The Gay Child

The Gay Child

By Meaux and Tate
Best friends Meaux (Mo) and Tate are self-proclaimed soulmates of the unromantic kind. A connection formed out of being the one gay child in the midst of black family values. Their everyday conversation have no limits and The Gay Child is no exception; from coming out and facing LGBTQ+ rights to mental health and even porn. They have only two moods: soberingly serious or explicitly lighthearted.

Why Are We So Obsessed With Labels?
This week, Meaux and Tate contemplate why we are so obsessed with labels and sexual orientations versus our sexual history. Is it okay for a man to still want to identify as "straight" when he's been sleeping with men? Should he feel the pressure of changing his label to "bisexual" or simply "queer"? Also, why do lesbians get called transphobic for saying they hate penises?  Follow Us:  Instagram: @thegaychildpodcast  Twitter: @thegaychildpod  Email: thegaychildpodcast@gmail.com

Debunking Stereotypes and The Truth About How We Have Sex
Call it counterintuitive, but in this episode, sexual stereotypes about gay men and women are debunked but also sharing what we love about sex and what turns us on. We can only speak for ourselves, but as a gay man and a gay woman, we hate being oversexualized but that doesn't mean we hate sex. Not all lesbians want a threesome, not all flamboyant gay men are bottoms, and not all of us are even having sex.  Follow us:  Instagram: @thegaychildpodcast Twitter: @thegaychildpod  Email: thegaychildpodcast@gmail.com
