Busting Bisexual & Lesbian Myths

In this episode of The Lipsticks Podcast, we’re out to do some myth-busting! We debunk some common myths about bisexuals and lesbians. It gets juicy…

Our news topic up for discussion this week looks at a conversation which took part on Ru Pauls Drag Race UK, in which two of the queens discussed being non-binary. Ginny Lemon and Bimini Bon Boulash, had a heart to heart in one episode and opened up about struggles they had had as non-binary people and being on the drag circuit. The conversation being aired on national television, has inspired many people to come out to their nearest and dearest as non-binary too!

We add another made-up word to our Gay Glossary. This one is all about three being a magic number!

The big gay spotlight this week is hosted by Sarah, who surprises Jess by including a campaign which she has worked on! The Car-ma Sutra is a guide to sex positions which you can enjoy in a car AND these positions are completely inclusive regardless of your gender identity or sexual orientation.

Spoiler alert! This podcast may contact traces of giggling, northern accents, sarcasm and gay references.

Ey up 👋

My name is Jess and I co-host The Lipsticks podcast. Incase you were wondering, I am attracted to men and women. Bi-five, anyone?

I'm a proud Yorkshire lass who loves the countryside and a brew. I'm also fond of books, music, pasta, travelling, whiskey and writing (not necessarily in that order!)

Thanks to my background in Journalism, I'm used to being the one who gets to ask the questions, not answer them! So this should be interesting...

Hello! What do I say about myself? Never know what to write on these things, here goes nothing...

So, my name is Sarah and I am one of the co-hosts of this podcast! I also co host another podcast, called SEO SAS - for anyone who enjoys SEO?

Anyway, I would identify myself as a lesbian and I suppose would say I was late to the 'gay game' - so to speak. I didn't realise I was gay until I was around 23, wasted time at Uni I know!

I enjoy discussing all things LGBTQ+ and just chatting in general to be honest. Apart from that I enjoy all the normal things like coffee, gin, travel, live music, going on walks... sounding like my Tinder profile, so I am gonna stop!
