By Nax and Jules
Join Nax and Jules as they react to media with queer subtext, queer cult classics, and other aspects of the “queer canon”. We discuss movies, television, and music, as well as larger trends in the entertainment industry. Join us as we discuss things that are considered biting the hand that feeds you, instead we ask, “what happens when we do?”
