Then, they discuss the hairpin drop of the week: niceboyed and the Queer essay that Taylor could be linking herself to. Before getting into their analysis of Taylor’s Track Fives, they quickly share their eagerness for Karma and the rest of the Midnights album. Taylor’s Track Fives include Cold As You, White Horse, Dear John, All Too Well, All You Had To Do Was Stay, Delicate, My Tears Ricochet, Tolerate It, and now You’re On Your Own, Kid… They unpack the invisible thread of themes of anxiety and battles, and ponder what the newest Track Five will be about.

With the approach of Midnights, we wanted to give Taylor Swift's poetry the recognition it deserves by revisiting poems she wrote as a child: A Monster In My Closet and Lindsey Claire, as well as the three poems she wrote during the reputation era: The Trick To Holding On, Why She Disappeared, and If You're Anything Like Me. Along with doing queer analysis of each poem, we discuss the reincarnation of Emily Dickinson through Taylor and her flower-decorated pages.  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thearchers/support

Rolling Stone article, the Evelyn Hugo-ness of it all, and manifestations for the Gaylor community. They read the prologue for Midnights and discuss the heartbreaking lines (i.e.: “self made cages”). They reflect on the meaning of Daylight, and the Lover album’s original title track in contrast to Midnights. Finally, they take a look at every lyric of Taylor’s about midnight(s) and nighttime in general, and dream up possibilities for the album.

In The Archers' third song deep-dive episode (following The Archer and New Romantics' Queer analyses), Katie and Madyson read the haunting and cold lyrics to Cowboy Like Me line by line and discuss a mosaic of Queer interpretations of the story. They mention how the lyrics connect to other Queer songs referencing cowboys, and connect the song's first line to Lorde's "Tennis Court". They connect the song to Taylor's themes of bearding and closeting, and prove why the song is one of her most Queer songs in her discography. What is a Sagittarius if not a Cowboy on a horse?

When Taylor wrote Folklore & Evermore she crafted a world where girls fall in love with each other everyday; a world with purple pink skies, salt air, flushed cheeks, the golden sun & sweet tea. In this hour, we will dive into the imagined world of Taylor’s Folkmore, drawing connections and making sweet speculations, and hopefully discover together why the stars in Dorothea’s eyes seem to shine so much brighter in Tupelo.

Theylor Interpretations explores the ways Taylor has blurred the gender binary in her work using intentional pronoun changes, gender perspectives, non-binary themes, gendered language, and Queer codes that extend further than relational and sexual Queerness. It will also question the progression of cisheterosexual normativity in Taylor's career, and the possibility of her being gender non-conforming. Follow Ember on TikTok: @emberk39!

So in this episode, they read through the prologues/forewords of each of Taylor’s albums AND included her foreword for Carolina. Breaking down these forewords in retrospect, they notice references to tolerate it, mirrorball, daylight, and many more prolific moments (as per usual). At the end of the episode, they discuss their favorite lyrics from Carolina.

With the help of the fellow Gaylors listed above, Katie and Madyson discuss the video’s subtle nods to lesbian country singer Chely Wright, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, Girls by the 1975, and *another* stonewall reference.

Much like the sapphic poet Emily Dickinson, Taylor uses he/him pronouns to cover queerness in her songs. Madyson summarizes Taylor’s queer use of pronouns in folklore/evermore as more intentionally coded than previous albums, and her focus on "you". Katie presents a vivid interpretation of Forever & Always, explaining its switches from “you” to “he” to “I” to “we” as Taylor witnessing her Lover BFF's breakup. They revel in the fact that they manifested This Love (Taylor’s Version) and end the episode with their first reactions to the ethereal rerecording.

Listen to them discover the demo lyrics for Picture To Burn and Teardrops On My Guitar, and find out that Taylor was inspired by lesbian singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge. Along with queer lyrical analysis, the archers decode cryptic lyrics that listeners were puzzled by. What's more queer than windows, wrecking plans, rhinestones, mental illness, and honey?

