Waiting to X-hale

Jun 13, 2022

Wynter is out of the country, so Karen invited her longtime gaysian/theysian pals, Summer Kim Lee (a cultural critic and UCLA professor), and JJ Chan (an artist and designer based in Brooklyn) to talk about the highly anticipated gay(sian) rom-com, Hulu’s Fire Island. The three talk about some of their own summer gaycations together and apart, while diving deep into the details of Fire Island down to its most resonant moments with Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, to what JJ calls the “Cherry Grove aesthetic” of Margaret Cho’s house, despite the film’s setting in the Pines. 
Plus: Karen takes her wife Sarah to Disneyland for her very first visit to the Magic Kingdom, JJ gosses about “eyebrow gate” on Gentleman Jack, and Summer FINALLY gets into Survivor after 42 seasons. 
And, nuo-lingo from a real life millennial and three #thatgirl summer jams!
