To celebrate Pride Month this June, we’ve put together a list of 10 great podcasts from around the world which explore and celebrate LGBTQ people, viewpoints and culture.
Busy Being Black with Josh Rivers is the podcast exploring how we live in the fullness of our queer Black lives. Guests so far have included activist Bisi Alimi, art and fashion curator Ryan Lanji and poet Dean Atta.
The queer, intersectional, storytelling podcast from National Student Pride. Keeping the pride of conversation (its annual event for LGBT+ students) a discussion that carries on all year round.This podcast tells stories that are beyond the binary - “sex-positive and with unicorns spewing rainbows everywhere.”
Jonny McGovern and his crew of “hilarious homo homies” go on NSFW rants about everything from celebrity gossip and comedy to sex talk and music. Perfect for those who like their entertainment loud, proud, and totally ridiculous.
LGBTQ+ musicians and bands are showcased in interviews and mixtapes. Perfect for audiophiles and culture aficionados.
Julie Goldman (the gay) and Brandy Howard (the dumbass) dissect political news every Tuesday. Perfect for the politics junky who likes their facts served with a heaping spoonful of feelings.
BFFs Kathy Tu and Tobin Low are super queer, super fun and ready to take over your podcast feed. Join them for provocative stories and frank conversations about the LGBTQ experience today. Because everyone’s a little bit gay. WNYC Studios is the producer of other podcasts including Radiolab, Death, Sex & Money, 2 Dope Queens and many others.
Two best friends and queer Latinxs talking about life, pop culture, academia, astrology, and identity politics. Their episodes are on the longer side but so worth really diving in for a listen. Angélica Becerra and Jackie Cáraves are hilarious and passionate as they discuss all the ways in which their queer and Latinx identities intersect. Anzalduing It is a reference from Gloria Anzaldua’s “Borderlands,” which applies to the code switching Chicanos and other people of color experience, especially when living in border-towns.
Hosted by “feminasty” Erin Gibson and “homosensual” Bryan Safi. Throwing Shade is political comedy first and foremost, but Gibson and Safi also deliver brilliant takes on pop culture, current events, and women’s and LGBT rights with the hilarity of two people who are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore. You’ll never look at a Whole Foods the same again.
A roundtable discussion podcast wherein a multiracial mix of queer writers talk sex, relationships, race, identity, what we like to read, and who we like to read.
Sit in on an hour long-conversation between host and standup comic, Cameron Esposito, and some of the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ family. QUEERY explores individual stories of identity, personality and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality and civil rights.
