My favorite queer podcast

Q4Q is my new favorite queer podcast! So glad I found it :)

My queer enby butt is here for it <3

Just listened to the Take Me Home, Country Dykes episode and what an absolute romp! Haley is a wonderful host and really takes care of their guest. Love the curiosity/open dialogue while they both broke down each ad. Bachelor Cowboy needs to be a movie! Also I will now be referring to myself as intense but drama free. Thanks for the laughs! I will be back!
