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.
