gender and sexuality journey, as well as their relationship to labels throughout their life. What happens when we hold individual definitions for shared labels? Is it okay to disagree about what they mean? What are the spaces we create for our identities and who can occupy them? Can a trans masc person still be a dyke? (ABSOLUTELY). -Get extra content (mostly) EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

"TikTok Ya Don't Stop" w/ Rosie O'Donnell (Re-release)

It's the re-release of our 200th episode with one and only Rosie O'Donnell fulfilling the Dyking Out prophecy. Rosie has been doing press for her new show, and it's very interesting to hear her now talking about updates on a lot of the topics we touch on in this interview from a year ago! It may have taken four years of wishing this moment into existence (okay, maybe we did a LITTLE more than wishing), but we finally have our chance to dyke out with Rosie about our favorite topic: Rosie! How is she adjusting to life in L.A.? Why we won't be seeing her character Carrie having sex on this season of The L Word: Generation Q? Plus, all the gay things you've ever wanted to know about A League of Their Own, Now and Then, and other roles. We also learn about her experiences adopting children as a lesbian, coming out, and dating--including how NOT to ask her out. No matter the topic, Rosie makes it fun, interesting, and gay. And would you expect any different from the ultimate Dykon?

We did it. We finally took a gaycation together. Podcaster and Cherry Grove connoisseur Jess Rothschild (Hot Takes and Deep Dives) joins us once more to talk about our magical, misandrist (for Carolyn) weekend on Fire Island. Did we end up meeting Wanda Sykes? How does it compare to PTown? What's the difference in the vibe between Cherry Grove and The Pines? And is there another destination that we can turn into a sapphic paradise? Plus, we review our new favorite drag acts.

"Dole Whip & P*ssy" w/ Colette McIntyre -Ep. 251

Fresh off influencing the gravitational pull of the moon amongst a sea of queers, writer/comedian/past guest Colette McIntyre joins us to talk about a complicated trip to a different kind of magical place. One with garbage cans worth stanning. One with shirts about wanting and giving the "D." One with riddles and pins and barbershop quartets and vegan soft serve. Yes, Colette went to Disneyland for the first time as an adult and lived to tell about it. We dissect her experience and try to understand the draw for the queer community. Plus, we do our best to project our sexuality onto Disney stories and characters. An no, it's not just the villains. And yes, all the villains are gay. Lastly, is it worth losing all your friends to have a wedding photo opp with Mickey and Minnie? -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

"The Queer Mecca" w/ Mariah Hanson - Ep. 250

We're counting down the weeks until we can wish folks a "Happy Dinah" IRL in Palm Springs. And to get us even more pumped for the occasion, we're dyking out with the founder of the largest lesbian event in the world, Mariah Hanson! So how did Mariah go from getting all parties banned on her college campus to putting on a queer music festival in the desert? What are the challenges in keeping the event focused on queer women while also being inclusive to all genders and identities? What keeps the celesbians coming back year after year? We cover all of this, and more. And by more we mean bees. There's a healthy amount of bee discourse. Plus, Carolyn and Melody obsess over the new A League of Their Own series.

"Ellen, But Violent" w/ Rachel Kaly - Ep. 249

Maybe he knows it, maybe he doesn't, but Timothée Chalamet definitely needs comedian Rachel Kaly in his life. Rachel details her very relatable admiration of our favorite (and only) male dykon, along with a crazy wonderful story that proves we live in a simulation. So how did Rachel go from a Cracker Barrel shirt and tie-wearing nine-year-old telling jokes at Gotham, to a master Ellen DeGeneres impersonator, to an agent of hilarious onstage chaos? Give this ep a listen and find out! Plus, Melody becomes a birth certificate sleuth for the gayest reason possible, and Carolyn takes credit for dyking up PTown. -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Comedian (and hopefully new bff of the pod) Sheria Mattis joins us to ask all the right questions about studs and fibroids. Well, technically she answers more than she asks about fibroids, but we truly go on a reproductive health journey this episode. Plus, we talk about desired technological updates for straps and those who wear them. Also, Sheria makes Carolyn rethink her gay origin story, while Melody becomes convinced she should get checked for fibroids. -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Is it okay to compete in couples therapy? How can a bulldog be ugly? Are lesbian personal trainers better? And why does Eman want people to touch her arms, but "just a little?"

From defending Cara Delevigne's public behavior, to calling out a that's-so-questionable marriage, to stanning the messiest queers . And yet, we don't get a change to dish on some of the top hot goss because we get derailed by corporate pride weirdness. But we do have time for Liza's glowing review of Love's A Pitch. Plus, what happens when creators call Liza out on her posts? Also, we know we tease a juicy Patreon ep, but that will come in a few weeks because we had too much fun recording and ran out of time.

So take a listen and remember slightly less terrifying times as comedy writer Ely Kreimendahl teaches us about dramatic psycho therapy and so much more! Carolyn and Ely bond over their time at school in Boston where they struggled to feel comfortable around lesbians. Then, we talk about Twitter trolls and trauma and when it's right to delete the tweet. Plus, we learn about Ely's experience with straight people who wrongly assume her and her husband are a cis straight couple.

We do our best Nancy Drew impression and try to piece together why this gaycation destination centers cis gay men. For real, we want to know why aren't there lesbian orgies abound in the artsiest, most dog-friendly part of Cape Cod. Can not even the self-proclaimed Lord Of The Lesbians turn things around? Plus, why is Mitra looking to ditch the "straight side" of her bisexuality, and who else has heard of Concordia University?

"Playing The Long Game" w/ Sammi Cohen - Ep. 234

Melody Kamali got stuck sitting weird in a chair (she had a last-minute conflict) and won't be on this week's episode. But we wanted to record it and put it out anyway because we are so excited to talk about the movie we all wish existed in our formative years. We've got Sammi Cohen talking all things Crush (streaming now on Hulu), a new queer coming-of-age romcom that will have you speaking in puns. Or signing up for sports you're not good at. Or learning how to skateboard. Do we finally have the queer movie we've always wanted? What went on behind the scenes to ensure an authentic and entertaining story? How did Sammi bring her own experiences to the film? Why do straight girls keep insisting on tickling each other's backs? In terms of queer storytelling, where do we go from here? We hope you love this movie as much as we do! -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

YouTuber (or video essayist, pick your poison) and ex-philosopher Natalie Wynn, known by most as ContraPoints, joins us to d*ke out about our strange digital relationships.

How far would you go to spend the most time with your best friend who you happen to be in love with but may not be fully aware of that fact? Probably not as far as Aby!

The Chart w/ Zara Barrie - Ep. 231

How many lines connect you to your local Shane on The Chart? Lesbian aficionada, writer, author, and performer Zara Barrie joins us to explore the tangled webs we weave in our community. Is it okay to hook up with a friend's ex? Why do 'charts' feel more real in smaller cities? When queer women go after straights, is it because they've exhausted their own chart? Should we put all our projects on hold to make a master Celesbian chart? Which one of us is the real Alice Pieszecki? Okay, we don't address that last one, but feel free to let us know your opinion. Plus, Melody gays up the Grammy's and Carolyn wants to change an icon's life story.

Also, we learn about why they got into drumming and the amazing mentor who guided them. Plus, how are G Flip's Aussie fans handling them settling down in L.A.? You'll have to just listen to find out!

Empathy w/ Dylan Marron - Ep. 229

This episode is for anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of mean remarks or straight up hatorade. Writer, podcaster, and comedian Dylan Marron joins us to talk about the power of empathy through lessons he's learned by talking to the people who make nasty comments to him online. We talk about his podcast and new book with the same name, Conversations With People Who Hate Me. Plus, we break down the motivations for seeking out information about strangers who hurt us on the internet. And once you get that information, what power does it have? Also, Dylan shares his thoughts on calling haters "trolls," shares his hopes for our listeners, attempts to explain Turtle Bay, and more! Also, Carolyn thinks she's found the queerest place in NYC while Melody ventures to Astoria.

Lesbian Pop Culture w/ Jill Gutowitz - Ep. 228

Yesterday's "uber d*ke" is today's "it girl," and we've got Jill Gutowitz (Girls Can Kiss Now) on the pod to explain how we got here. Jill holds our triggered hands and walks us through the key moments in lesbian pop culture that scarred us, and eventually freed us. How is Perez Hilton different from wishful queers? Why hasn't Lindsay Lohan been herself? What is it about Neve Campbell's bangs? Also, what do milfs have to do with expressing desire for physical harm? We explore these questions and more. And, if you want even more on these topics, check out Jill's new book, Girls Can Kiss Now. If you love it, be sure to leave a positive review! Plus, both our gayest things involve music videos.

TV Writing w/ Brittani Nichols - Ep. 227

We often talk about the lack of authentic and funny queer stories, and TV writers like Brittani Nichols (Abbott Elementary, Black Lady Sketch Show) are doing the work to give our community the content we crave. Hear how Brittani went from TV nerd to pitching jokes in the writer's room. What are some challenges that TV writers face when trying to tell our stories? What's it like to work with other queer writers? How can we get to more authentic stories? How does Brittani balance her career with social justice work?

Rejection w/ Alysia Hush - Ep. 226

We hope comedian Alysia Hush felt the opposite of rejection while dyking out with us this week. Rejection is something we all face - some of us more than others. But how we deal with it makes all the difference. We talk about the differences between personal and professional rejection, how we bounce back, when we accept the L, and when to take it personally. We also talk about rejection in dating, including memorable embarrassing rejections. Plus, Melody's gayest thing surprises Carolyn, while Carolyn runs into celesbians at Stonewall.

What do people think of it in the crafting community? What are the stereotypes and misconceptions about knitters? How do you even get started? What role does technology play in knitting. We explore these questions and also learn why the rainbow scarf that Carolyn gifted a girlfriend years ago may have doomed the relationship. Also, be sure to swing by Good Judy in Brooklyn for Ty's craft night, or any night so you can say hi and tip generously! Plus, Carolyn explains what solidarity tassels are, while Melody makes being attacked by a dog gay.

First, we get all of our fangirling out of the way by asking about our favorite new show, as well as Scream, Santa Clarita Diet, and other projects these two talents have under their very gay belts. Then, we talk about their new podcast (Most Presents: The Homo Schedule) and what it means to spread queer joy. Also, we feel inspired to take a cue from our guests and bring a game into the ep, so get ready to play Gay Or Straight Agenda along with us!

Do you miss the days of feverishly calling into Total Request Live? Longing for the time when everyone knew the same choreography and it had nothing to do with TikTok? Comedian Pamela Ross joins us to talk about the slow-dying piece of pop culture known as the music video. Who used to be considered music video royalty? And is there anyone comparable today? Why were they so sexy? What low-brow dummies actually loved The Bum Bum Song (spoiler: it was Carolyn). This episode is like an audio-only pop-up video with opinions and foggy recollections instead of facts! Plus, our gayest things lean heavily into astrology.

Have you ever wondered if non-monogamy is right for you? What steps should couples take before opening up a relationship? Why are there so few accurate representations of it in media?

(But remember if you want even more personal experiences, you have to sign up for our Patreon where you'll get a bonus episode each week!) Plus, Carolyn reveals what may just be her gayest thing yet!

And how do we know who we should be listening to for guidance? Plus, what does calling someone in have to do with food stuck in teeth? Also, Melody FINALLY comes around on flags.

90s Queer Subtext w/ Nayomi Reghay - Ep. 219

Did you love that queer storyline in Empire Records, or were you not watching it through rainbow-colored glasses? Comedian and writer Nayomi Reghay joins us to talk about things that felt super gay in the 90s, but probably weren't meant to. But with such limited content that was explicitly queer, we were forced to create our own narratives. It didn't help that every teen heartthrob looked like a soft butch, or that the lead actress in a romcom always had a female friend who only cared about her. And sure, she's not subtext, but we just had to talk about our good friend Ro, and Nayomi is the reason why Carolyn met Rosie in the first place. We also address important questions, like, "Is making banana bread gay?" Plus, Carolyn and Melody book a couple of gaycations.

