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). Plus, Carolyn and Melody blow off some steam after online attacks from Gen Z queers. And finally, we end with a question that digs up our past rebound trauma. Sending extra love this week to our Texan U-Haulers!
