Episode 34: Queers in the Civil Rights Movement
For today’s episode, Leigh is joined by return guest host, Aubree Calvin, to commemorate Black History Month by telling the stories of some folks who made contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s whose queerness has been overlooked or erased, and the ways in which the tremendous work done by Black activists was absolutely essential to the evolution of LGBTQ rights actions. Listen to hear about Freedom Rides organizer Rodney Powell’s epic takedown of Rev. Rick Warren, Ernestine Eckstein’s directions for the homophile movement, and Lorraine Hansberry’s thoughts on Eartha Kitt’s legs.

8: Tipping Culture, Do We Like The New Vaccine?, Voter Suppression, Pandering At The Golden Globes
This week we discovered each of us has a catch-phrase?! Listen to find out what they are! Is tipping culture out of control? How do we handle situations where it's unclear whether tipping is appropriate? Andrew shares a recent story. With Johnson & Johnson's vaccine receiving emergency FDA approval, conversations abound about vaccine preferences. Do we have one? Andrew considers a pilgrimage to Gila County, Arizona for a shot at the vaccine. San Diego Comic Con has already canceled its in-person July convention, but will host an in-person event in November. Will we be over the trauma of mandated isolation by then? Laura issues a Cuomo correction, but Gov. Cuomo is still in some shit. A Georgia Tale: Battleground State, Voter Suppression Fuckery. We detail how Georgia Republicans have been for expanding easy access to voting, until they decided they didn't like the way people were voting. A new Equality Act has passed the U.S. House of Representatives, and would enshrine nondiscrimination practices into law for sexual orientation and gender identity (no one tell #jkr). United States Postal Service vehicles are getting an upgrade, prompting many to wonder: are they derpy or cute? Paramount+ has unveiled its upcoming slate of programs... and they. are. all. revivals. or. spinoffs. Pam reminds us that progress can be frustratingly slow in light of the 2021 Golden Globes. Lady Gaga's dog walker might need a raise after being shot when defending her pups from a dog napper. Do we think the thief knew they were Gaga's dogs? We're all over the board with this week's recommendations: Toaster oven air fryers (Andrew), HBO's 'Allen v Farrow' (Laura), and 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' (Pam). This week's episode is sponsored by ThirdLove (https://www.thirdlove.com/MILLENNIAL for 20% off your first purchase), Rothy's (https://www.rothys.com/mill for your new favorite flats), and Talkspace (https://www.talkspace.com and enter code MILL for $100 off your first month). Support #Millennial by supporting our sponsors. And in this week's installment of After Dark, available on Patreon: Surprise Bitch! victim and epidemiologist Elizabeth graciously answers our most burning questions about the COVID-19 vaccines. Pam wants this group of friends to learn more about each other, and she's ready with questions! What did we imagine being 30+ years old would be like? Could we even picture it? What's our code behind having (or not having) tattoos? ...and more!

SBG 60: Bridgerton with Krü Maekdo
Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with Krü Maekdo (@krumaekdo), founder of the Black Lesbian Archives, to talk about why Bridgerton Should’ve Been Gay. This show gives us all of the elements of what could be an epic lesbian storyline and then does not deliver on it. We all know Eloise is gay. They’re really not even trying to disguise it. Between her relationship with her “best friend” Penelope, her obsession with Lady Whistledown, and her general attitude of indifference towards men, it really couldn’t be any more apparent that Eloise is a whole baby gay. Look, she cuts her own bangs. Need we say more? We talk about “best friend” Penelope and how while she is a bit better at hiding it, she is also very much a lesbian. They even use the popular ‘brother as a stand-in love interest’ trope, but we know better. We also talk about Queen Charlotte and the convenient lack of a King; she’s totally hooking up with Lady Danbury and you can’t tell us otherwise. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida). You can also join us on Facebook.com/lezhangoutpod and follow along on Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).
