Quick Hit: ‘Queer Inquiries’ makes podcasts sexy!


You know, I’ve never been one for podcasts. Something about them reminds me of NPR broadcasts and I find myself either bored to death or itching to actually see what the voices are doing. Podcasts were not on my sexy list.

But then things like ‘Queer Inquiries’ exist and get me all caught up. The podcast is a complex, witty, and completely random conversation piece about what it really means to be queer, at least for the three of them. Here is what the creators say:

“Queer Inquiries is a podcast created with the goal of broadcasting real queer voices in order to help queer identified folks become a part of the pop culture dialogue about gay people.  Gay visibility in pop culture is bigger than ever before and Queer Inquiries’ creators are frustrated with the stereotyped nature of gay representation on TV and in movies.  Each episode is a conversation between a different bunch of queers, covering subjects like discovering queerness, coming out, queer sex, masturbation, and the impact of TV and film on our understanding of ourselves.  We want to tell queers’ stories in order to impact our culture’s general understanding of queerness and to create safe space for queers and folks who are still struggling to understand their sexuality and gender.”

I’m with it. Only one episode in and they’re already talking about masturbating! Awesome. Sauce. You can check it out here them here, here, and here!

I think we can expect lots of wonderful gay stuff from this bunch and I’m thrilled to say I know them!
