Voices in the LGBTQ+ community are often silenced, and it's time our thoughts and opinions were heard!

Back in 2020, Matt & Pat started What Do The Gays Think? as an opinion podcast to share our (gay) thoughts on recent topics in pop culture, politics, and everything and anything gay. This podcast has evolved over time and we are now reviewing community opinions (by sending out surveys!), providing insightful queer media reviews, and getting into deep and thought-provoking discussions. Oh, and Jackie joined us as a 3rd co-host as well (the best part!!)

Are you ready to dive into the depths and wonders of the LGBTQ+ community? Let's do it! What do the gays REALLY think??

    The Gays React to Operation Blockout & Jasmine Crockett vs Marjorie Taylor Greene

    The Gays React to Operation Blockout & Jasmine Crockett vs Marjorie Taylor Greene

    Things have heated up over these last few weeks, and these topics beg for discussion! The Gays get together and chat about Operation Blockout, the movement among social media users to block celebrities who are not using their platforms to speak about important issues. We also talk about the heated exchange between Jasmine Crockett and Marjorie Taylor Greene, bringing up discussions of racism and sexism that is ever present in our politics. Hop into the discussion and let us know what you think in the comments!

    CORRECTION - In this episode Matt mentions that grass only evolved 100,000 years ago, but the truth is that it evolved ~55 million years ago, which is still relatively recently in the grand scheme of Earth's life of 4 billion years.
