Don’t sleep on Safewordsociety

I’ve been listening to this podcast from the beginning. Every week, I am impressed with how Safewordsociety upholds their mission of visibility for QTPOC. I hear familiar and new voices on each episode. They do a great job at giving a platform to some important narratives. I love it!

Black Queer Joy

Every episode is always such a pleasure to listen to. I deliberately make my commutes longer to listen to this podcast in my car's speakers. Creating the greatest amount of happiness and minimizing pain are the most worthwhile purposes in politics.

An Important and Vital Outlet for Our Community

I had never listened to podcasts before I learned of SafeWordSociety and Ive been hooked ever since. The topics, the guests and the hosts are so organic and intriguing that i feel like i'm sitting at a table next to them at brunch having important convos about our lives, about your wellness and thriving as QPOC in this world. Its refreshing. Keep bringing the heat ladies!
