Sit in on an hour long-conversation between host and standup comic, Cameron Esposito, and some of the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ family. QUEERY explores individual stories of identity, personality and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality and civil rights.
Andrea Gibson (#2)
Poet Andrea Gibson sits down with Cameron (again!) to discuss how their cancer diagnosis has made them funnier, Sister Megan Rice and the Outlaw Nuns, and feeling comfortable not being tough.
State Representative Renitta Shannon sits down with Cameron to discuss how voter restriction laws target the LGBTQIA+ community, her historical race to be elected Lt. Governor of Georgia, and coming out while holding an elected office because she won't run away from a fight.
Reverend Jes Kast
Reverend Jes Kast sits down with Cameron to discuss which Christians get a megaphone, the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and how everyone deserves the respect and dignity of bodily autonomy.
Brandi Carlile (Re-Release)
Original release date: June 21, 2021. Singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile returns to talk with Cameron about her new book BROKEN HORSES, the brotherhood with the men in her band, and wearing clothes that make you feel confident.
Chef Christina Wilson sits down with Cameron to discuss getting cast on Hell's Kitchen, working under Gordon Ramsay, and how cooking competition shows have helped push gender balance in the world of professional chefs.
Writer Ijeoma Oluo sits down with Cameron to discuss loving makeup, the life of her book SO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RACE, and having a queer therapist.
Love the interviews, especially with Alice Wu and Vico Ortiz, and this podcast prompted me to listen to Save Yourself, which was amazing as an audiobook!
Ode to queer representation
Cameron is like the up-and-coming queer Terry Gross. This pod really defines the fact that queer people are just that… people. The host brings the guests stories to light and gives a great platform for all that queer people are and can be. As other stated, can be quirky in that the host turns the attention to their own experiences but it’s somewhat like being a fly on the wall in a conversation between friends.
I have not exhausted the episode list but I would love to hear from more queer people in STEM versus the entertainment/art industry.
Self congratulatory holier than thou tendencies from a host who cannot help but center themselves in every convo…if you can’t figure it out by listening to the interview rhythms, don’t worry the host will remind you she was raised rich and catholic in the Midwest….we can tell from the savior complex.. Don’t “learn to be queer” from this one, look at queer archives
