In honor of Pride month, all June we'll be delving into the G&G archives to re-share past interviews with some some of our favorite LGBTQ wrestlers.

 

When we scheduled an interview with Effy for the middle of June 2020 it was for a tongue-in-cheek Father's Day episode we were going to call Daddy's Day.  Generally speaking, we don't interview male wrestlers on this show but thought we could make an exception here and focus on the talk on women's wrestling-related themes like intergender wrestling and LGBTQ representation.  We set a recording date and time with Effy's plan being to talk to Harley & Emily while he and AC Mack drove to their first show in months.  Then, less than 24 hours before our interview was set to take place, #SpeakingOut cracked the wrestling world wide open.

 

In this interview re-live our emotions in real-time as we all struggled to process years of systemic abuse being brought to light, as well as Effy's thoughts on how to build a brighter, better pro wrestling landscape for everyone.

In honor of Pride month, all June we'll be delving into the G&G archives to re-share past interviews with some some of our favorite LGBTQ wrestlers.

 

On January 19, 2021 G&G conducted our first interview of 2021 with Edith Surreal (then known as Still Life With Apricots & Pears).  Harley & Meg spoke to Edith about how Philadelphia shaped her, the evolution of her ring gear, transitioning in the public eye, her beloved 2020 match against Dark Sheik, and what a Surreal-hosted show might look like.
