  • Flame On :: Episode 232 :: Now That’s What I Call Gay Life Vol. 6 – Gays of Future Present

    Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.

    With the past behind us, we look to the present to see where representation has come since our early days, but beyond even that, we take a look at the horizon and venture to guess what the future will hold for not only us, but for generations to come! Welcome to the Gays of Future Present!

    After the cliffhanger at the end of our last episode, BeeJay is safely back behind the microphone to bring guide our crew through a new discussion on LGBTQIA+ representation. This time around we take a look at modern day representation in TV, movies, and much more in pop culture. Whether it’s Schitt’s Creek, Stranger Things, and Valkyrie being the MCU’s first LGBTQIA+ super hero or Steven Universe, RuPaul’s DragCon, or Marvel’s Jessica Jones, we are seeing representation on a level that couldn’t have dreamed of twenty years ago. Not content to stop there, we also take a look towards the future and discuss what we want to see in the future so that generations to come will be able to live out and proud!

    Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON! (more…)

  • Flame On :: Episode 231 :: Now That’s What I Call Gay Life Vol. 5: Gays of Future Past

    Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.

    What is the first instance of homosexuality that you can remember from pop culture? Was it something that stuck with you, or was it a fleeting caricature of that was included for laughs? It’s time for Rachel Summers to send us back in time as we discuss the Gays of Future Past!

    Beejay is back behind the host mic to bring you our newest installment in our Now That’s What I Call Gay Life series! This time around, he has dropped the deeply personal and introspective questions and instead wants to find out what was the first LGBT+ representation the panel saw in pop culture. From Liberace and All My Children to Married With Children and The Simpsons, the boys discuss the pop culture influences that shaped their early lives. Did they touch on the representation that you first saw on television, music, or games? Listen in and find out, but be careful because there may be a cliffhanger before reaching the Gays of Future Present…
