Rowan Ellis says: Dungeons, Dragons, and DaBaby

Season 1, Episode 3,  Aug 03, 2021, 02:41 PM

This week, Alex Woolhouse (she/her) and Shivani Dave (they/them) are joined by Rowan Ellis (she/her), the YouTuber behind a range of amazing LGBTQ+ and pop culture videos. We talk about the response to rapper DaBaby’s reported homophobic comments; representation at the Olympics; and Rowan explains why we need to look out for ‘queerbaiting’ and
‘queercoding’ in everything we watch. Plus, Alex advises how you can change your name.
