418: Stuck in Himbo with Jesse Nowack

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) chat with our good friend, the multitalented Jesse Nowack (@nowackinghellyeah) about our favorite himbos and trans male media representation. If you’ve listened to the podcast before, you know how much we love a himbo. Incase you are not familiar with the term, a “himbo” generally refers to a muscular man who has a big, kind heart but is not exactly the sharpest crayon in the box. It’s essentially the antidote to toxic masculinity. A himbo is the difference between a Kronk and a Gaston. We talk to Jesse about his experience being a trans male himbo. Jesse also teaches us about the types of himbos, like the himbim, herbo, and thembo. Listen for a vocabulary lesson you never knew you needed. We talk about lesbians and their emotional support himbos in media, like Robin and Steve in Stranger Things and Ellie and Paul in The Half of It. We also discuss trans himbo TikTok and how empowering it has been for the trans community. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.
