lacie and robin

Lacie & Robin have been together for 21 years. They host a YouTube Channel. Their videos are hilarious while still being very informative. My personal favorite are the videos where they take questions from their subscribers. Link to their channel is at the end of this blog.

Name: Lacie Harmon & Robin Greenspan

Nickname: Lace & Robs

Where do you live? L.A., baby!

How do you identify? Robin: I’m very proud of my lesbian gold star status. Lacie: I’m bisexual but no one believes me.

What has been your biggest struggle? Currently, keeping the ants out of our kitchen.

What do you consider your greatest achievement? Being together for 21 years and still making each other laugh.

What would you say to someone considering coming out of the closet? Don’t do it for anyone other than yourself.  You’ll know the right time. Make sure it’s safe to do so before you do it. Find people in the community who can help you. It DOES get better.

What are your hobbies? We love nothing more than collapsing on the sofa and binge-watching TV together. With Trader Joe’s herbal popcorn.

What is your favorite TV show? Right now, we both shiver with anticipation over “Silicon Valley”, “Bob’s Burgers”, “Better Things” and “Baskets”.

Who is your favorite superhero? Robin: Too easy. Wonder Woman. Lacie: That’s the one that’s in the movie now, right? The actress is superb and I look forward to seeing it.

What have you learned about yourself since you came out? Robin: That I’m stronger than I thought I was. Lacie: It’s been 30 years. How long you got?

What are your pet peeves? Robin: Wrong use of you’re/your. Lacie: Don’t forget should’ve/should of. There is NO such thing as should of. It just sounds like that when you say it.

What is your favorite thing about you? Lacie: My kindness. It’s my favorite thing in anyone.  Robin: Determination to find the humor in everything.

Who has been the most influential person in your life? Each other. No contest.

What advice would you give to your LGBT family? You’re authenticity is needed. Your voice is needed. And, you’re loved.

Do you have pets? As lesbians, we’re required by law to have at least two cats. Their names are Francis and Lionel. We’re idiots for them.

What is your favorite book? Robin: “Take Me to Truth” by Nouk Sanchez. Lacie:  Oooh, I love that book, too. The author lives in a cave now (no joke) but she’s brilliant and the book is profoundly truthful.

If you had 24 hrs to live, what would you do? Ask everyone reading this to subscribe to our YouTube channel: “Lacie and Robin”.
