bury your gays: the podcast

On this week’s episode we jump into It: Chapter Two (2019) and continue to talk all things Reddie. We delve into Richie’s identity as a queer character, whether this identity makes IT less queerbait-y, and yes, the unfortunate bury your gays trope. And on a lighter note, the fix-it fanfic trope.

What is bury your gays: the podcast?

Join Saer — a 21-year-old queer fangirl who spends too much on the internet — and Robert — a 48-year-old movie buff — as we look at queer representation in television and movies. Saer’s been in just about every fandom for at least a week, and Robert was an ally way before it was cool.

We will examine notable LGBTQ+ characters, relationships, and popular crack-ships throughout history, including: Reddie, Destiel, Twillow, and many more. We will also talk about important history-making shows like Heartstopper and Young Royals. Let’s take a look at how representation has changed over time, how it has improved (or hasn’t), and where we hope representation goes from here.
