Incredible, Authentic Stories that Produce a Range of Emotions

I love attending OutSpoken in person at Sidetrack so I’m glad they have made this podcast so we can continue listening to stories while social distancing. I always leave these storytelling events and these podcasts having learned something new about LGBTQ history, shed a few tears, and laughed hysterically. The stories cover a wide range of the LGBTQ history. If you are a fan of storytelling events like The Moth and want an LGBTQ history, this is the right podcast for you!

Enlightening.

Insightful and fascinating. Found this through Queer Serial (which is also definitely worth a listen). I am excited for more episodes! Thank you to the producers of this for making it happen.

Outstanding!!!

So happy to see these as a podcast! If you can, go to the live nights at Sidetrack, but until then, these live story tellings are some of the best you’ll ever hear.