Queer Imposter Syndrome w/ Janet Hyde - Ep. 218

FEMALE comedian Janet Hyde joins us to talk about her past struggles with self-diagnosed Queer Imposter Syndrome. Have you ever felt like you weren't queer enough? Do lesbian cultural references have you scratching your head? Or do actual lesbians have you doubting yourself? (Shame on them!). Many people have wrestled with feeling unsure of their place in the queer community. Especially bi/pan/queer folks. And especially when first coming out. But are we holding ourselves to standards that aren't based in reality? And what can we do to overcome those feelings of not being enough? You know, besides getting engaged to another queer person. Plus, Carolyn's gayest thing reminds Melody of her bisexual awakening, and Melody tries to take down a bigoted two-steppin' hot spot once and for all! Finally, we end with not one, but TWO listener questions! -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Plus, all the gay things you've ever wanted to know about A League of Their Own, Now and Then, and other roles. We also learn about her experiences adopting children as a lesbian, coming out, and dating--including how NOT to ask her out. No matter the topic, Rosie makes it fun, interesting, and gay. And would you expect any different from the ultimate Dykon?

Real Housewives w/ Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya - Ep. 199

We're makin' it NICE this episode with our fave L-Word reviewer and writer, Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya! But we're not dyking out about Gen Q. We're dissecting the Real Housewives franchise for all the queer and queer-coded content it regularly serves up. These ladies are acting gay AND doing crimes, so what's more queer than that? And they're not just acting gay, some franchises have queer women amongst the cast. Also, we manage to make comparisons to The L Word. We make the case that The Real Housewives is a great show to watch with your significant other. Plus, we give our REAL gayest things from Provincetown. And we learn straight people will see what they want to see when reading your gay t-shirt. Finally, we end on one of our trickiest listener questions yet! -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Creative Pursuits w/ Bailey Pope - Ep. 198

Comedian Bailey Pope is dyking out with us about how her day job and dream job have more in common than one might assume. Telling jokes on a stage to strangers isn't all that different than years of having a captive audience in a salon seat. Especially at some comedy shows. Bailey talks about the queerness of the hair industry, and how her queer and trans identities are received there vs. in comedy. Plus, learn why she won't date within either field, and how to barter for what you want. Also, Carolyn and Melody try their best to predict their gayest thing as they head out on vacation. Finally, we end with a listener question about "straight" friend with a tendency to "twerk" on her. -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Hand Sex w/ Ro White - Ep. 197

Let's talk about hand sex, baby! Ro White is the new sex and dating editor at Autostraddle, and they're here to get fist-deep into our topic. Though as we learn, fisting is about fullness, not depth. We dyke out about the benefits of digital stimulation, and the role it plays in queer sex. Period sex? Squirting? Fisting? Masturbation? We're rounding all the bases. Plus, Ro talks about how Autostraddle is truly doing the gay lord's work by bringing the queerest, inclusive content to help you navigate your love life. But first, Carolyn and Melody recap their first L Word watch parties as Henrietta Hudson. And, see if they can top those events for their gayest thing!

Then, Brittany recalls what it was like losing her mom, and how she spent years ignoring the way it affected the relationships in her life. We also talk about how loss can shape your attachment style and the partners you pick. Plus, we discuss how TV and Movie characters who lose their moms early on tend to be queer-coded.

Odd One Out w/ Carly Montag - Ep. 192

No matter where you fall on the spectrum (even you, straights), or not matter how popular you are, we've all had moments (or lifetimes) of being the odd one out. Comedian Carly Montag (Alone At Lunch podcast) joins us to talk about the many times she felt like an outsider amongst friend and teammates. Why was she so dedicated to wearing overalls? Also, why are people so weird to redheads? And most importantly, how was she so gay without realizing it? But all these instances of feeling different shaped her into who she is today. And that's someone who can't stand to be in a room with another redhead. And also a proudly out comedian and podcaster who is finally living their authentic life. When was the last time you celebrated the things that make you different? Plus, Carolyn talks about her failure to communicate with ghosts, and Melody longs for a simpler, happier time: 2015. Finally, we end on a question from a Patron about queer Chicago nightlife. -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Queer Climate Change w/ Allison Reese - Ep. 191

Is it us, or is the queer community changing more rapidly than in the past? Comedian and writer Allison Reese joins us to talk about the affects of the internet and the passing of time on our perceptions of the (Kamala Harris voice) community. Where is queer culture created? Is the infighting as bad as Twitter makes it seem? Are we being so inclusive that we're better off just excluding cis straights? When will the meat eaters face their moment of reckoning? We also ask the very important question, "is it safe for cartoons to come out of the closet?" Plus, Carolyn and Melody try to pick their gayest moment that wrapped up a memorable pride month. And finally, we end with a question from a literal U-Hauler who is curious about co-habitation masturbation etiquette. -Get extra content EACH WEEK, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Also, Whit tells us about their work in advancing rights for the most vulnerable in the LGBTQ+ population. And for those of you looking for a pen pal, look into Pink & Black.

The Signs w/ Mackenzie Lansing - Ep. 183

The English teacher you wanted to be bffs with, that cartoon you were strangely attracted to, the time you dabbled in witchcraft, the binder of hot women you carried around. When you look back, it all seems SO OBVIOUS that you were not straight. Or did it? Actor and writer Mackenzie Lansing (Mare of Easttown, The Deuce) joins us to talk about all the signs that should have let us know we were queer YEARS before we figured it out. Some signs are painfully obvious, while others are just part of growing up and figuring out who you are. So should we really beat ourselves up for not putting the puzzle together sooner? And whose to know when the puzzle is actually complete? We also sneak in a couple of questions about what it's like to act across from Kate Winslet. Plus, Carolyn and Melody share a gayest thing of the week. And as always, we end with a listener question from a young U-Hauler who wants to overshare with her parents.

Reality Queers w/ Jess Rothschild - Ep. 181

This episode is full of fighting, drama, and gossip. But don't worry, we're not the ones involved. We're dyking out about the queers (and wannabes) of reality TV with writer and podcaster Jess Rothschild (Hot Takes and Deep Dives). It's a pretty significant episode in that after the conversation, Carolyn FINALLY watched Real Housewives of New York. We talk about the origin of Jess's love of reality TV, our favorite personalities over the years, what it's like to meet them in person and more. We also discuss shows that have been inclusive of queer people and our hopes for future representation. Plus, Jess gives insight as to why people love to watch these shows that are often dismissed as trash TV. But before our reality deep dive, we talk about where Carolyn will be for Memorial Day weekend and what has Melody in tears this week.

Shiva Baby w/ Emma Seligman - Ep. 179

Bisexual representation is buzzing in this episode about the movie everyone's talking about (or should be talking about): Shiva Baby! Writer/Director Emma Seligman joins us to byke out about the themes of the film, including the complicated dynamics between queer women, the intersection of family and sexuality, and sugaring. In fact, Emma indulges Carolyn's many questions about the world of sugaring and its presence on college campuses. Also, are lesbian fight clubs a thing?

Y'all ready for an episode that's a little bit country and a little bit queer? How about a lot of both? Country singer-songwriter Brooke Eden joins us to dyke out about Nashville's gay mafia and the changes on the country music scene. We had a blast learning about how her and her girlfriend got together, the struggles of keeping their relationship a secret, and best of all, the joy of openly living her truth. We also talked about what's changed since Chely Wright came out in 2010 and how Nashville (and it's music) is a lot gayer than people assume.

Feminism w/ Gabrielle Korn - Ep. 177

Feminism often feels like a dirty loaded word, but regardless of your gender, it's impossible to ignore. Editor and journalist Gabrielle Korn (NYLON, NETFLIX) joins us to dyke out about her experience confronting feminism head on while working in women's media. We discuss the themes of her new book, Everybody Else Is Perfect, and how feminism will never work if we a) aren't being intersectional and inclusive and b) include everybody but ourselves. Also, how does being queer affect our approach to feminism? And how do we dismantle the patriarchy? Plus, we announce a slight change to the pod and share bad experiences with strangers. Finally, we end on a question from a listener who can't afford to move out of the place they share with their ex.

Queerplatonic w/ Rachel Scanlon & McKenzie Goodwin - Ep. 176

Dyke worlds collide in this episode featuring Rachel Scanlon & McKenzie Goodwin from the Two Dykes and a Mic podcast. And with two sets of platonic co-hosts on hand, what better topic than exploring the world of queerplatonic relationships! How are queer friendships different? Is it possible to just be close friends with another queer person if you're attracted to their gender? Does having an abundance of queer friends make a difference? How do you maintain a close relationship and not catch feelings? Also, why won't Carolyn cuddle with Melody? Is it strange that Rachel and McKenzie are blocking sexual acts, or is it just another Tuesday? Plus, Carolyn indulges Melody's Huskies talk, but gets her back with TMI about hamster urine.

Lesbian Aesthetic w/ Joanna Bradley - Ep. 175

Madras shorts, Kangol hats, 'Menswear,' vests, bold blazers, purposefully bad dye jobs...the spectrum of style in our community is wide and varied. So what is the lesbian aesthetic? Writer and comedian Joanna Bradley (SNL, The Break with Michelle Wolf) reflects on her own style, and that of other queer women she's encountered over the years. Can you tell if someone is a lez just by looking at them? What's that thing that makes you see someone and think "they're on my team?" Are style choices just holdovers from previous decades, or are we just admiring the trends that came before us? Has our fashion always influenced the straights, or is TikTok making us mainstream? But first, Melody breaks down why Demi dodged a bullet, and Carolyn confesses her questionable lesbian fashion choice. Then again, isn't a utilitarian fashion choice the most lesbian of all? Finally, we end with a listener question that coincidently ties nicely into our banter about Demi's ex-fiance. FOLLOW US ON THE STEREO APP FREE FOR OUR 3X WEEKLY LIVESTREAM SHOW THE GAYEST THING.

Gay 90s w/ Dana Piccoli - Ep. 174

Put down that Delia's catalogue and tie your best flannel around your waist because we're dyking out about the Gay 90s with media maven Dana Piccoli (Queer Media Matters)! What is the women's soft rock, the riot grrrls, the gentle teen bop boys who reminded us of girls we crushed on? What exactly made the 90s so gay? Also, was the movie Foxfire kept hidden at Blockbuster for fear that it would turn an entire generation gay? Is Chasing Amy still annoying to watch? We answer as many of these questions as we can before mom picks up the phone and breaks our internet connection. Plus, Dana sells us on revisiting Showgirls now that we can watch it without having to buy tickets for Hackers before sneaking into the theater. Before we get to that schweet nostalgia convo, Carolyn reveals her gayest thing that MUST be kept hidden from Rosie. And, Melody may or may not have joined a cult. Finally, we end with a listener question that has us gushing. We hope you get jiggy with this episode. If not, you can talk to the hand.

Grilling w/ Julia Turshen - Ep. 173

Weber? I hardly know her! Yes, it's the first week in March, but it's never too soon to talk about grilling! Especially when home chef and author Julia Turshen is on hand to discuss tips, tricks, and best practices for this cooking method that isn't inherently queer but sure feels queer. Julia answered all our burning questions like, what are the best things to grill? Do you need 'dad' jokes in your back pocket to be a grill master? Charcoal or propane? And why can't cis men stop flipping and poking things? Before firing up the grill convo, we learn about the L Word-inspired recipe in her latest cookbook Simply Julia (out now) and her other approachable (and delicious) recipes. Plus, Melody asks Carolyn to clear up her past stance on Joss Whedon (boooo!), we tell you how much we care about I Care A Lot, and take a second to dunk on Oreo.

