#34 Queerness and Unions (What About the Workers?)

Queer? Unionist? Enjoyed the movie Pride? Wondering what the unions have done for you lately, or grumbling about them as you knock off at five for the weekend?

Fighting for workers' right has been a cause for centuries, but where does it stand with the queer women of the here and now?

Listen in to Jill, Moira, Nicky and Nida talking intersections of queerness and unions.

#32 Lip Readings: Popular Cinema and Lesbian Interpretive Strategies (Projecting onto the Screen)

Friday Night Lip Readings returns as Daria, Gem and Yen explore the ideas of Popular Cinema and Lesbian Interpretative Strategies in a so-titled paper by Cheryl Dobinson and Kevin Young.

When lesbians can't see their own kind on the screen, what are we to do? Why, tell ourselves it was there all along, of course. Subtext, the lesbian gaze (gayze?) and strange tangential giggle-fits are the order of the day in this episode.
