Fabulous 👏🏻👏🏻

I'm hooked! Jeffrey is a great host. He asks such great questions and is genuinely interested in his guests. I have been introduced to so many groundbreaking people in the LGBTQ community through his conversations. And so many incredible stories. I just listened to the Lauren Hough episode—I thought it was so great, I decided that it was finally time to write a review.