Gay Paris w/ Mélissa Laveaux - Ep. 172

What's 'The City Of Lights' like for les lesbians? Canadian singer-songwriter Mélissa Laveaux has spent the last 13 years living in gay ol' Paris and has some THOUGHTS. Mélissa takes us on a journey from her Canadian and Hatian roots, to her fatphobic immigration experience, to experiences with relationships and racism, and more. She pulls back the curtain on common misconceptions about French culture and life in the big city we love (despite our many critiques and questionable experiences).

Bi-Pan Myths w/ Natasha Negovanlis - Ep. 171

Hello Dykes and Bykes! We have a PANtastic episode with the one and only Natasha Negovanlis (Carmilla, Vanlis Presents) about the myths and misconceptions surrounding Bi and Pan identities. What are they, and why are they still so prevalent? Do Bi and Pan folks feel like they have to adjust their gender and sexuality performance based on who they're with? We ultimately resolve every single issue that Bi/Pan people face and do so in a record amount of time. We also might need to mail Natasha our Gay Champion Of The Week trophy, because her gayest thing takes the crown. But first, the review of The Word To Come you never knew you wanted.

Celesbian Gossip w/ Liza Dye - Ep. 170

We're serving up sapphic scoops with comedian Liza Dye, all in the name of good, clean, and hopefully not mean, celesbian fun. When she's not writing for TV shows or being asked about her well-known, traumatic NYC experience, Liza runs a popular celesbian gossip insta account. We talk about why we love to know whose vaping courtside together, and how it's different than coverage of straight celebs. From Kenny to Cara to Queen Latifah, we shared our thoughts and theories. By the way, if you hear little whimpers in the background, those are from Liza's dogs and NOT Armie Hammer's next meal. Plus, our resident scam-lover got scammed, and Carolyn advances the gay agenda in corporate America. Finally, we wrap it up with a question from a listener who is having a rough time getting rough in bed. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

How do perceptions of murderers differ based on gender? Have we achieved murder parity? What are the signs you might be dating a murderer? Is it weird to have a favorite? Why are there two famous Australian lesbian vampire murder stories? Plus, Carolyn can't help but objectify the new first and second families, and Melody trades baby formula for allyship.

And, Carolyn checks in with Melody to make sure she doesn't risk getting red-pilled. Finally, we end with a listener question that might spawn ten related listener questions.

Happy holiGAYS! Due to popular demand, we're releasing our Patreon off-topic episode featuring past guest, filmmaker Erica Rose - sandwiched between new content of course. We love Erica's opinions and takes on film, and she did not disappoint with her analysis of Hulu's Happiest Season. Why did this movie stir up so many feelings and so much debate in the community? Why are the reactions so varied? Why is Harper...there? We dive deep and explore all the things it could have been, while appreciating the good things that came with it. Besides the coats and blazers. Okay...maybe just the coats and blazers. No really, some of us (Carolyn) enjoyed it more than others (Melody & Erica), and that's OKAY. The important thing is that we're talking about it, right? And by "it" we mean Aubrey Plaza. PLUS, Melody talks about the Iranian holiday that gets overshadowed by Festivus. Carolyn shares the story of her NYC send-off that almost involved a crime scene. Also, #TwoDinkies. Finally, we end with an appropriate listener question given the topic for the week.

Boxing w/ Klea Blackhurst - Ep. 162

Ding ding ding! We're dyking out with singer and actor Klea Blackhurst about Boxing! Klea performs at the most legendary venues in New York City, but when she's not channeling her inner Ethel Merman, she's shadowboxing as The Belter! But how does one overcome the huge intimidation factor to get into boxing? What's it like to train with the pros? What are some of the big misconceptions about it? We also talk about life in the city with our performance spaces closed for nearly a year, and how we're adjusting. Plus, Carolyn goes against Melody's wishes and talks about The Prom. And, Melody gets called out for being a creep at her local bodega. Finally, we end with a serious listener question that requires expertise that one of our co-hosts happens to have! -Get extra content (Like our Happiest Season review with Erica Rose and Queer Questions with Mara Wilson), Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Musicals w/ Mara Wilson - Ep. 161

Come on babe, why don't we dyke out about musicals with the OG book witch, Mara Wilson (Matilda, Welcome To Night Vale)! Though good queer representation is sparse in Broadway's history, we've mastered the art of relating to the gentle lads who softly pine over women. Or the leading ladies with short haircuts who made us feel weird inside before we realized why. Mara shares her early memories of musical theater that led to a lifelong admiration of the art form. We also talk about crushes, past and present, including the one that so many queer women have on Mara's former co-star. And before we get into our topic, Carolyn and Melody give a VERY detailed review of Ammonite, including key time stamps. Plus, Hotmessbian hotties, Elliot Page, a simple plea to our listeners, and more! Finally, we end with a question about a lingering ex. -Get extra content (Like our Happiest Season review with Erica Rose and Queer Questions with Mara Wilson), Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

But I'm A Cheerleader is truly the gift that keeps on giving, and we get to hear from Jamie how it all came together, what it's like to look back on it, and what has changed since its 1999 release. We ask all our burning questions about Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall, and the answers do not disappoint. Look our for the director's cut this December 8 with added scenes and all sorts of fun extras. Plus, we tease our take on Happiest Season, Melody reveals she's a marketing mastermind, and Carolyn officially becomes a homeowner/homo-owner.

Community w/ Kristen Kaza - Ep. 159

We all want it, we all need it, but sometimes, we're not quite sure how to find it. That's why people like Kristen Kaza dedicate their lives to building community through events and creating "brave spaces" for LGBTQIA folks. Kristen is the party guru, event planner, and activist behind Reunion Chicago, Chicago’s beloved queer dance party Slo 'Mo, and more. She has worked on holding space and building events and gatherings where the LGBTQIA community can connect with, enjoy, and sometimes, challenge each other. We talk about how our communities are changing, and how COVID has shifted the way we connect. Plus, Melody implores our listeners to shed light on the Beaver festival, while Carolyn attempts to save her queer cred by binging gay movies.

Intersex w/ Maria Tridas - Ep. 158

We're shining a much needed spotlight on the "I" in LGBTQIA with video producer/host and intersex activist Maria Tridas! Being intersex is about as common as being a natural redhead, so why is being intersex treated as a rare anomaly instead of a naturally occurring biological variation? How has our understanding of being intersex changed over the years, and how can we be better allies? What do many intersex people not even know that they're intersex? We cover these questions and much more. Please note: Although Maria is very comfortable discussing details about their body, not all intersex individuals feel the same. This is a very personal and individual topic. Please do not assume that intersex, NB, trans folks want to or should discuss details of their bodies. We also talk about Melody's trip down South to see her family, make a case for gay athletes to hook up with each other, and talk up the amazing lineup for our fundraiser to save the lesbian bars! Finally, we answer a question from a listener who is considering one night stands now that her relationship has "restructured."

Rec Leagues w/ Lindsay Boling - Ep. 157

It's not about whether you win or lose, it's about finding a girlfriend while you're playing the game! At least that's the dream on this episode about Rec Leagues with comedian and former Division I soccer player Lindsay Boling (NY Comedy Festival). Not a rec league person? Well you're in luck, because we recorded this episode during election week. No, that doesn't mean we talked about politics instead of our topic. It means we were drinking, so it only took so long before the conversation about team sports turned into reminiscing about MySpace and emo bands. Also, for a week filled with doom scrolling/refreshing, it managed to be VERY gay. Finally, we end with a listener question about journaling which made Melody's day! -Get extra content (like out chat about Bly Manor or Queer Questions with Lindsay Boling), Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Halloween w/ A Ghost - Ep. 156

It might sound like it's just Carolyn and Melody on this haunting episode, but there's totally a ghost there. You just have to have "a gift" to hear it. Don't believe us? Then how else would you explain the unfortunate series of events that led to us having to can an awesome interview with one of our favorite comedians? Bad audio? Not on our watch 2020! (Okay...maybe on our watch...). We're dyking out about our favorite holiday, what makes it queer, and how we like to celebrate it.

We hope you're expecting a lot of laughs this episode, because we plan to deliver. Comedian Mo Welch (Blair, Conan) joins us to dyke out about her journey to making a baby! Come for the conversation around what it's like to be gay while trying to get pregnant, and stay for the crazy story of Mo's first trip to NYC with one Ali Clayton. It involves Cubby Hole, Ricki Lake, and so much more. But back to the baby thing... How do lesbians get sperm? How do you decide who carries? Does realizing your gay affect your desire to have children? Plus, we give our official U-Hauloween recap, and Melody talks about a traumatic massage that was anything but (or BUTT?) relaxing. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is worried that the woman they're seeing might have a much higher sex drive.

No trick and all treat, author emily m. danforth (Plain Bad Heroines, The Miseducation of Cameron Post) joins us this week to dyke out about all things sapphic and spooky.

Plus, Emily gives us the scoop on her latest novel full of gothic mischief and oh-so-gay. We also talk about our costumes from U-Hauloween and learn more about how Ali's mom tries to be an Ali.

Love w/ Amy Ordman & Jack Dodge - Ep. 153

We say love is love, but how much do we really know about love? Youtuber Amy Ordman and her Dating Straight podcast co-host Jack Dodge join us to dyke about that thing that makes existing in this world a little sweeter. Is there a shared understanding of love? How do you know if you are in love? Is it weird to not want to be in love? Is being in love worth the pain that comes with it? We rack our brains trying to answer these questions and more.

If so, then you'll relate to Comedian Samantha Ruddy (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee) who joins us to dyke out about her experience with dating her ex! We're here, we're queer, and our breakups are messy. Sometimes, they don't even feel like a real breakup. Sometimes, you still sleep in the same bed. So how do you navigate giving things another chance with someone who has broken your heart? Is it possible to forgive and forget? Can time apart help you come together stronger? Only time (and a shit ton of emotionally vulnerable conversations) can tell! Plus, we talk about why we'd rather be in New Zealand, an unconventional mask wearing policy, and proper maintenance of our "tools of the trade."

Apologies w/ Tien Tran - Ep. 151

We beg your pardon, express our deepest regrets, and hope you can forgive us for this week's episode. Comedian and writer Tien Tran (Work In Progress) thought long an hard about it, and ultimately decided to come forward and dyke out about apologies. Apologies in general and specific ones *cough* ELLEN *cough.* Why do most apologies fall short? Do women apologize too much or are we just displaying empathy?

Shame w/ Lisa Haas - Ep. 150

What does Dame Judy Dench have to do with queer shame? Actor and writer Lisa Haas (Wild Nights with Emily) joins us to get to the bottom of the shame we feel around our queer identities.

PC Culture w/ Judy Gold - Ep. 149

Political correctness can be a great thing when it comes to treating people with respect and dignity, but can it go to far? Comedy legend Judy Gold joins us to talk about how PC Culture has been weaponized against comedians, and why that hurts us all. Judy unleashes her frustration about the current state of the country, and rightfully so. But more importantly, she points out the hypocrisy in the standards at which we hold comedians to, when our leaders do far worse with little to no consequences. We discuss her latest book, Yes, I Can Say That, which dives into the role of comedians as truth tellers, the history of pushing the envelope, and why people get upset when they toe or cross the line. Plus, we talk about IRL interactions with listeners, a new, hot celesbian pairing, and what Monica Lewinsky's choice of car says about her sexuality. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is worried about her sexual inexperience with women.

