WAIT, ROSE! A podcast can’t be your BEST FRIEND!
Dear Throwing Shade,I have OCD. Knowing this very well, I let very few things touch my heart. I found out about Erin and Throwing Shade through Getting Curious with Jonathan van Ness, and MY. LIFE. HAS. CHANGED. Not only my apartment is invariably filled with ROARING laughter every Thursday morning, but also, thanks to the scrupulous research and amazing thoughtfulness that goes into the discussion of urgent women’s and LGBTQ+ issues, I feel I am becoming a feminastier (i.e. better) person. (I also make sure I share whatever snippet of information I can glean from the podcast with my family and friends whenever.)I am a Turkish gay man, who started listening to your podcast in Beirut, and in the past year continued to do so in Ankara and Maastricht, where it became a friend I can always trust on having a good time with, as all of my friends were far away. You made crises bearable with chuckles and hope for the fixability of this wretched world. And now I live in LA! I was so excited to move to your city to begin my PhD and whenever I leave my neighborhood, I still have butterflies in my stomach I might bump into you (if I am lucky, during grocery shopping!) I can’t wait for your next live show to see you in flesh, let it ALL out and feel like a complete person, but in the meanwhile, please bear with me as I fangirl with an exorbitant number of likes and comments on your social media accounts. I love you guys to the Mondeaux Condo Planet and back 🌹🧿🌹🧿🌹
