Episode 35 (Season 3) – June Aaj Ka Kabootar + Q&A with Dr. Merchant

June 17, 2017

Hey there, June-bugs! How’re you doing? Here’s wishing ya’ll pretty little cupcakes Happy Pride month! Keeping that in mind, for this week’s episode we have invited Dr. Merchant back on our show, so that impart some of her expert advice and pearls of wisdom on LGBTQ issues. If you guys remember, we’ve had Dr. Merchant on for Episode 33. She is a clinical psychologist practicing in NYC, specializing in working with LGBT youth.

 Also, do you know what time it is? It’s time to give a Show the Bhindi Award! Sweety has picked a winner for this week’s episode. The very fierce news channel anchor, Faye D’Souza. In case that name is not familiar, you need to watch her shut Maulana Yasoob Abbas down for his very sexist comment. We’ve watched this clip quite a few times already. And from this point forth at any encounter with sexist a$$holes, what we’ll be asking ourselves would be ‘What would Faye do?’. #WWFD

 For this week’s Filmy Chakkar segment Sweety will be giving her review of Wonder Woman, and Pappu shares why she has not watched this movie yet, and may just give it a pass. Yes, Gal Gadot is incandescent as Wonder Woman, but wouldn’t Priyanka Chopra be mind-blowing? (have you watched her 73 Questions Vogue video?) Or maybe Deepika… Putting it out there for the universe…

 Sweety shares her latest social media obsession: the Piano Cat guy. And reads out a fan mail from Sahar and lays it down on why she thinks that Kim K. deserves to be called white.

 Stay tuned for our interview with Dr. Almas. Here are some of her favourite queer literature recommendations to add to your reading list this month: Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera, Snapshots of a Girl by Beldan Sezen, Beautiful Music for Ugly Children by Kirstin Cronn-Mills.