Non-Binary w/ Gara Lonning - Ep. 148

We're going outside the binary this week to discuss an identity that an increasing number of folks in the LGBTQ+ community are embracing. Comedian and performance artist Gara Lonning (We're Having Gay Sex) joins us to explain to Carolyn's mom (sort of) what it means to be non-binary. We dyke out about common misconceptions and the intersection with trans identity. Also, how do you talk to family about it? What should you do if you accidentally misgender someone? And, why should you never ask an enby friend for a "pass?" Plus, we introduce a political conspiracy theory that is probably, totally true, and Gara reveals their true thoughts on the term "nibling." And while we're able to have an interesting and fun conversation about gender amongst cis and trans-identifying dykes, we expose an area with a much larger gap in common ground: Gen-Z vs Millennial celebrity cultural references. Finally, we end on a listener question about how to handle homophobic comments in the workplace. -Want to hear more from our chat with Gara?

Get your workbooks out and agendas ready because this week, we're dyking out with comedian Cara Connors (Just For Laughs, E!) about her gay immersion! How does one go from being married to a man to indulging in a gay Rumspringa? Pretty seamlessly, actually. Aside from dating as many women as humanly possible, what else do you do when you're first coming out of the closet to familiarize yourself with queer culture? What if you've always been immersed in gayness and just didn't realize it? Before we dive into the topic, we talk about the Annomite trailer, but only because it's our contractual obligation. Also, Carolyn shows off her talent for guessing exactly the kind of car you buy based on your queer vibe. Finally, we end with a listener question about deflecting rude questions from neighbors.

If monogamy isn't for you, you never want to merge bank accounts with someone, but you're got a lot of love to give (and hope to receive it back), then perhaps solo polyamory is right for you! Comedian and writer Ashley Ray has been living that solo polyamory life (in a pandemic no less!) and joins us to correct common misconceptions about her love life. We talk about the funny and tragic red flags she sifts through when dating, how people react to her relationship structure, and why structure and communication are so important. Plus, she talks about her wild zodiac dating experiment which we hope gets made into a TV show. This episode just may leave you polycurious! Plus, Carolyn and Melody talk about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The DNC, The Chicks, and our polar opposite gayest things of the week!

Jen is a writer, actress, and activist whose morning routine involves brewing some tea with her own special touches to complement her mood. We talk about how we were introduced to tea, why it's inherently queer, and the different times and places we've enjoyed it. If your not into tea, you might feel your curiosity brewing as we dyke out about this versatile and comforting beverage. Plus, Jen gives us the scoop on her recent engagement, and tells us what she's been up to in quarantine. But before tea time, we talk about the outdoor comedy crackdown, the attacks on Kamala Harris, Carolyn's big "gayest thing" moment, and the one topic that Carolyn promised to never talk about again. And, we finally reveal the new name for our listeners! -Support the pod and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Healing w/ Chemda - Ep. 144

When life tests us through heartbreak or tragedy, we have to find ways to heal our wounds and move forward. And if anyone knows this, it's Chemda (Keith and The Girl) who dykes out with us about her journey from straight-ish girl, to queer relationship, to heartache - both literal and figurative. Love, loss, and living have helped her find ways to cope with the crazy things life throws her way. We also talk about her relationship with the queer community now that she is divorced from her trans husband. And we answer the age old question of "should you be friends with your ex" once and for all (yeah right). Plus, Carolyn talks about all the lesbian things she did in the woods, and yet Melody still manages to out-gay her. Finally, we give TOO MUCH advice to our listener who sent in a question about her desire to hookup with men. -Support the pod and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.

Labels w/ Becca Blackwell - Ep. 143

This episode is everything and nothing, because that's where we always end up when discussing labels. But to us, it's actually everything because we're dyking out with the hilarious and entertaining Becca Blackwell (High Maintenance on HBO)! We talk about their gender and sexuality journey, as well as their relationship to labels throughout their life. What happens when we hold individual definitions for shared labels? Is it okay to disagree about what they mean? What are the spaces we create for our identities and who can occupy them? Can a trans masc person still be a dyke? (ABSOLUTELY). Plus, we talk about the thing many of you have been asking us to talk about, even though we have previously sworn off talking about it/her/spoiler-alert-it's-Taylor-Swift. And, Melody may have finally gotten Carolyn hooked on Real Housewives drama. Finally, we end with a listener question about dealing with misogynistic gatekeepers. Here is the link to Becca's band, Inner Princess! -Hear more from Becca and other past guests by joining our Patreon community.

Sex Parties w/ Fatimah Asghar - Ep. 142

It's a sex party (chat), and you're invited (to listen)! Poet and filmmaker Fatimah Asghar (Brown Girls, NPR, PBS) joins us to dyke out about sex parties, which inspired her latest short film Got Game. First, apologies for the guest audio. It was the best we could get given the circumstances, but it's such a great conversation that we hope you won't mind. Where were we? Oh yes, sex parties! We talk less about the actual sex (lame) and more about trying to make a connection and what these interactions can tell us about ourselves. Plus, we talk about the importance of consent and the steps we can take to make these spaces as safe as possible. Before we get to our topic, we talk about our gayest thing of the week, and Los Angeles' gayest thing of the year! Finally, we end with a question from a frustrated listener whose girlfriend won't send nudes. -Check out our extra, exclusive content by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Dating w/ Alysia Brown - Ep. 141

A dating episode in the midst of a global pandemic? If anyone can still have game when the world feels upside down, it's comedian Alysia Brown. From back-to-back dates to picking up audience members on Zoom shows and everything in between, Alysia does it all. She tells us about her dating life before COVID, during quarantine, and what she hopes to find for the future. We implore her to share her tips and go-to moves so that our listeners can learn from her experience. Plus, Melody tries to cheat with her pick for Gayest Thing Of The Week while Carolyn is on her way to becoming a Bernie Sanders meme. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is questioning her sexuality, but afraid of leading on another woman in case it turns out she isn't queer after all. -Want to hear more from Alysia?

Lilith Fair w/ Thao Nguyen - Ep. 140

Want an episode that truly lives up to the podcast's name? Because we're dyking out with singer-songwriter Thao Nguyen (Thao & The Get Down Stay Down) about Lilith Fair, and that might be as gay as it gets! But first, Carolyn and Melody mourn the loss of Naya Rivera and talk about what her performance on Glee meant to them. And Melody lets us all know what a Byke is, thanks to a wonderful listener. Then we get to the good stuff. Thao opens up about how her latest album Temple coincides with both her marriage and coming out publicly. This naturally leads into a nostalgia and joke-filled conversation about Lilith Fair - the famed women's music festival that thrived from 1997-1999, and failed in its 2010 revival. We also get the scoop on how her brilliant Zoom music video for Phenom came together in quarantine. Finally, we end with a listener question about being queer in high school in conservative areas. -Want to hear more from Thao?

Equity w/ Rachael Rapinoe - Ep. 139

Let's level the playing field by striving for equity both on and off the field (or court, or rink, or office flooring, etc). Rachael Rapinoe joins us this week to talk about how she's working to create equity in the CBD/Cannabis industry. Before she co-founded her company Mendi, she was a professional soccer player who was all too familiar with the disparity in income and playing conditions between men and women. And as you can imagine, the gap can be even bigger for the LGBTQ community and POC. We dyke out about how her background as an athlete informs her decision-making as a business owner in a fairly young industry, and the different ways her sister Megan uses her own platform to fight for equity. But first, it's TikTok O'Clock at the start of the episode. Carolyn and Melody age themselves by talking about their favorite social media fascination. Plus, Melody can't stop thinking about last week's gayest thing. Finally, we end with a listener question about Harry Potter fandom in light of JK Rowling's transphobia which leads to a longer discussion. -Want to hear more about Rachael's opinions on queer culture and where to meet women in Portland?

Keeping It Real w/ Erika Owens - Ep. 138

We're dyking out across the world with photographer Erika Owens, who many of you know from the latest season of TLC's 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days. Erika stands out on the show for quite a few reasons. She's part of the first queer pairing on the show, she's super fun and likable, and she has bright, bold, head-turning style. We talked about what it was like coming out on TV and having her relationship drama play out in such a public manner. She also dykes out about what it's like to be queer in a small town, and what inspires her work and style. But before getting into the interview, Carolyn and Melody recap their Priding Out show and give an update on some dramatic developments that unfolded during the show. Plus, we reveal (or should we say 'release') our gayest thing of the week. Finally, w end on a listener question about finding other queer women in the midwest. -Check out our extra, exclusive content by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Self Love w/ Jerrell Tate - Ep. 137

We could all use a little more self love, especially this pride month. That's why we're dyking out with the very funny and wonderful Jerrell Tate from the MinoriTEA Report podcast. Jerrell, like many in our community, had a long road to self-acceptance and appreciating what makes him different. We talk about how hard it can be to treat ourselves with the kindness that we more easily show to others. And we manage to age ourselves by sharing our personal methods of showing ourselves love and kindness. Plus, our Gayest Thing Of The Week has now officially become a competition with a prize of sorts! Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is afraid that her sexuality will cause her to lose her parent's support and derail her dream of becoming a Rockette. -GET TICKETS to our virtual pride show that's happening this Thursday, June 25 at 8pm EST. -Check out extra, exclusive content by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Loud & Proud w/ Molly Kearney - Ep. 136

We're in the thick of Pride month and cooked up this TREAT of an episode with the super funny and wonderful Molly Kearney (Comedy Central). Molly lives their life loud and proud, and they make it seem so fun and effortless. What is this beautiful butch dyke's origin story? What gay things is this double-cannon wielding comedian up to? How did they survive being the meat in a triple bunk bed sandwich? Where do they buy their suits? This episode delivers the laughs we all could use right now. Plus, Melody gives a mini history lesson on the infamous Riis beach, and Carolyn goes to Twitter jail for the first time ever. Finally, we end with a listener question about what to do when you and your fiancée don't see eye-to-eye about having children. -This episode is sponsored EveryPlate.

Bad Lesbian w/ Lauren Flans - Ep. 135

Actor/Writer/Podcaster and self-proclaimed bad lesbian Lauren Flans (Coming Out Pod, Wild 'n Out) joins us to talk about all the ways in which we feel like we're failing our identity. Astrology? Bah humbug. Cats? Allergic. Friends? Mostly cishet dudes. But are these really pillars of lesbianism that we need to shame ourselves for not meeting, or are they dated generalizations that no longer apply? Plus, Carolyn and Melody dyke out about our duty to do all we can for racial justice at this pivotal moment, and as long as those injustices exist. -This episode is sponsored by Out & About CBD.

Fluidity w/ Mae Martin - Ep. 134

Pride month is here! We wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for the brave Black and Brown trans women who rioted against police brutality. That brutality maybe have eased for the queer community (it's definitely still there), but as many of you know, it never let up for the Black communities in our country. There's no better way to celebrate pride than by participating in the fight for justice. There are many ways to get involved, and there is no excuse for sitting silent on the sidelines. Let's work together and make real, lasting change. #BlackLivesMatter Comedian/Writer/Actor and all-around queer darling Mae Martin joins us to dyke out about fluidity this week. You all know Mae from their show Feel Good (stream it on Netflix, Channel 4) and hilarious comedy. They often talk about gender and sexuality on stage, so we loved having the chance to dive in deeper into that conversation. We talk about the value of labels and how things are changing over time. Please stream Feel Good and check out Mae's book Can Everyone Please Calm Down. -This episode is sponsored by Out & About CBD. Enter code DO25 for 25% off your purchase!

