#12 Social Media (Three Lipsters made a show about social media. You have to hear what happened next.)

Is it easier or harder to come out when all you need is a status update? 
Is breaking up over instant messaging tacky or just using the tools available?
Do you build your profile as you build your identity?
What's better, a handkerchief code or a hashtag?

This special extended-for-podcast edition of Friday Night Lip Service will look at all of these and more as we shoot the breeze on queer women using social media. You can even use social media right here, right now, to give your opinions on those questions or even ask us some new ones.

We'll also be bringing you an interview with Laura Jackson, author of the one-woman show with the social media theme, Handle It.

#11 Gender Neutrality (Bye-Bye Binary?)

Izzy, Jenni, Kaley and Ollie talk about gender neutrality until they’re neither pink nor blue in the face.

One gender? Two? Many? None? How do we ‘do’ gender? Do we do it, or is it something that’s done to us? The team talk through their own and each other’s experiences and identities.
