Mika and Tracy – LezWatch.TV Co-Founders

Who are the queer women behind the site?

LezWatch.TV Co-founders, Mika and Tracy, are WordPress developers, lesbians, and married. Just not to each other. Tracy owns a web development agency in Philly, while Mika wrangles WordPress for a webhosting company south of LA. Together, they fight crime! The crime of dead queer females on TV!

With tenacity, thousands of TV watching hours between them, and the help of a dedicated editorial staff, they have managed to document 6362 queer characters and 2070 shows.

Mika A. Epstein (Co-Editor in Chief)

Mika has been deep in fandom since she could say ‘Trekkie.’ With decades experience in running fansites, developing software, and organizing communities, she’s taken on the challenge of delving into the recesses of television for queers long forgotten. Making this site with Tracy is nothing short of serendipity. Mika lives with her wife and their cats in Southern California. Of course she has a hybrid, but she’d rather ride her bicycle.

Tracy Levesque (Co-Editor in Chief)

America’s favorite biracial, TV obsessed lesbian. Tracy will watch almost any show with queer female characters and has a lot to say about it. She is happy to have joined queer WordPress superpowers with Mika to build this site. She lives with her wife and kid in Philly.

Nikki is an archivist by day, queer TV addict by night. Her first dive into fan content was when she ran a secret Xanga blog dedicated to pictures of Lorelai Gilmore in the 7th grade. She has never looked back.

Editorial Staff


Carmel is that one queer friend who seems to be involved in every project or convention somehow. In person she holds herself with the same level of energy and sarcasm as MTV icon Daria, but online…. so many gifs. A universe of gifs and yelling about queer things


A Media Studies graduate, Laura has been consumed by fictional media ever since she learned what it was. A former TV reviewer, she now spends her days simply attempting to consume all good queer media there is…slowly.

Melanie Aswell

Melanie first offered her fangirl opinion on a TV show at age 12, when she wrote an angry letter to CBS about their cancellation of Cagney & Lacey. She is still just as passionate about her favorite shows, and currently lives in Boston with her beloved Apple TV.

Mia Levesque

Mia is Tracy’s wife, and they share a love of TV. Born at 8pm, her family always joked that she arrived just in time for primetime.
