The Advocates Podcast: The Importance of Lesbians


Game Changers: Lesbians You Should Know About author Robin Lowey discusses the importance of educating students about lesbians who changed history. 

With the FAIR act, California has made education about the LGBT community mandatory in its schools. On the latest The Advocates podcast, Robin Lowey, author of Game Changers: Lesbians You Should Know About, a book she created to educate young kids about lesbians who helped move the ball forward for LGBT visibility, joins hosts Jessie "Gender" Earl and Tracy E. Gilchrist to discuss the importance of educating young people about the queer community. She also lays out why she thinks that the term "lesbian" shouldn't disappear.

For hot topics, Jessie and Tracy chat about the disappointing response from Arrested Development's male cast members when questioned about verbal abuse and assault allegations againt co-star Jeffrey Tambor. They also tackle the NFL's effective censorship of its players who take the knee. They also gush about Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany when discussing the homework they've assigned one another.
