Love listening

This podcast is so necessary and important! Looking at media from a queer perspective is always something we need more of and this podcast does it well with great guests and a sense of humor.

The All Rise content I crave

Love that this show covers a wide variety of feel and LGBTQ culture not just the stuff most shows focus on. Movies, TV, comics, video games and more! Perfect for the gay geek.
