Episode 13

Girl Crushes Versus Real Crushes

In this episode of The Lipsticks Podcast, we talk about different types of attraction and the different between “girl crushes” and being attracted to other women. You know, in a gay way!

We get super excited about the upcoming Marvel release which features the first openly gay titular character in a superhero movie! It’s about time ;)

This weeks Spotlight feature gives a special shout out to a wonderful charity based in Sheffield which supports LGBTQ+ youth and whose core function is to transform the lives of LGBTQ+ young people and young people affected by HIV.

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

Jess Peace

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!
