Do You Regret Coming Out?

Les Talk About It

In this episode of Les Talk About It, Sheena and Tamara talk about why someone would regret coming out and why you shouldn’t push someone to do it.

Tamara also comes up with a great new idea for a show.

About The Hosts

Sheena comes from a media background and in 2014 she started The Lesbian Review, a website dedicated to reviewing the best lesbian books and movies. In 2016 A podcast channel seemed like a natural progression and so she started The Lesbian Talk Show

Sheena discovered lesbian fiction in her late teens and it helped her with her coming out process, something for which she will always be grateful. 

Tamara is a marketing professional and has branched out into design and photography. Her natural love for research and learning meant that she was the perfect podcast partner when Sheena wanted to start Les Talk About It. (Well, that and the fact that Tamara is married to Sheena.) 

About The Show 

Les Talk About It is a show dedicated to busting the myths around lesbians. We look at everything from flannel to lesbians being cat ladies, loving softball and having carabiners. 

One of the first shows to be started on The Lesbian Talk Show, it has been running since 2016.
