AfterEllen’s Chat Room: “Meeting Women” (Episode 2)


The internet is full of videos with lesbians explaining how or why or what we do to inquiring minds. Daytime TV is full of women (and sometimes lesbians!) who talk from a queer point of view on broad topics. But what we wanted to create with AfterEllen’s Chat Room was a place where women who date other women come together and answer questions about ex-girlfriends, friendships, family relationships and other topics that we have unique (and differing) perspectives on. We’ll have a different panel of lezsplainers (as we affectionally call them) every episode, sharing their own thoughts, ideas and experiences.

In the second episode, we are talking about dating. What’s the best way to meet women? Is Tinder the new OkCupid? And does it work?