Persianality w/ Desiree Akhavan - Ep. 133

We're not Dyking Out with any ol' bisexual this week. We've got THE Bisexual, Desiree Akhavan! After hyping her work for years (Appropriate Behavior, The Miseducation of Cameron Post), we finally sit down and talk about her life as a Persian, queer filmmaker quarantined in Brooklyn. While Carolyn finds Desiree's work super relatable, Melody finds her whole life to be super relatable -perhaps TOO relatable. They talk about their experiences coming out while Persian and how they relate to their culture. We also talk about The Bisexual (stream it on Hulu) and the challenges queer shows and films face in attracting mainstream audiences. Before we get into all things Persianality, Melody and Carolyn introduce a new weekly segment and talk about cake. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who hasn't had sex with her partner in over a year. -For 50% off your first Care/of order, go to TakeCareOf.com and enter the code "dykingout50" -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

She-Ra w/ ND Stevenson - Ep. 132

Note; This interview was recorded and released pre ND's transitions which is why you'll hear a different name and pronouns used in the episode. Whether or not you've seen Netflix's She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, you'll want to hear from the person who made one of the queerest shows on TV. The extraordinarily talented ND Stevenson joins us to dyke out about creating and wrapping up a show that's full of heart, magic, and SO MUCH GAY. ND reimagined the 1980s cartoon to reflect a more inclusive world, and this final season is the best and queerest yet. We talked about his conservative upbringing and coming to terms with his sexuality, as well as how those experiences influence his work. Plus, Melody and Carolyn dish on their quarantine habits and the lesbians they're watching on Instagram. Finally, we end with a listener question from a 19-year-old about lesbian bed death. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Electing Women w/ Jess McIntosh - Ep. 127

We have more women in the current congress than ever before, but they still only make up 23.7%. Political commentator and strategist Jess McIntosh (SiriusXM Progress) joins us in these extraordinary times to dyke out about the challenges women politicians face in getting elected, and why it's important to have them in office. How did we go from such a diverse field of democratic candidates for president, including six women, to ending up with just another old white guy? (Note: We recorded the interview portion of this episode a few days before Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race.) Plus, Carolyn and Melody discuss how their lives as New York City comedians has drastically changed. Should they adapt to this new normal, or ride it out in hopes that things will go back to how they were - minus the handshakes. Finally, we end on a question from a listener who is struggling with knowing whether she is asexual or just hasn't met the right person. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

We're Dyking Out with Cameron Esposito (Brooklyn 99, Queery, Take My Wife) about her new memoir Save Yourself and what it was like to be a little gay kid. We discuss the days when we were gay but didn't yet know it, and whether it was a decade ago or days ago, maybe you can relate! Were you the one in your friend group who played with gender norms on Halloween? Did you always feel extra different but couldn't quite put your finger on it? Did you have a crush on Claire Danes? Do you still have a crush on Claire Danes??? We also talk about how the global pandemic has hit too close to home and turned all of our plans upside down. We had a blast chatting with Cameron from afar, and if you want a dose of laughter and relatable stories, be sure to pickup her memoir Save Yourself or listen to the audiobook! -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Feel Good w/ Ally Pankiw - Ep. 125

If you're wondering what queer content to stream during your queerantine, look no further than the new dramedy Feel Good (out on Netflix in the US and Channel 4 in the UK). We dyked out with director Ally Pankiw about the making of the show and why it's so different than other queer narratives. Having immediately binged the first season, Melody and Carolyn were ready with all the questions about shooting strap-on sex, working with Lisa Kudrow, and whether or not there will be a second season. Are you team George? Team Lava? We hope you all take some time to watch this nuanced look into the fictionalized life of comedian Mae Martin as she navigates gender, sexuality, and new relationships as a recovering addict. Plus, Carolyn talks about getting the 'rona as Melody tries to distract herself with wild animal murder mystery shows that end up hitting a little too close to her life. We end with a fun question from a listener about throwing a cup-size-reveal party. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Work-life Balance w/ LaQuet Sharnell Pringle - Ep. 124

What a time to be re-thinking our work-life balance when many of us are out of work or over-worked due to the global pandemic! Broadway performer LaQuet Sharnell Pringle had made some huge adjustments to figure out life as a new mom who had been booked in a new Broadway musical, just for all of that to be turned on its head this past week. But not even a remote broadcast could keep LaQuet's bubbly and bright personality from shining through on this episode. We talk all about coping and adjusting to changes, burnout, and the pressure to be productive, even at a time when the world is telling us to retreat and relax. We can't wait for life to get back to normal so we can see her back in action in the new musical Mrs. Doubtfire. Melody and Carolyn also chat about their quarantine snacking and the internet ganging up on Ellen. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Lesbian Stereotypes w/ Sarah Hallonquist - Ep. 123

Gather your adopted cats, gas up the U-Haul, head over to your best friend's house (who is also your ex), and stay in for the night while listening to this episode about Lesbian Stereotypes! We're joined by the awesome Sarah Hallonquist, an organizer and activist for NYC Dyke Bar Takeover who is well versed in dyke spaces and the reality of what it means to be a dyke. What stereotypes still ring true? Which are the most harmful to the community? Which make us want to scream "mind your heterosexual business!" We also discuss how coronavirus is changing our lives (everything is cancelled), and how not to be an asshole during a pandemic. Plus, Melody roasts Carolyn for her possible hormone-induced weirdness. Finally, we end with a question about how to support a partner with kids during complicated situations. We're so sad to miss seeing you Susans up in Alaska and out on the West Coast, but we'll do our best to reschedule when things (hopefully) return to normal. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Female Gaze w/ Valerie Complex - Ep. 122

We are THRILLED to be joined by the astute and prolific Valerie Complex to talk about all things Portrait of a Lady On -- Er...Female Gaze. We definitely do not spend half of this episode talking about how much we love a certain sapphic film and instead talk about why it makes a huge difference to treat women as subjects, not objects, on screen. Valerie is a film critic and freelance writer, and also a member of Portrait nation. Oh no, we did it again. We swear that's not all we talk about. There's also much discussion about negative experiences we've had in France, like when Valerie went to Cannes and saw - you guessed it - Portrait of a Lady On Fire. After nerding out about or favorite femme-heavy flicks, we answer an interesting question from a listener who is hung up on a past fling! -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Compulsory Heterosexuality w/ Rachel McCartney - Ep. 121

Comedian Rachel McCartney joins us talk about the theory that the only normal sexual relationships in society are between men and women, also known as compulsory heterosexuality. We definitely had to go to Wikipedia to prepare! Have you ever tried to fight your feelings and sexual identity to see if you could make heterosexuality work? It's a funny, messy discussion about the complicated nature of being queer, accepting of your identity, and trying to go against it. We also talk about the masterpiece that is Portrait of a Lady on Fire and a VERY bad Susan at Melody's Stonewall co-hosting debut. Plus, we talk about language policing and cancel culture within the queer community. We end with a question from a very special Susan about getting over her first big heartbreak. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya.

Doulas w/ Solange Azor - Ep. 120

On this episode, we do our doula due diligence by dyking out with the lovely Solange Azor! On top of being a funny comedian and writer, Solange is a full-service doula who helps women through pregnancy, giving birth, abortion, and postpartum needs. And wouldn't you know it, the world of doulas is extraordinarily queer. Carolyn also shares more about her and her wife's process for starting a family, while Melody explains what a period coach is. This episode is so educational, we're surprised it's not on PBS! Well, maybe because we also talk about pillows with vibrators, our hatred of Oligarchs, and celebrity gossip. Plus, we end with a question from a listener who is trying not to let her past drama get in the way of her future. -Get extra episodes by joining our Patreon community or becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -We've got new MERCH. -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Trauma w/ Samantha Sidley – Ep. 119

Big episode alert! We’re dyking out with the VERY talented Samantha Sidley about trauma (trigger warning for sexual assault, car accidents, and eating disorders). Samantha is an incredible jazz singer and interpreter whose album Interior Person is out now. We talk all about the lasting impact that trauma has on our lives and different strategies for coping with it. This is a very special and important episode for many reasons. Samantha is an absolute joy and we really hope you check out her music and see her perform live if you can. Also, it’s our first official episode to launch the next phase of Dyking Out. That’s right, our co-host reveals herself, and we are so excited for the future of this podcast and its community.

Internalized Homophobia w/ Rita Brent – Ep. 118

Comedian Rita Brent joins us to talk about the trifecta of factors that fed her internalized homophobia. Even the most out and proud of us have face some form of this harmful feeling that can make us act against our own interests or even hurt those around us. Rita talks about how growing up in Mississippi, in the church, and enlisting in the military all shaped her views of her queer identity. We’ve also got Melody Kamali in the co-host seat this week to give Rita tips on her recent move to New York and how to connect with Connecticut audiences. Plus, we end with a listener question from South Africa! -Come to the next Dyking Out at Stonewall comedy show in NYC.

Butch w/ Kelli Dunham – Ep. 117

Finally, a whole episode dedicated to that butch life. Well, sort of. We couldn’t help but grill special guest, comedian/author/performer Kelli Dunham, about her past as a nun. And it’s every bit as awesome as Carolyn had hoped. Courtney Rada once again steps into the co-host seat as we talk about life as a queer butch. What is it like to have to explain and defend how you present to heteros? Which stereotypes ring the most true? Why are people such assholes about bathrooms? Plus, we answer a question from a recently-married Susan about – dun dun dun – lesbian bed death.

Femme 4 Femme w/ Ali Clayton – Ep. 116

Three femmes sit down for a podcast recording and hilarity ensues! Comedian Ali Clayton (Vice) came to talk about her experiences dating people across the gender spectrum, including her current relationship with a femme woman who ALSO JUST HAPPENS to be our guest co-host, Melody Kamali! We dyke out about Ali’s past experiences with beauty pageants, trauma (tw), Native American rehab camp, and back rubs from her cousin. We also learned about Melody’s disdain for sharing, which is ironic because she had to share mic time on this episode. Hey, maybe she’s not so bad at sharing after all! We got so carried away with our conversations about past relationships, picking up women, and whether gender and presentation means everything or nothing, that we don’t even get to talk about Ali’s pet ZEBRAS. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear!

Bisexual & Biracial w/ Julia Shiplett – Ep. 115

Let’s get intersectional with the very funny Julia Shiplett (Comedy Central, The New York Times) and guest co-host/founding father Lorena Russi! We’re dyking out about what’s it like to be both bisexual and biracial, as well as how everyone’s journey to self-discovery is different. But it wouldn’t be an episode of Dyking Out if we didn’t veer off onto topics like dental dams and Alaskan comedy. Especially when Lorena takes the wheel! Plus, we answer a listener question about life as a bottom butch! -Dyke Out with us at Stonewall for our first show of 2020 on January 27. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear!

Dungeons & Dragons w/ Kody Keplinger – Ep. 114

Are you a human in the streets but a non-binary pansexual cleric in the character sheets? Whether you know what this means or want to find out, tune into this very special episode with New York Times best-selling YA author Kody Keplinger (The DUFF) and guest co-host Mindy Raf! Before we talk shop regarding all things table top, we dyke out about body positivity, Little Women, Ellen, and so much more! So what’s it like when two D&D n00bs talk to a seasoned played? It turns out the game is very relatable and VERY queer. It’s a fascinating conversation with one of our most interesting and imaginative guests! And remember, this year, BYOK!!!

