135: Andrea Jenkins

2/10/2021
Today we continue celebrating Black History Month and this year we are covering Black literary giants, their works, and how they inspired the movements of yesterday and today. This week we get current as we discuss a woman living in the heart of today’s civil rights protests, Andrea Jenkins. She is the first Black, transgender woman elected to public office and serves on the seat of the Minneapolis City Council in Minnesota. But before Andrea was a politician, she was - and is - a poet and...

134: James Baldwin & The Fire Next Time

2/3/2021
Today we launch the annual observance of Black History Month. And this year we will be focusing on some of the literary works that have inspired different movements towards Black equality. One of the most timely and well-known books written in the last century was the Black manifesto, The Fire Next Time. Written by the queer, civil rights activist James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time stirred the nation and fanned the flames of a Black revolution well in progress. And while there were dozens of...

133: Ellen DeGeneres

1/27/2021
For nearly a quarter of a century, Ellen has been an open advocate for LGBTQ rights and lived her own queer life openly even when it cost her dearly. Her humor and desire to spread good in the world has allowed her to enter the homes of even the most staunch anti-LGBTQ critics. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/yourqueerstory/message

132: James Buchanan the (Other) Worst President

1/21/2021
Born in Pennsylvania in April of 1791, James enjoyed life as the wealthiest boy in town. His father was an immigrant who came to America just a few years earlier and soon made his wealth in agriculture and real estate. The young heir went off to Dickinson College and, perhaps due to his arrogance or mere young mischief, was nearly expelled twice. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/yourqueerstory/message

129: History of Medicine & Queers

12/16/2020
Today we celebrate and recognize the 47th anniversary of homosexuality being delisted as a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association. Of course, there was and continues to be much work to be done for the LGBTQ+ in relation to the field of medicine. However, today we want to focus on the wins over the last century and how our movement went from a group of so-called insane, sexual deviants, to a thriving, openly queer revolution. And as we look back on this year and the...

128: George Michael & Last Christmas

12/9/2020
As we move full-force into the Holiday season, we can’t go another minute without recognizing one of the most popular songs of the holiday - and the man behind it. For the last 26 years, the song Last Christmas has remained a consistent, holiday favorite, continuing to top the charts again and again through the month of December. Part of this is due to the unique style of the song; which tells the sad story of unrequited love, while jamming away to a smooth, almost happy, electric beat....

127: ACT UP

12/2/2020
Today, in honor of World AIDS Day on December 1st, we want to recognize and honor a group that was fundamentally responsible for changing the tide on the AIDS crisis. ACT UP, an acronym that stood for AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power, was founded in 1987. At this time, over 40,000 Americans had died of the AIDS crisis and the President had only just acknowledged there was even a pandemic happening. Funding was still obsolete and most doctors couldn’t convince people that this was not a “gay...

126: Queer Coding in Film

11/25/2020
This week we’re talking about a very serious topic, though in a quite light-hearted way. Queer coding is defined as such: The subtextual portrayal of a queer character in the media whose identity is not explicitly confirmed within canon. This concept refers to a character that encapsulates what might be considered "queer traits" that are recognizable to the audience, but are never labeled or claimed by the content creator.

11/18/2020
This week is Transgender Awareness week and it sits in the month of November, which is Native American history month. With all of that in mind, we thought what better person to cover than the newly elected Kansas Representative, Stephanie Byers. Byers is a transgender Native American who is a member of the Chickasaw Nation, currently residing in Kansas.

124: Atlanta, Georgia On My Mind 🍑

11/11/2020
We’ve been meaning to get around to talking about Atlanta for quite some time but have been putting it off until just the right time. Now, the recent election has motivated us to pay tribute to Georgia - and the amazing Stacey Abrams - by celebrating the city known as The Black LGBTQ+ Mecca.

120: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

10/21/2020
Today we’re finally covering a long time queer favorite – Rocky. And if you think we’re talking about a down on his luck, Philadelphia boxer, who constantly walks around with blood running down his face calling out for “Adrian!!!” – well then you’re probably straight and have stumbled upon the wrong podcast. But if you’re queer then there’s only one real Rocky in your horror book. And of course, that’s the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show. With the doom and gloom of the upcoming...

119: Aileen Wuornos

10/14/2020
Today we are finally covering the woman that many have dubbed the “First Female Serial Killer in America”. While this statement is inaccurate and in fact cannot be measured as the term “serial killer” was not even coined until the 1970s, we can say that Aileen was the first notorious female serial killer in American history. Most of this was due to the fact that Aileen’s case came to light just as the country was riding a wave of high profile serial killers. The 1980s saw a peak in serial...
