Baby Queers (QR 029)

February 15, 2022

What stage of the pandemic are you in? We’re not talking waves here — we’re talking clothes. No pants? That’s a given, but what else? When’s the last time you wore a shirt? A proper, honest-to-goodness adult shirt? It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Post-pandemic catch-up, Tara and Kris talk about what’s good and continue to plan their post-covid Kansas City tour. Kris also comes out as a Toon Blaster and she doesn’t care who knows it! What’s a Toon Blaster? We have some ideas.

If you enjoy this episode, please consider buying Kris & Tara a Ko-fi!

Official Recommendations

This week, Kris recommends Jay’s Gay Agenda by Jason June. It’s a debut novel that introduces us to a gay teenager who can’t exactly join in with the straight kids in his life about their romantic lives, so instead plans out all the firsts that await him once he graduates. As Kris says, it’s a book for all queers about the excitement and joy of coming out and into a wider community.

Tara recommends The Demon Equilibrium by Cathy Pegau. Yes, this book has demons and the lesbians who hunt them. But at its heart, it’s the story of Grace and Maggie, two women who — when together — can harness magical power to fight evil. The story is told in two timelines: the first when Grace and Maggie meet, learn to use their shared power and fall in love, and the second when they reunite after a forced separation and Maggie can’t remember who Grace is. While demon hordes abound, Grace waits to see if her old love will fall in love all over again.
