The Bi Line: Ending Pride with Some Recommendations from @kleffnotes

Pride is coming to an end technically, though really shouldn’t we just be celebrating our identities every month? As someone who has never lived near a place that does a Pride event, the closest was about an hour and a half away and I was only ever able to go one time since I don’t drive, strangely quarantine allowed me to actually participate in one for the first time in ages. Lez Hang Out, one of the podcasts I try to actively listen to every week, hosted the live stream with guests from across the country. While I was not tuned in for the entire stream, what I did see was a delight and I hope that even if we aren’t in quarantine next Pride month that they host this even again.

The Bi Line: Let Me Be Your Batwoman from @kleffnotes

Yes, you read that correctly, I want to be your Batwoman. As many people already know Ruby Rose has left Batwoman and it appearedĀ  as though the plan was to replace Kate Kane/Batwoman. It has been noted that for this casting they do plan to cast someone from within the LGBTQ+ community. While recasting can be an issue for shows, I know I have personally been thrown by recastings, though they were all for shows in reruns. Childhood Katherine was very displeased when Bewitched on Nick at Nite replaced Darren, but that is a story for another day. After initially writing this article, these go up bi-weekly because I couldn’t resist tying the schedule to the title of the article series, it has been announced that Batwoman will no longer be Kate Kane, but more on that later.

Band Ladies Series Review from @kleffnotes

Band Ladies is a series that you can find on HighballTV that focuses on a group of women who were part of a book club that turned into something completely different. Now yes, that is a little vague, but if you checked out my interview with two of the writers/creators/stars yesterdayyou’d have a better idea of how this comedy takes the idea of getting away from your family for a bit and making it into something completely revitalizing for the spirit. What we see is a journey to self discovery and understanding where these women are able to find themselves again after feeling defined by their roles in life, whether it be mother, girlfriend, or lawyer.

The Bi Line: Butch Pals, Avocado Toast, and Life from @kleffnotes

Conventions might not be happening in physical spaces this year, but many are either transition to or being created in online spaces. One such convention that made a bit of a shift was ClexaCon. While the convention itself did not fully take place, they did shift their Film Festival and some related panels to online. I admittedly had hoped to enjoy more of these offerings, but my life was a bit hectic right at the same time that the convention was taking place.

Interview with Wendy Jo Carlton from @kleffnotes

I had the chance to ask some questions of award winning filmmaker Wendy Jo Carlton, primarily about her recent film Good Kisser. We also chatted a bit about some of her other projects, including one that you can find on Netflix. Thank you to Wendy Jo Carlton for taking the time to answer all of my questions.

The Bi Line: Everything is Queer in Quarantine from @kleffnotes

At this point in quarantine everything I watch just ultimately becomes queer. Oh I know technically many of the shows I have watched are not actually queer, but I am making them what I want. This also might be because I may be indulging periodically in adult beverages and according to my wife when I drunk I just start insisting that any pairing that might be queer is queer. I may have yelled “just kiss already” at a number of people while we have been periodically delving deeply into Netflix. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Everything is Queer in Quarantine from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: Reality Bi-tes from @kleffnotes

We have reached the point in quarantine in the Kleffner household where we just want to watch what many might call trashy tv. I am not adverse to reality tv shows, but previously have normally limited myself to watching ones that focused on cooking and for a while I was very dedicated to America’s Next Top Model reruns. Krista though was very involved with watching The Bachelor Nation collection of television series and slowly led me down the path of dating shows. I did watch a hunk of the most recent season of Bachelor in Paradise, but while I said I would watch the new Bachelor we both decided we weren’t that into Pilot Pete’s season. Now in true random tv bingeing fashion we took to Netflix and fell very far down a rabbit hole of watch next suggestions. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Reality Bi-tes from @kleffnotes”
