Kris is the Cassandra of recommendations. How did we not realize this before? She lays down winners, and Tara? She will not budge. Listen to Kris, Tara! Everybody! Unless you can’t. Because, you know, Cassandra. What were we talking about again?
This episode goes some places. For official recommendations Kris brings 2020 film Joe Bell to the table. It’s an important but difficult movie that deals with the painful reality that many queer youth go through every day. To balance it out, Tara brings the exact opposite with About That Kiss by Harper Bliss.
Content warning for bullying, harassment and queer youth suicide in the discussion of Joe Bell 32:08 – 41:33.
If you’re a parent or family member of a queer kiddo and are looking for support, contact your local chapter of PFLAG. And if you are a young, queer person in crisis, feeling suicidal, or in need of a safe and judgment-free place to talk (or know one such person), reach out to The Trevor Project.
If you enjoy this episode, please consider buying Kris & Tara a Ko-fi!
