Round 2… FIGHT!: Star Wars Lady Wars (Rouge One, Coded Gay Characters, Books for Black Teens & You, Carrie Fisher, Black Authors Galore, Moonlight, TV Shows With Gay Characters)

Episode 65

26th January 2017

The gloves. Come. Off. It is our 2nd annual fight! And this might be the one that breaks the Korner (but probably not). Nnekay and James haven’t disagreed this much since Tesla back in episode 5. Stripped from the cutting room floor it’s all of our bonus segments from the past month that were cut for time, but woah is this some juicy material. First James tackles the coded gay characters in Rogue One, and calls out the film industry for it’s lack of gay representation, and points out some TV shows are representing. But first there’s a fight. Then Nnekay gives us another fabulous list of books every Black teenager (and/or human being) needs to read. It is an action packed episode! So hold on to your butts!
