The Lesbian Lounge - Sept. 7, 2014

September 9th, 2014

A major, epic catch-up show! The girl's welcome Producer Vic's sister, "Other, other Donna" and everything that's happened in the last 3 weeks gets covered- from The VMA's, to the Emmys, saying good bye to Chelsea, slobber-crying through "The Normal Heart", new tires, old faces, big gay candy stores, and dessert shops- it's all here! Denise reviews "GirlTrash-All Night Long" and has a conversation with exec producer Stacy Codikow of "Power-Up" regarding the film. There's a web series round up, and TWO "Getting to Know You 2014" segments-one live, one not. Chick Music focuses on the group Saucy Monky (www.saucymonky.com) who have released an EP in 3 parts over the past two years called "Trophy Girl". Great stuff. The Internet Golden Nugget is a funky, full on website/blog called www.IdigYourGirlfriend.com We cap it off with funny fat girl flashback in a Best of Clip from June 28, 2007 and end the show with "Good Bye to E!" by Chelsea Handler & friends from her finale.

Meet the talented and funny British out comedian Rosie Wilby!

July 3rd, 2014

Sit back and have a listen to Denise's one on one chat with out British comedian Rosie Wilby. Rosie is one of the hardest working ladies I know, with radio shows (Out In South London and on BBC Sussex), podcasts, stand up comedy gigs, hosting Spoken Word events, doing one woman shows (The Science of Sex, Nineties Woman) with performances coming up at L Fest, in Uttoxeter July 18-21, and in August at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest. If you haven't seen Rosie perform live, you simply must- she's the smartest, thought-provoking comedian (& sometimes musician), always relatable, and can tickle your funny bone about current situations or blasts from the past. www.rosiewilby.com

Marina Rice Bader - “Anatomy of A Love Seen”

July 3rd, 2014

Denise has a great conversation with film maker Marina Rice Bader.

You recognise her name & face and you know she was a producer of "Elena Undone" and "A Perfect Ending" but Marina is flying solo these days as a director of a new feature length film called "Anatomy of A Love Seen" which debuts at Outfest in Los Angeles on July 18th. Here's my one-on-one, very candid chat with her discussing the film, her unique approach to film making- an improvised script- shooting in just 5 days, the idea behind a world-wide online release of the film (July 19th), her cast, the challenges of motherhood, Facebook, and what the future of film making holds for her.