Each of them do a lyrical deep dive into a song from reputation: Sunny proves why "Dress" is sapphic text, Madyson compares "Dancing With Our Hands Tied" to Taylor's themes of secrecy, Renaissance questions why Taylor doesn't see her boyfriend in "Gorgeous, and Katie's virgo moon gives a critical reading of "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things". The four gaylors share their journeys of being queer Taylor Swift fans and reflect on both sides of the Kanye fued in an attempt to contextualize TIWWCHNT, and end up theorizing that it could be about someone else.  This podcast is not affiliated with Taylor Swift, her companies, or affiliated companies.

Support us on Patreon ($5 monthly) for two bonus episodes every month: patreon.com/thearchers Connect with us on Twitter: twitter.com/TheArchersPod Since this was originally a Patreon exclusive episode, we edited out all of the juicy gossip to share our thoughts on The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo with our main feed listeners (check out our Patreon to hear the full 2 hour episode!). In this episode, we go through the book and point out quotes that eerily resemble Taylor Swift and/or her public persona. We also discuss how Evelyn and Celia's relationships to the male gaze, and the expectations of women in Hollywood, were their ultimate demise. Listen to us unpack PR relationships, homophobia in Hollywood, relationship anarchy, compulsory heterosexuality, and the possibility that Taylor Swift herself had a hand in the writing of this book.  Disclaimer: Any talk of Taylor Jenkins Reid is never intended to discredit her work or her writing! We just think it's fun to theorize that Taylor could have contributed to ghost-writing the book. This podcast is not affiliated with Taylor Swift, her companies, or affiliated companies.

Support us on Patreon ($5 monthly) for two bonus episodes every month: patreon.com/thearchers Connect with us on Twitter: twitter.com/TheArchersPod Katie and Madyson pick apart New Romantics from 1989 with a queer fine-toothed comb, as this is the first Taylor Swift song to directly reference Stonewall (yes, there's more than one). Madyson shares where the term "new romantics" originated from and Katie theorizes about Taylor's ongoing train metaphor. They disprove Genius' lyrics interpretation of the song as "satire", explaining how Taylor is actually celebrating the danger of being young and discovering who you love. While decoding the metaphor of Taylor's "castle", they connect the song to other songs like Holy Ground, Call It What You Want, Willow, and Champagne Problems. Somewhere in the episode, they also outline what a Gaylor nation would look like: a land of lawless heartbreak (basically NYC). --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thearchers/support

Info & registration is here: patreon.com/posts/gaylore-group-is-62209896 In the second part of The Archers’ Evermore queer analysis, Katie and Madyson continue to explore the queer invisible string that connects happiness (0:00), dorothea (12:23), coney island (28:27), ivy (38:15), cowboy like me (50:15), long story short (1:03:51), marjorie (1:08:56), closure (1:12:38), evermore (1:18:07), right where you left me (1:27:14), and it’s time to go (1:37:16). They explain how dorothea connects to the folklore love triangle, and their theory that dorothea and augustine skipped prom together. Madyson connects coney island to All Too Well (10 minute version); Katie explains why hoax and right where you left me are basically the same song. And of course, the significance of invisible string and cowboy like me both being track 11. This podcast is not affiliated with Taylor Swift, her companies, or affiliated companies.

Support us on Patreon ($5 monthly) for two bonus episodes every month: patreon.com/thearchers Connect with us on Twitter: twitter.com/TheArchersPod In the first part of this episode, Katie and Madyson reveal what they think the gayest song is from what they think is *one of* Taylor Swift's gayest albums. Celebrating evermore's Grammy nomination, they go through the track list to connect the 17 songs to its Grammy-winning sister album's 17 songs, folklore. Part I explores: willow (21:03), champagne problems (36:06), gold rush (52:04), 'tis the damn season (1:04:07), tolerate it (1:16:00), and no body no crime (1:29:44). Katie names champagne problems a Bell Jar song; Madyson explains why it (kind of) connects to Ed Sheeran and Vance Joy. They describe how the cycles of grief run through the album like a thread, and Katie explains the plot line of no body no crime to Madyson...concluding that Taylor should end up with the mistress.

Firstly, Katie reveals that Shakira is a lesbian. Sean offers a less biased perspective on the film's themes of isolation and its unfinished nature. They discuss the irony of Taylor craving privacy while being on camera, and how the film contradicts itself more than once. Katie and Madyson sprinkle in some queer analysis of the song Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince. This podcast is not affiliated with Taylor Swift, her companies, or affiliated companies.
