We have a full house for our Season 5 premiere, including our favorite guest Lis and guest co-host Jose, and a special visit from Saidue’s sister in law.

RompHims have caused a commotion on the internet, but the co-hosts have their own opinion on the latest “fashion trend.”

Queer State of Mind turned one this week, and we celebrated by taking the week off and enjoying Friendsgiving leftovers. But, we put together clips from some of our best segments and interviews this year.

Take a listen to our first show on the air, where we talk about the 2015 holiday phenomenon Patti’s Sweet Potato Pie and the viral clip that put the pie sales off the charts.

And, if you live in the city, you know that sometimes the subways aren’t your friend. Co-host Orie was tardy for the show and Saidue and Justin held it down with a candid conversation on online dating.

Plus we take a listen back to our queers on the mic special edition with former co-hosts Chinwe and Terron, and our favorite interviews with fabulous NYC performers Melli B, Chris Harder and Sir Honey Davenport, Robbyne Kaamil and Richie Bee and Peter Savad from Deitre.

…So that happened.

No way around it. Say hello to (small gagging noise) President Elect Donald Trump.

Grab a seat and pop open that champagne you were saving for Hillary’s inevitable victory, and let’s talk election night. Our hosts mull over the pain of watching Hillary’s defeat from the swing state of Ohio, the shade emerging in the path of the election’s destruction, and what this means for the social justice movement going forward.

Beyond that, our hosts attempt to cool it down a bit, taking down the other important questions facing American society, such as, “Who the hell came up with the idea to gentrify collard greens?” Apparently, Neiman Marcus found someone to make them a bunch to sell at $66, and they sold completely out. Thanks to The Root, we didn’t have to try them ourselves, but we take a listen to their hilarious video and laughed right along with them.

And a deep examination of, “Is there ever really a good time to carry a douche with you on the train?”

Joining us for the brunchtime shade is our good friend Micah, whose own political aspirations might have him on the campaign trail someday soon back home in Arizona.


Turn that sound up, girl, and let us be your cure for the post-election blues. And, don’t worry, The Resistance is mounting.

Take a deep breath and say it with us: President. Donald. Trump.

Join our hosts as they comment – and commiserate – on the election results that some saw coming, but few outspokenly anticipated. We discuss the pain of watching Hillary’s chances fall from Ohio, the “Becky on Becky shade” emerging from the rubble, and the results that validated what many in the social justice community felt all along.

There are fewer than three months until Inauguration Day, and like many Americans, we still have questions.  Where do we go next? Have we reached, as Orie put it, “Peak fucking ignorance”? And will this be a wake-up call for those who’ve ignored or rationalized the problems that fueled the rise of Trump? Or will people continue to bury their heads in the sand? Grab some tea (or a cocktail), take a seat, and embrace the truth, pettiness and shade that are the only remedies for this disaster of an election.
