The Bi Line: Little Voice and a Little Bit of Queer Romance from @kleffnotes

I should begin this article by saying that my sister has been very kindly letting Krista and I watch a couple shows on her Apple+ account. Much like everyone in the world, at least I think this is a very standard practice, my family all shares passwords to different services so that everyone can try and watch the shows they want. Krista is a huge fan of Sara Bareilles and she really wanted to watch her new show, Little Voice. The show follows Bess, a singer-songwriter, who is trying to find a place for herself in the music industry. When the series starts she is struggling with being able to perform after being heckled off of a stage while playing one of her original songs. While Bess is the lead she isn’t going to be the focus of this article. Instead I want to talk about Prisha, Shalini Bathina, her best friend and roommate.

The Bi Line: Slo Pitch Review from @kleffnotes

After much anticipation and what felt like an eternity of waiting, Slo Pitch finally came out on KindaTV. Now I do know some people could watch the series before it released on this YouTube channel, but because I live in the United States I had to wait. For those who haven’t heard of this series it is a queer comedy focused on a softball team. The series was created by J Stevens, Gwenlyn Cumyn, and Karen Knox, the former two I had the pleasure of interviewing for another series they were a part of Barbelle.

New Podcasts on My Listen List from @kleffnotes

I periodically try and find new podcasts to mix up what I’m listening too. While yes I love my standards, Lez Hang Out and Coming Out Pod are two in particular, but sometimes you need to search for something that will expand your listening horizons. At some point or another I had seen the three podcasts pictured above somewhere on social media and decided to give them a listen. Continue reading “New Podcasts on My Listen List from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: Boxing Up Bits of Yourself from @kleffnotes

A lot of changes are happening for people right now and while this is not a monumental change, my life is changing in a very specific way right now. Krista, my wife if you haven’t read any of my previous articles, and I are currently in the process of trying to move. During the initial closure periods related to Covid there were certain employment changes and now officially Krista has a new job and I am a permanent remote worker for my job. Based on the location of the new job, we are in the midst of moving. We have a house that we are working on paperwork for so that hopefully we can move in by at least the end of the month. While we’ve been working on the moving process we have also had to put our home on the market, which has led to some unexpected realizations about the area where we live now and how we have to navigate it in some situations.

The Bi Line: Lawyers and Love Interests from @kleffnotes

In the past few weeks Krista and I have been watching a lot of shows and movies that have included lawyers, primarily District Attorneys and prosecutors. During this binge one of the shows we wound up watching was a two season show with a total of 20 episodes called For the People. This was my favorite of the shows we chose to watch and it surprised me in season one with a character being presented as queer.

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.
