The "new normal" of COVID-19 is hard, y'all. And it's definitely taking a toll on our collective mental health. Veer Queer interviewer Deondre B. Moore sits down with Kevin Anderson, founder and CEO of the T.R.U.T.H.

Food—it's what brings us together, a way to show our love, and a tie to our cultural roots.

Episode 33: Where Do Democrats Go From Here?
In this episode, Veer Queer interviewer Deondre B. Moore recaps the March 3 political primaries with guest Mike Webb, president of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus. On the presidential front, the Democrats are left with candidates Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden—what does this mean for the QTPOC community? In local Houston races, many gay, white male candidates are losing their races to Black women. What does this say about the needs of progressive and LGBTQ communities at this point in our movement? Plus, updates on COVID-19.
Beer Queer thoughts
A brilliant podcast that details many of the challenges queer people face, by also detailing specifically the challenges faced by queer Texans and Houstonians. The panelists are all very intelligent and well spoken, and they are also fun to listen to.
4.5 Stars (stay humble)
Great listen about queer culture which focuses on the life experiences of podcasting team within the city of Houston, Texas. Chemistry between hosts makes it easy and welcoming to engage with a life experience that may not have been your own. If it is, even more fun.