Cabarets w/ Eliot Glazer – Ep. 113

We’re kicking off the new year with an episode about some of the queerest entertainment of all! No, not Saoirse Ronan’s lesbian-energy-fueled portrayal of Jo March in Little Women. We’re dyking out about Cabarets with the funny and talented Eliot Glazer (Broad City, You’re Making It Worse podcast) and guest co-host Courtney Rada (Carnivorous on Food Network). Recorded the day after our holigay spectacular at NYC’s Joe’s Pub (the site of so many queertastic cabarets), we talk about the icons who have built their reputations with this medium, and why Cabarets are inherently gay. Plus, we talk about Eliot’s super popular live show, Haunting Renditions. We also talk about Pete Buttigieg, our body temperatures, Howard Stern and Celine Dion. Eventually, we end with a messy question from a listener who is suspicious of her partner’s friend. Strap in and strap on because we hope to make 2020 our dykiest year yet! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Relationship Regrets w/ Glo Butler – Ep. 112

It’s the last episode of the year so why not look back on all of our regrets, or lack there of? Relationships can be so confusing, it’s hard to know what’s worth fighting for or when to let go. Guest co-host Lorena Russia and comedian Glo Butler join the pod to talk about the past, present and future of their respective relationships. May all of your yuletide’s be merry and gay, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 brings for us and our Susans. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Holiday Movies w/ Christin Baker – Ep. 111

The holidays are just around the corner, and what better to get us in the mood than the very first queer lady Christmas rom-com? Director and CEO/Founder of Tello films joins Carolyn and guest co-host Kendall Payne to dyke out about her new movie Season Of Love. We talk a lot about representation and heteronormativity in holiday movies, as well as why we have to create the projects that reflect what we want to see on the screen. Christin takes us behind the scenes to dish about the making of Season Of Love. And Kendall and Carolyn share why they appreciate the film. Before we get into the holigay spirit, we go off on Spotify Wrapped, Celine Dion, and Hillary Clinton’s REVEALING denial. We also share our last hopes and wished for The L Word, as we recorded this episode on premiere day. Finally, we end with a question from a teen Susan! –Last chance to get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Commitment w/ Kate Sisk – Ep. 110

Commitment can look like so many different things. A ring, an adopted cat, a pledge of exclusivity…or maybe it’s a sign you need to run for the exit. Carolyn and guest co-host Alex Song (From our “Hats” episode) are joined by comedian Kate Sisk (UCB, Boston Comedy Festival) to talk about how to navigate commitment when it looks different for you than for the person you’re with. Sure, marriage isn’t for everyone, but how do you know when that’s someone’s firmly-held belief or just an excuse? What informs our desire and ability to commit, and are we always able to spot commitment when it’s happening? Was this episode really just Kate’s way of getting discount therapy? Listen and find out! Plus, we talk about grandmas, tattoos, Mariah Carey, Dolly Parton, and Lena Waithe (though not all under the same umbrella, unfortunately). We end with a listener question about a baby-bi friend who is in a less-than-ideal relationship. –Get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Burlesque w/ Nyx Nocturne – Ep. 109

We’re sending you off into the Thanksgiving holiday with an extra-long revealing episode about the art of Burlesque with “The Babe That Goes Bump In The Night,” AKA Nyx Nocturne! Nyx tells us about their journey of getting into burlesque, how it intersects with their identity, choosing a name and persona, and more! Past guest and current comedian / filmmaker Kendall Payne came on as gust co-host and brings the LOLs. But before we dig into the topic, we dish about the upcoming premier of The L Word: Generation Q. Carolyn pitches an alternate show and questions the choice of characters to bring back. Then we discuss astrology as it relates to The Pattern app, and whether or not we’re all living in a complex simulation. There are so many twists and turns in this episode! Lastly, we cap it off with a listener question about popping the question…to their partner’s father. –Get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Trans-cis Relationships w/ Jeena Bloom – Ep. 108

Big episode alert. Comedian Jeena Bloom (Shweet!

Plus, Melody Kamali, of Masturbation episode fame, fills in as guest co-host this week. We also talk about our pilgrimage to New Jersey to hear Robyn Crawford speak about her new memoir detailing her relationship with Whitney Houston. And…well…it’s not what we expected. And as always, we end with a question from a listener who made non-refundable vacation plans with someone they’re no longer dating. We’re sending out a big virtual hug to all of our Susans this week. Once you listen to the episode, you’ll understand why. -Dyke Out with us at Stonewall for the last time in 2019 on November 25. –Get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Relationship Roles w/ Whitney Chanel Clark – Ep. 107

Comedian Whitney Chanel Clark (Broadway Comedy Club) has a bone to pick about assumed roles in relationships. Like why are more masc-presenting women expected to pay on dates or service selfish pillow princesses? What are the double standards that take place in same-sex relationships, and what can we do to defy stereotypes? We explore all of this and more (strap-ons, domestic abuse, cheating) in this extra candid episode. But first, we try to figure out how to stop the heteros from their destructive and lethal gender reveal parties. Finally, we end with a messy listener question about an inappropriate manager. -Dyke Out with us at Stonewall for the last time in 2019 on November 25. –Get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song by There Is No Mountain?

Androgyny w/ Irene Tu – Ep. 106

We’re blurring the lines of gender expressing and talking all about androgyny with comedian Irene Tu! Named one of the best up-and-coming comedians by Vulture, Irene tells us about her path to her current aesthetic and habit of shopping in the mens section. Plus, we go off on pockets for the second time because we can’t shout enough about how badly we need properly sized pockets to put our lezsentials in (okay, maybe chapstick fits in small spaces, but you get what we mean). We also talk about our latest Stonewall show and both the amazing and not-so-amazing audience etiquette. Then we cover representative Kate Hill’s resignation and the 2020 primary field. Finally, we end with a listener question about significant others and military ambitions! –Get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community of becoming a member on Himalaya. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Cheating w/ Caitlin Reese – Ep. 105

TRIGGER WARNING (see topic for reference). Comedian Caitlin Reese came by to talk about one of the unfortunate realities of being in relationships: cheating! Unfortunately, most of us have experience with this act, whether we were the perp, victim, or the side piece. Or perhaps you have people in your life whose cheating has affected you even though you aren’t romantically involved. We talk all about physical and emotional cheating, why we do it, and how to cope with the aftermath. There was so much to cover here and impossible to tackle it all. Before we re-opened all our relationship wounds, we talked about Halloween and a real-life monster that past guest Amber Rollo unexpectedly encountered and confronted. And as always, we end on a listener question about mental health in relationships. –Get tickets to Dyke The Halls: A Dyking Out Holigay Spectacular at Joe’s Pub, December 16! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Bad Lesbian Movies w/ Kendall Payne – Ep. 104

Pop some popcorn and get ready to binge on things that make us cringe! Comedian and director Kendall Payne (Netflix Is A Joke) dykes out with us about the bad lesbian movies we love to watch, or not watch in Sarah’s case. Whether it’s problematic couplings, overdone tropes, cheesy dialogue, or un-relatable narratives created by the heteros, there are a lot of movies geared toward queer women that miss the mark. Also, we reveal the name we’ll be using to refer to our amazing listeners. And we also come up with a list of things that are inherently queer, starting with murder and ending with Canada. What else made the list? You’ll have to listen to find out! Plus, we answer a listener question about her not-too-alpha girlfriend. -Grab your costume and Dyke Out with us at The Stonewall Inn on October 28! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Weed w/ John-Allison “A.W.” Weiss – Ep. 103

We had a chill time this week with singer-songwriter John-Allison Weiss (who performs as A.W.) talking about a popular herb that we obtained legally and are old enough to smoke/ingest. Eventually the topic kicks in, but we take our time getting there to catch up on Ellen and Madonna. We also shout out a past guest who was in the movie Hustlers, and learn about Sarah’s foray into somewhat relevant queer content. Once the smoke clears, we tackle the topic and share our earliest experiences with marijuana. What’s our relationship with it? Does it play a role in the creative process? What are the draw backs? And please remember A.W.’s wise advise to be responsible and wait until your brain finishes developing. Finally, we roll it all up with our listener question about how to deal with her loneliness. -Grab your costume and Dyke Out with us at The Stonewall Inn on October 28! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Navigating Gender w/ Annick Adelle – Ep. 102

German-born and L.A.-based comedian Annick Adelle joined us to dyke out about Navigating Gender. Annick is exploring the gender spectrum and starting to make decisions about to which extent to transition. We talk about the spectrum of gender and how different everyone’s experience with it is, as well as how that can change over time (or not!). How does dysphoria affect identity and our perceptions of gender? What are some of the things people consider when trying to affirm their appearance with how they feel? Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper Dyking Out episode without a few detours into topics like Judy Garland, Tegan & Sara, the resistance, and motorcycles. Plus, we answer a listener question about confiding in the subject of a past fling. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Top Surgery w/ Jake Noll – Ep. 101

Chicago comedian Jake Noll came by to dyke out about their recent top operation, giving us all the nipple-hardening details (actually, no nipples required!). We talk about what made them want to get it in the first place, the procedure itself, and financial challenges. We also talk about how different their life is now, and how others reacted to it (even though it’s none of their business). This was our first time recording in 20 days, so before we talk about tops, we start at the bottom by chewing out the women who defend terrible men in comedy. Carolyn also issues a couple of important corrections and updates from previous episodes, and we answer a very tricky listener question about being in a relationship with opposing political beliefs. We had such a great time with Jake. Be sure to check out their series, Just Call Me Ripley. (Note: Since recording the episode, Jake has changed their name, which is why you’ll hear a different name used on the audio.) -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Moms w/ Margaret Cho – Ep. 100

Praise be to the Goddess, we’ve made it to episode ONE FREAKING HUNDRED. And to celebrate, we have none other than bisexual dykon (#bivisibilityday) and comedian Margaret Cho in a discussion about Moms and SO much more. Yes, Sarah and Carolyn ended their L.A. trip by dyking out with one of the most influential comedians of our time. Before we get into the topic, we talk about gatekeepers in comedy (the usual suspects) and the past instinct of wanting to blend in to be accepted as a serious comic. Plus, we chat about her time navigating conservative populations while living in Peachtree City, Georgia. The topic of Moms seemed perfect for this episode since Margaret’s own mother makes it into so much of her comedy, Sara’s mom is our biggest fan, and Carolyn’s mom has an artful nude of Patti. We talk about Margaret’s mom’s reaction to her bisexuality, first same-sex partner, and abortions. We end by giving advice to a listener who isn’t quite sure how to come out to her father who, duh, prefers conversations about the weather. Be sure to check out Margaret’s new podcast, The Margaret Cho! A huge thanks to all of our listeners. We love you and are so thankful for the time you spend with us each week.

