    "I felt like there's a story that we don't hear enough of about intersex people, which is that it's amazing and wonderful to be intersex."

A very important podcast for everyone to listen to, so DO IT!

I love that people from all over the LGBTQ+ community are interviewed and we get to hear their stories. This podcast is very informative and real. I think everyone should this to this, in the queer/LGBTQ+ community and not.

A rich and diverse survey of queer history and current events

I’ve looked long and hard for solid sources of information on queer topics, and nothing beats this podcast for quality and diversity.

The show has been particularly strong lately on providing historical context for challenges currently faced by less visible sexual and gender minorities.
