"I Don't Hide My Lesbianism. It Is Always A Kernel Of Everything I Do" (with Gretchen Phillips)

So, if you've ever listened to this show before you'll know that I often talk to my guests about straight people in queer spaces... and, for the most part people are not exactly against the idea, but fear that it can compromise the integrity of a space, or... just make it a bit more boring...

Well, this week's guest, Gretchen Phillips, has an entirely different view, and wants to see a world where there is more integration, and more 'reaching across the aisle', as she puts it...

Gretchen is an influential singer-songwriter, who currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, but spent a good proportion of her life in Austin, Texas, where she was involved in cult bands Meat Joy, Girls in the Nose, and Two Nice Girls. 

It was with Two Nice Girls that she released he best known compositions, 'The Queer Song', and 'I Spent My Last $10 (on Birth Control and Beer)', a song which sends up heterosexual relationships.

We got together to talk about Chances, a lesbian bar in Austin that Gretchen started visiting in the 80s, and the space where she first laid eyes on her partner of 30 years.... 

Do you have any memories of Chances, or clubbing from your own queer scene that you want to share? Well, if you have please get in touch - I want to create the biggest online record of people's memories and stories - go to www.lostspacespodcast.com and find the section 'Share a Lost Space' and tell me what you got up to! Bonus points for embarrassing photos!