Parenting w/ Amanda Deibert – Ep. 99

We’ve got 99 episodes and this is one! Carolyn and Sarah made the most of their L.A. adventure by dyking out with TV and comic book writer Amanda Deibert about parenting! You may know Amanda from her wonderful and often uplifting twitter account, which we discuss along with our thoughts on the horror genre and Twister-era Helen Hunt. Why also wonder what the hell happened to Leelee Sobieski (apparently she quit acting to be a visual artist). But then we get to the topic to talk about what it’s like being a parent, and specifically on in a same-sex relationship. How do parents navigate gender and gender stereotypes? Who goest to the father-daughter dance? How much of parenting is the same regardless of your sex or gender? Plus, we end with a question from a baby gay who hates meeting her girlfriend’s exes. –Dyke Out with us at The Stonewall Inn on September 30! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Young Adult w/ Britta Lundin – Ep. 98

Put away the jingle jangle and listen to this all-new episode with special guest Britta Lundin (Riverdale, Ship It). Carolyn and Sarah came all the way to sunny Los Angeles to get the scoop on all things Young Adult. Britta knows the YA world inside out, emphasis on the out. We talk about YA as a genre, how it relates to fan fiction, why it doesn’t get the respect it deserves, and how it’s getting gayer each year. But before we get to the topic, we talk about our time in Los Angeles including aggressive lawn signs and breathing in air you can see. Plus, we stumble upon the best name for a new lesbian bar. We also answer a listener’s question about her role in a friend’s wedding. –Dyke Out with us at The Stonewall Inn on September 30! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Toxic Relationships w/ Aida Osman – Ep. 97

Sometimes on our quest to find “the one” (whatever that means), we find ourselves caught up in relationships that teach us a lot about what we don’t want – or at least what we don’t need. Aida Osman (Wild ‘N Out) came by to talk about her experience with a toxic relationship, and how she found herself excusing toxic behavior from a female partner that she would have never tolerated from a male partner. We discuss how we fall into these relationships, why we don’t realize it when we’re in them, and how to break out of them. We also talk about the VMAs, Billie “Eyelash”, gender reveals, and answer an AMAZINGLY MESSY listener question. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Chosen Family w/ Alicia Goldsmith – Ep. 96

What happens when you’re queer and afro-latinx and growing up in a conservative, religious white family? Unfortunately, it’s what most of us would assume. Comedian and performer Alicia Goldsmith came by to talk to us about her experiences in her adopted family, and why finding a chosen family as an adult was so important to her. But before we dive into the details of her journey, we hit a range of topics. From Sarah officially calling an end to any talk about a pop star who shall no longer be named, to a queer pairing on Bachelor in Paradise, to our feelings about Lola Bunny in Space Jam – this episode has it all! Plus, we end it with a listener question that sort of answers itself? -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Ex-Husbands w/ Tessa Skara – Ep. 95

¡Ay, caramba! Comedian and rock goddess Tessa Skara (High Maintenance) came to dyke out with us about ex-husbands, though admittedly, she has more to say on the topic than we do. Tessa tells us how TV sitcoms shaped her idea of what a husband was supposed to be, and how her queer identity affected the relationship. Her journey to becoming a fabulous NYC divorcée is heartfelt, fascinating, funny, and probably relatable for many of our listeners. We also talk about Broadway’s The Prom, our own proms, holding in emotions, and the toxic manifestations repressed homosexuality. Plus, we share our theories and gripes on the now infamous “Work Wife” piece from The New York Times. And as always, we end with a listener question about the acceptance of being aroflux in the LGBTQ community.

Masturbation w/ Melody Kamali – Ep. 94

Fire up that incognito browser and settle in for this squirtastic episode on masturbation with comedian Melody Kamali! From anecdotes, to survey data, to things we don’t want our moms to hear, we bare it all. Did you know that queer women masturbate more than straight women? Or at least we’re more willing to admit it! Frequency? Toys? Location? We go there. Did Jamie Lee Curtis’s striptease in True Lies make you crave some alone time? We also discuss whether or not Missy Elliott is out and the creepiness of (male) magicians. Plus, we answer a listener questions about dental dams!!! –Dyke Out with us at The Stonewall Inn on August 26, where you can see Melody perform!

Fat and Queer w/ Colette McIntyre – Ep. 93

Colette McIntyre is so much more than fat and queer, and that couldn’t be more evident than on this very funny episode. We had a BLAST bitching about the oppressive summer weather, Lea DeLaria’s Problematic Strap, and Carolyn’s inability to pee outside. Then we dyke out about what it’s like to be fat and queer, and whether or not the LGBTQ+ community is inclusive of different body types. And we tackle questions like why do fat and queer women get automatically labeled as butch? Why aren’t people capable of giving a compliment without bringing body-size into it. Why don’t people just mind their fucking business? And most importantly, which of our listeners is going to fall in love with Colette over Instagram and smooch her IRL??? Lastly, we answer a listener question about her homophobic family. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

OCD w/ Olivia Levine – Ep. 92

Holy heat wave! Is summer almost over? We miss our flannels. Lucky for us, we got to have a cool conversation with the funny and grind-happy Olivia Levine about OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). It’s an anxiety disorder that is widely misunderstood, so Olivia breaks down what it is and how it manifests in her life. We talk about how it has intersected with her sexual identity and affected her relationships, as well as what she does to cope. But first, we talk about one of our favorite topics – Sarah’s lack of queer media consumption, as well as what it was like for Olivia growing up in San Francisco. And, we end by answering a listener question about coming out at work Special shout out to Dyke Soccer! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear!

Stand-up Comedy w/ Ali Kolbert – Ep. 91

We invited the HILARIOUS Ali Kolbert (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) to come and dyke out about stand-up comedy, but it quickly turned into a roast. Carolyn gives a quick recap of her trip to Peru, or at least her understanding of it. Then, Ali calls out Sarah’s most problematic behavior: refusing to watch queer tv. So instead we talk about Big Little Lies, one of our favorite straight-people topics. Eventually we get to talking about being a queer stand-up comic, including performing in queer spaces and talking about our sexuality to straight audiences. We only scratch the surface, but hopefully it’s enough to give you an idea of what it’s like out there for queer women in comedy. Maybe we could have covered more, but Ali and Sarah were having too much fun with the sadder details of Carolyn’s past relationships. -Come see past and future guests tell jokes on July 29 at Stonewall.

Dyke Spaces w/ Alex Koones – Ep. 90

Whether you identify as lesbian, bisexual, queer, or ace, (cue Cheers theme song) sometimes you wanna go where everybody is a dyke. But when lesbian bars are closing down at the pace of Shane’s love life, we need to create new dyke spaces while supporting those that still exist. Alex Koones, the founder of Babetown dinner parties for queer women and trans and non-binary people, joined us to tell us about the dyke spaces she frequents, and the one she created. Why do we seek out these spaces? How have they changed over the years? How do you create dyke spaces in your community? This episode was recorded the Monday after NYC Pride, so Carolyn and Sarah also share how they celebrated, including Sarah’s thoughts on her first Dyke March. We end the episode with a listener’s question about internalized homophobia while trying to date women. -Come see past and future guests tell jokes on July 29 at Stonewall.

Rebounds w/ pronoun (Alyse Vellturo) – Ep. 89

Trying to bounce back from a broken heart can be fun, messy, and everything in between. Alyse Alyse Vellturo, who makes music under the name pronoun, joined us to dyke out about the different ways we try to get over one person by getting under another. Or how sometimes, you don’t need a person at all. We talk about what constitutes a rebound, how to communicate expectations, and when does a rebound stop being a rebound? Also, Sarah gives a very detailed example of a rebound gone bad in a series of hard-to-defend moves on her part. It’s a cautionary tale for our listeners. Before we get to the topic, Carolyn rants about how nobody under 30 seems to care about Madonna, and the dykes discuss how their pride week is going. Be sure to listen to pronoun’s album “i’ll show you stronger” and see when you can catch her on tour opening for Taking Back Sunday. -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Sobriety w/ Be Steadwell – Ep. 88

Pride month is over, but let’s keep the gay going with a new episode! The talented Be Steadwell was in town to play the opening ceremony of world pride but made some time to dyke out about being sober. The queer community experiences addiction and alcoholism at higher rates than cis straight people, so whether you’re sober or not, it’s important to be aware of these struggles. We discuss why people decide to be sober, how it can affect relationships and your social life, the challenges, and the many perks. We also answer a listener question about dating as a newly out gay woman. Once you’re done listening, be sure to check out Be’s latest album, Queer Love Songs, out now! -Get extra episodes by joining out Patreon community. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Coming Out After 30 w/ Liza Treyger – Ep. 87

We did it! We had a great live recording in NYC and got to meet some of our gaymazing listeners (even the straight ones are gaymazing for being there). This episode has it all, including Sarah’s mom (okay, she’s just in the room), past guest Jess Henderson doing standup, and our special guest for the evening, Liza Treyger (The Degenerates on Netflix). We talked about everything from Carolyn’s West coast tour to Big Little Lies to Taylor Swift and more. And what’s a discussion about coming out without a few minutes of discussing The L Word? As much as we try to stay away, we can’t! Even though Liza had previously hooked up with women, it took years before she realized she actually wanted to date them, and once she did, things made so much more sense. We explored the ways in which it might be different from coming out at a younger age, and how it’s changed her perspective. We also answer a listener question who wants to know if her parents know she’s queer based on the car they want to buy her. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Pop Music w/ Sir Babygirl – Ep. 86

Cool episode alert! We’re talking all things queer and pop with your next big crush, the very funny and extremely talented Sir Babygirl! We talk about our experiences with pop music, from being raised on Whitney Houston to shunning the genre during our teen years because of stigmatization. But there’s so much power in pop music, especially for women and queer artists. Sir Babygirl also tells us more about her signature strap, and about the struggles she’s encountered while making her way into the industry. PLUS, she gifts us with an acoustic performance of her cover of Kesha’s “Praying” which she recently recorded for pride, and you can read more about it here. But first, we dyke out about The Perfection on Netflix and sex swings (as we all should be doing this pride month). We also answer a listener’s question about how to talk to others about her polyamory. We hope you love this episode as much as we do, and please check our Sir Babygirl’s album “Crush On Me” which is out now on all the usual suspects. -See us record a live episode for pride in NYC on June 23 at 7pm with special guest Kathy Tu.

Long Distance Relationships w/ Katie-Ellen Humphries – Ep. 85

We’re cool with being in a long-distance relationship with many of our listeners, but for a romantic partner? That’s up for debate. And debate we do on this episode with comedian Katie-Ellen Humphries (CBC)! Katie loves LDR’s, but Carolyn’s past experience makes her wary, while Sarah wants…a boyfriend on the moon? What are the perks of not living in the same city as your partner? Are LDR’s better or worse than any other kind of relationship? What’s the ideal distance to have with a partner? Before we get to our topic, we dyke out about sex benches, Madonna and Vancouver Island (unfortunately those conversations are unrelated). And we finish with a question from a listener who is unsure about coming out to her very traditional mother.

The Lesbian Label w/ Courtney Rada – Ep. 84

Courtney Rada (Food Network) joins us for a wild episode about artful nudes and so much more! This episode has everything, from Alanis Morissette covers, to AMAZING band name pitches, to Anne Lister…oh, and eventually we make it to the topic. “Here’s my lesbian daughter” or “This is the lesbian I’ve been telling you about!” are things that have been said about us over the years, and we attempt to figure out why that is. Or how about cis het men who act like it’s totally cool that they’re buddies with you because you’re a lez? When does the lesbian label help and when does it hurt us? Finally, we wrap it up with a listener question from Paraguay. We hope you have as much fun listening to this episode as we had recording it! -See us record a live episode for pride in NYC on June 23 at 7pm.

Gay In High School w/ Sabrina Wu – Ep. 83

Comedian Sabrina Wu (Harvard Lampoon) joins us and braves all of our dated television and movie references to talk about what it was like being gay in high school. We may or may not have gotten a little off topic at times, but Sabrina was kind enough to share her experiences that made Sarah and Carolyn RELIEVED that they went to high school in the early aughts. Okay, maybe it’s just the idea of a prom-posal that has them feeling nostalgic for the good ol’ days of locker notes or having friends ask for you. Anyway, a lot has changed between then and now, but there are definitely things that remain the same for us queerdos. We also talk about having agency over our bodies, Alyssa Milano’s #sexstrike, Carolyn spreading false gossip, Gentleman Jack and more! Plus, we answer a listener question about work place harassment. -See us record a live episode for pride in NYC on June 23 at 7pm.

Biphobia w/ Rosa Escandón – Ep. 82

This episode is not camp, but that won’t stop us from kicking things off by talking about New York’s gayest night that is consistently ruined by the straights: The MET Gala. We also talk about some hot (and stale) celesbian gossip, and solve the mystery of Sarah’s Palm Springs lewk. Was it just some vacation experimentation or is Sarah getting ready to be Kyrsten Sinema’s Arizona-based house wife? But best of all, the hilarious Rosa Escandón joins for this extra long episode to discuss all of this and more! Our topic this week focuses on biphobia from within the LGBTQ+ community and the heteros looking in. Biphobia and bierasure is an ongoing problem, and the ladies examine the possible sources behind it while doing some serious navel-gazing. Rosa has a particularly interesting perspective on the topic because not only is she bisexual, but she was raised in the super queer Bay Area by her lesbian moms. It’s an interesting discussion, and one that reminds us all to examine our biases and keep doing better to make everyone feel welcome and safe in the community. -Come to Dyking Out at Stonewall in NYC on Monday, May 27 Tickets here! -See us record a live episode for pride in NYC on June 23 at 7pm.

