Advocate Magazine recently declared “Now, we have officially entered The Golden Age of podcasts, many of which are explicitly, overtly, outrageously queer. These 12 are the best of the best and the queerest of the queer.”
In case you’re wondering…Could Be Better Podcast did not make the list.
And while we would love to tag our omission for hate, we really must tag the rise of LGBTQ podcast for LOVE!
LGBTQ podcasts have been getting attention for a few years now. What we love about this year’s Advocate’s list is the increased diversity and perspectives featured. We are the first to acknowledge gay, white, cisgender, men have taken up a lot of space in the LGBTQ universe. Queer podcasts offer us a way to plug into a multitude of voices. Dare we say they are a pathway to greater understanding, celebration, and equality?
It is probably safe to say that the patrons of the Stonewall Inn could have never imagined a world where LGBTQ experiences could be so easily accessed when they rose up and fought against police harassment and brutality 50 years ago this month.
Our LGBTQ (Podcasters) Pride keeps us from being too upset we haven’t made the best of the best Queer podcasts list just yet.
But watch out next year, bitches! 😉
