Homophobia in Star Wars w/ Pink Milk After Dark
On this special crossover episode we are sharing with you a conversation from Bryan, Emma, and Chase from the Pink Milk: After Dark show. This conversation entitled "Homophobia in Star Wars" is born out of the release and subsequent backlash of the trailer for the Star Wars: Eclipse video game and its connection and development by the studio Quantic Dream. The owner of Quantic Dream has said many problematic things especially as relates to women and members of the LGBTQ+ family as well as reportedly fostered hostile work environments around these same groups of people. This conversation is a way for you, the listener, to hear from those most directly effected by these types of decisions and how it relates to their fandom.  I want to add a special thank you to Bryan for sharing this conversation to put in the POTW feed. I want to be an ally to my queer brothers and sisters but also recognize that I don't come from a place to be able to speak authoritatively to these issues so I am glad to share the voices of my friends who should be heard. If you aren't already listening to Pink Milk I highly recommend that you subscribe and follow them on all their social media channels (@servingpinkmilk on Twitter).    -Nick
