A question I see often on social media is, “what podcasts are you listening to?” With a seemingly endless supply of true crime, current events and self-help podcasts out there, there aren’t as many LGBTQ and specifically queer women focused podcasts as one would hope. However, there are some goodies out there if you are willing to take a look.
Queer as Fiction: Amanda Holland, Ashly Perez and Kirsten King also noticed this and created Queer as Fic as a way to celebrate female desire and highlight lesbian, bi and queer women’s stories. So what’s Queer as Fic all about? Amanda, Ashly and Kirsten take suggestions from their listeners and write, then perform their own fanfiction. They also have a wonderfully fun and comfortable banter throughout.
Queer as Fact: This podcast loves lesbian history, and covers all kinds of LGBTQ content from historical figures to films from Ancient Rome to Anne Lister.
