Folks say the difference between a straight man and a gay man is a six pack – of beer. Until recently that’s been the premise of your favorite gay adult film but now it’s a real thing because science.

Today, comedian Carma Nibarger, who spends a lot of time in bars watching folks get all lovey dovey after kicking back a few shots, joins us to weigh in on booze, boys and bromosexuality.

  1. Yay! Carma Nibarger!

    Thanks for the shout-out on the show, Fausto! Translating queer American English and camp humor is difficult. When translating to Spanish, it also depends what country you are targeting. Every country has different slang. Some of the words Fausto used today to translate RuPaul’s Drag Race are good for Puerto Rico, but not necessarily for Spain or Mexico or Argentina. So that’s the first question you have to ask. English is the same: slang is different in England, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Jamaica, Barbados, etc. The Comedy Central preview says the show will be airing in Mexico and Colombia, so they are going for a very neutral, basic Spanish. That is why it sounds so weird. No character at all! Translation is tricky and I would say this is a particularly bad one.

    I am reading Caitlyn Jenner’s memoir, The Secrets of My Life, co-written with Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger, and enjoying it quite a bit. She talks at length about all of the help she had as a young athlete in high school, college and then training for the Olympics. I find the book more accessible and engaging than listening to Caitlyn on TV. That is the wonder of books! It is a good read and has photos!