Navigating Your Twenties w/ Lily Richards – Ep. 81

Most teens can’t wait until they are in their twenties. Most people in their thirties are thankful their twenties are behind them, regardless of how amazing or tumultuous those years were. Lily Richards, creator and star of the web series Twenty (and 24-year-old), keeps us in-check as we talk about the many changes that happen in this pivotal decade. From starting jobs, to moving to new cities, to new relationships and more, it’s a time to figure out how to be an adult while holding onto your partying days (and liver). For some, it’s a time to settle down. For others, it’s a time to reinvent and experiment. It’s a different experience for each person, but a transformative time for everyone. We also talk about some of the differences between queer in your early 20s and your early 30s (and no, we don’t just mean getting a couple of gay marriages under your belt like Carolyn). This episode is sponsored by Craigslist.org and Divorce.com. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by joining our Patreon community, where you can get some sapphic swag and get in the fast lane with your questions for the pod. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Celesbians w/ Kelsey Bailey – Ep. 80

When it comes to famous lesbians, there are the ones we see in theaters and on red carpets, but the women who were on that realty TV show we watched 9 years ago can be just as popular. Kelsey Bailey (Upright Citizens Brigade, Here & Queer) joins us post-Clexacon to dish about all the Celesbians she’s been following over the years. The phrase “this is so embarrassing” is uttered multiple times, only to realize the same people. What draws us to these strangers? Why do we track all their moves? How many queer Paulson sisters are there? We also play a little game of celebrity connection with Kelsey. Obviously we can only cover so much ground, so please, no emails with “I can’t believe you didn’t mention _____.” Unless they’re super cool or hot and aren’t on our gaydar.

Intersecting Identities w/ Jess Guilbeaux – Ep. 79

Season 3 Episode 5 of Netflix’s Queer Eye brought us the story of Jess Guilbeaux, a strong black lesbian who was out on her own after being outed to her adoptive family. Jess was gracious enough to dyke out with us about how that episode has affected her life, but also about living with intersecting identities. Many of us our judged by our identity, or identities, as many of us have multiple. But sometimes they can be at odds with each other, or we may be at odds with the label itself when we don’t fit perfectly into societies expectation of one category or another. We talk about labels and doing the work for more marginalized identities, and end with a plea to Paramore and a listener question about her family who doesn’t acknowledge her queerness. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Emily Dickinson w/ Madeleine Olnek – ep. 78

The queer erasure of historical figures is an ongoing problem, but some people are working to make the true stories known. Whether you’ve read her work or not, you may have heard that Emily Dickinson was a reclusive spinster who didn’t want to publish her poems while she was alive. Her letters prove otherwise, yet her queer truth is still buried behind bad biographies and literal erasures. Filmmaker Madeleine Olnek came by to dyke out about Emily Dickinson’s lesbian life and promote her film that brings it to life. Out April 12 in select markets, you MUST see Wild Nights With Emily starring Molly Shannon. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll lookup every important woman who has ever been deemed a spinster and take a second look at their life. -Come to Dyking Out at Stonewall in NYC on Monday, April 29.

Gay Aunts w/ Mila Myles – Ep. 77

Okay FINE. We’ll talk about being gay aunts. If you’re realllly going to make us do it and pull out pictures of our nieces and nephews, we guess we’ll oblige. Mila Myles came by to dyke out about her experience being a gay auntie to her sister’s kids, and why somebody should maybe check her when she volunteers to bring them to New York City to look after for multiple weeks! How is being a queer presence in a child’s life different and important? How does it affect that child’s understanding of gender and sexuality? And most importantly, how can you teach them to vogue on your Instagram account??! We also talk about the whiteness of Portland, Oregon and Hulu’s Shrill, which leads us into a discussion about the gentrification of Brooklyn and how white people trigger anxiety. As always, we end with a question from a listener who shows up to DRAG Sarah! Listen, and then tag us in your #gayaunt pics! -Come to Dyking Out at Stonewall in NYC on Monday, April 29.

Growing Up Baptist w/ Chelsea Moore – Ep. 76

Many of us in the LGBTQ+ community grow up feeling like we don’t really belong or fit in. Now multiply that time ten and you might get a sense of what it’s like to be a queer kid growing up in a religious household. Filmmaker Chelsea Moore (Sour Peach Films) came by to dyke out about her Southern Baptist upbringing in Tennessee, which included being home schooled. We learn about Chelsea’s early impressions of homosexuality, and how her religion’s teachings conflicted with her own experiences, as well as how it’s shaped the films she makes today. We also get the scoop on what it’s like to work with our one and only #wcw (but maybe we should change it up), Mariska Hargitay, on the set of Law & Order SVU. Finally, we answer a listener’s question about the changing nature of her sexual preferences and her husband’s change of heart on polyamory. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

New York City w/ Faiven Feshazion – Ep. 75

New York City, the place where your dykiest dreams can come true! Carolyn and Sarah are joined by performer and model Faiven Feshazion to talk all about how our 7-ish years in the big gay apple has completely transformed our lives. We talk about how it’s possible to be dating someone in the city and technically be in a long distance relationship, as well as how sky high rents can influence big life decisions. Faiven talks us through her journey from Dunkin Donuts commercial actress, to NBC page, to a co-starring role on The Black List. Carolyn also makes a plea to listeners to help her seal the deal with Rosie O’Donnell, while Sarah makes a great observation about Killing Eve. We also give a listener some advice on how to handle her work crush. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Baby Gay w/ Allison Ponthier – Ep. 74

You just stepped out of the closet. NOW WHAT? Musician and model Allison Ponthier took a break from making TikToks to dyke out with us about what it’s like being a BABY GAY! Allison left her home in Texas and moved to New York City thinking she’d stay in a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend, but after a few Tinder swipes and an L Word binge, she started two-steppin’ out of the closet. We talk about how being a baby gay is like going through a second puberty, and discuss why everything feels so freaking epic. We also talk about the struggle and pressure to figure out your queer aesthetic and what it’s like to make friends once you’re out. But before we get to revisiting our past (Allison’s present), we rip on chatty Uber drivers and ponder the best way to signal to other lesbians in the wild. We also answer a listener question from a married mother who is just now coming to terms with her bisexuality, AKA a later-in-life baby gay. -Check out Allison’s music! -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Opposites Attract w/ Amelia Bane – Ep. 73

In every functioning relationship, there’s a “logistics,” and a “pizzazz.” What the hell does that mean? Well comedian Amelia Bane came by to give us the details of this interpretation of the saying “opposites attract.” How can you tell if your opposite features complement or repel? Does the pizzazz always have to bring the pizzazz? Can you play different roles in different relationships? Why does Carolyn think it’s good to be “opposite in the face?” Before we dissect our past and present relationships, we spin some theories about the couples fighting outside of Cubby Hole and reminisce about performing to little to no audience. We closed out the episode with a question from a listener who is looking to make the leap out of her 9-5 career.  -There are only a few pre-sale tickets left to Dyking Out at Stonewall on March 25! -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Asexuality w/ Janeane Garofalo – Ep. 72

Reality does not bite here at Dyking Out because we are joined by ICON Janeane Garofalo! Yes, we’re talking about Carolyn’s #3 crush, in studio to dyke out about asexuality and so much more. Janeane lets us know why she’s not watching the Oscars, tells us how the TV sausage is made, gives valuable life advice, dishes on past roles…and we are HERE FOR IT. As we get into the topic, she shares that people have always mistaken her for a Jewish lesbian, which she OF COURSE takes as a compliment. And we discuss why asexuality as an identity may be different for everyone because there are no hard an fast rules. Finally, we wrap it all up with a question from a listener who identifies as asexual but doesn’t know how to tell for sure if she’s also queer. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Science w/ Arielle Duhaime-Ross – Ep.71

We might as well call this episode “weird science” with all the crazy coincidences we stumble upon up top. The super knowledgable science, climate and environmental correspondent, Arielle Duhaime-Ross (VICE News Tonight on HBO), joins us to dyke out about the big issues impacting the most vulnerable communities. It’s a fascinating conversation about communities that are rapidly changing because of changes in the environment and policies that are meant to slow those changes. She also shares her journey from hanging out overnight in the cold with salamanders to traveling the world for VICE media, and what it’s like to be a queer, gender non-conforming person in the field. This episode is crazy (the coincidences), interesting, depressing, hopeful, fun, thoughtful – there’s something for everyone! Oh, and just so you know, Arielle’s mom is NOT friends with Gordon Lightfoot. -Come see us live in NYC at Stonewall on February 25! -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Lesbian Sex Scenes w/ Erica Rose – Ep. 70

In this new episode, we’re getting down to business. Lady on lady business. Talented Director/Writer/Producer Erica Rose (Sour Peach Films, Girl Talk) helps break down the do’s and dont’s of a lesbian love scene, as we talk about the good, the bad, and the spit. Which steamy sapphic scenes have you hitting rewind again and again? Which ones feel the least authentic? How many do you think Sarah has even seen??? We tried to cover as much ground as we could, so don’t be upset if we didn’t get to your favorite! Before we dive into our topic, there’s some podcasting foreplay with an Ellen vs. Ellen discussion, a download on Russian Doll, and a recap of the worst part of our first live show at Stonewall. Will we see you at the next one on February 25? Plus, Sarah delivers some tough love in response to this week’s listener question. -Come see us live in NYC at Stonewall on February 25! -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Creative Journeys w/ Alice Kremelberg – Ep. 69

Any of you who watched the last season of Orange Is The New Back should be familiar with this week’s guest, actress Alice Kremelberg! Alice stopped by to talk about the journey of pursuing a creative passion, but we did not make it easy for her. First, she had to put up with Carolyn and Sarah arguing about Game of Thrones YET AGAIN. Then right when we’re getting to the good stuff, we manage to derail things with a spiraling conversation about how we’re all just careening toward a certain death at the hands of our technological overlords. You know, just light-hearted every day stuff queer women think about. As we compare career rejection to dating, Sarah pitches a new game show that we know a few of our listeners would totally be into. And as usual, we end it with a question from a listener whose ex was intimidated by her butch side. -Come see us live in NYC at Stonewall on February 25! -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?

Gay For Pay w/ Taylor Ortega – Ep. 68

Taylor Ortega (Kim Possible) joined us to dyke out about Shay Mitchell, Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz, and all the other actors who play multiple queer roles on screen but identify as straight on the streets. Before we dive into the ladies who keep us asking “but is she???” we talk about Carolyn’s moment in the sapphic sun which of course leads to us discussing The L Word for the 20th time. We also clear the air about a future guest who had some recent controversy in the news and let you know why we won’t be bringing it up next month when she sits down with us (spoiler: it’s not because she’s Carolyn’s number 3 crush). But then we get right down to business, and we #namenames. Why are some actresses casted for queer roles when there are many queer actors who are available for those same parts? Who is convincing and who isn’t? Can queer people play straight characters? We wrap it up with a listener question and embarrassing exchange about TikTok. Be sure to watch Taylor as Shego in the Kim Possible movie when it comes out on The Disney Channel. -Keep the podcast a-lez and gay by donating to our Patreon, where you can get some sapphic swag. -For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Leave Us a Review if you like what you hear! -Like our theme song?
