For the 18th episode of season 4, your fearless triad – Courtney Kocak, Sofiya Alexandra & Dave Rankin – is thrilled to welcome writer & comedian Travon Free.
First: The triad talks about the spectrum of sexuality, that we're all a little gay & how male bisexuality is discouraged in our culture.
Then: Travon waxes poetic & hilarious about the unnecessary sexualization of the term bisexual, his new series in development with Issa Rae & HBO called Him or Her, what it's like to be the Jackie Robinson of bi guys in Hollywood, the bi double standard: why is it okay or encouraged for women, but not for men?, the fact that a lot of straight male culture is actually pretty gay, the book Not Gay by Jane Ward, publically coming out via a blog post in 2011, the changing media landscape in terms of LGBTQ+ issues, the slower shift towards acceptance in less liberal communities, gay-straight alliances in high school, the invisible B, leaning into your partner’s identity, his first relationship with a man which inspired him to come out to his family and pursue TV writing, landing his 1st big job on The Daily Show, staying friends with exes, religion & sexuality, coining the term "bignostic" for bisexuals' natural tendency to be agnostic & his type.
