Episode 2

Coming Out Stories & Strictly Come Dancing

In this week's episode, Sarah and Jess introduce you to the Lipsticks Podcast, your go-to podcast for good, honest, gay chat. 

To kick things off, they will be talking about how they met, the story behind the podcast, how they choose to identify and, of course, telling their own coming out stories and experience of the LGBTQ+ community.

The girls will be discussing a news topic each week and the first on that agenda is Strictly Come Dancing and the history they made when they announced their first same-sex pairing. Yay!

Stick around to the end to find out their favourite made-up gay word of the week. Grab a brew and join us for a good old natter!

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!
