#002. XENA: A CULTURAL ICON FOR LGBTQ+
Airdate: May 2, 2020
Xenites around the world know the power her yell wielded & the effect the show had on us all. In this episode, Kimberly and Sheila discuss Xena: Warrior Princess and what the show meant to them. The character was only supposed to last three episodes on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. However, once Xena graced the small screen, it was clear she was meant for greater things. The spinoff eclipsed Hercules to become a cult favorite that continues to garner fans to this very day. In a time when representation was controlled by corporations, politicians and fear – Xena pushed boundaries and gave us something to hold on to.
