3030 @REVRYTV Review from @kleffnotes

3030 is a Revry Original Series that recently released a second season in April of this year. Inspired by 90’s sitcoms like Living Single and Martin, with elements of Seinfeld like humor this series creates a humorous story focused on two platonic lesbians living together in Las Vegas. The first season, which is already available on Revry, focuses on Zola, Serrita Coleman, moving in with her best friend of 20 years, Tyler, B. Danielle Watkins. In this first season both women were coping with lost loves, but in different ways, and in the new season they are getting into some very hilarious in your face moments.

The Bi Line: ImBIbing in Something New from @kleffnotes

With 2019 starting today I wanted to try and do something new for The Nerdy Girl Express. I have been debating about doing an article series that would focus on LGBTQ+ topics, but hadn’t really had the time to sit down and focus on how to start it. Today seemed like the perfect day. Now in case you didn’t know my name is Katherine and I am an out bi woman. I typically just say bi instead of bisexual, just my personal preference, and I sometimes think up terrible puns involving the word bi. Ages ago I started thinking about the word byline, which is the part of an article that names a writer. Well as someone who is bi it seemed that it could be perfectly altered to use for my own needs.

@ClexaCon London Small Panel YouTube Additions from @kleffnotes

After releasing some of their larger panels, ClexaCon posted a number of videos of their smaller panels from ClexaCon London. I took a bit of time to check out the new additions and wanted to share a bit about them with those who either couldn’t attend the convention or might have missed out on some of these panels. While the larger panels are always great, smaller panels help to focus more on specific issues and populations within the community that don’t always get discussed in the bigger rooms.

Ship It Book Review ( @brittashipsit ) from @kleffnotes

Ship It is a book I have been hearing about for over a year. I know it hasn’t even been out that long, but seriously I know I had heard about it way before it ever released. Britta Lundin, who happens to be connected to one of my current television obsessions on The CW, announced that she would have a book coming out focusing on fandom and fanfiction titled Ship It. I had the chance to briefly chat with her at ClexaCon, but wasn’t luck enough to win a book and when I got back to small town Ohio I could not find a copy of it anywhere. I searched high and low and finally, after a bit of a wait, managed to snag one of the digital copies of it through my public library. Ship It is so much more than I ever imagined and the characters are so much more complex than I ever could have guessed just from the book description. I was completely glued to my screen the entire time I was reading. Continue reading “Ship It Book Review ( @brittashipsit ) from @kleffnotes”

The Summer of Jordi Perez Book Review ( @theames )from @kleffnotes

The weather has gotten a bit chilly where I am and that means it is the perfect time to curl up with a cozy book, especially one set in the far warmer month of Summer in California. I have been trying to get my hands on The Summer of Jordi Perez for months. After seeing a table devoted to it and Ship It, which I also plan to review, at ClexaCon this year I was looking for it everywhere. Finally I managed to track it down through a local library app, Libby. When in doubt library it out I guess! Continue reading “The Summer of Jordi Perez Book Review ( @theames )from @kleffnotes”

LGBTQ+ Holiday Shopping Guide from @kleffnotes

It’s December 1st which means the holiday shopping season is definitely upon us. Now regardless of what you celebrate, if you even celebrate at all, this time of year always feels like it involves gift giving in some capacity. This year I wanted to highlight some LGBTQ+ connected sites that you can find things that are perfect for anyone in your life. These are listed in no particular order, though somehow they are unintentionally in alphabetical order, and I recommend checking out each of the sites, even if you aren’t in a shopping mood right this minute.
