In this festive edition of The Lipsticks Podcast, Sarah and Jess are on a mission to make the Yuletide gay!
We chat about the new film, the Happiest Season, a festive romcom which features a lesbian couple as the main characters. We talk about our expectations of the film vs what we actually thought after watching.
Following complaints against James Corden’s performance in the Netflix film, The Prom, the topic up for debate this week is all about gay representation on screen. We give our thoughts on stereotyping and ask the question, “Should straight actors play gay characters?”
Plus we have a few nice words to dish out during our weekly Spotlight, where we give a shoutout to someone doing awesome things for the LGBTQ+ community - from artists and charities, to businesses and bloggers.
We're wishing you all a wonderful Christmas. Stay safe, be kind, and thank you for listening x
Spoiler alert! This podcast may contact traces of giggling, northern accents, sarcasm and gay references.
