We’ve officially launched into the most magical time of the year and even though this year will look a lot different than usual, we can still make June as queer as possible. In order to honor the struggles of those before us, we will be covering some grim yet necessary parts of our LGBTQ+ History this month. Before we explore the pain and struggles of our people, we want to start off with a celebration of the music and anthems that have marched us through our darkest times.
Today’s episode drops just 5 days before the launch of Pride Month. That special time of year that rejuvenates us with hope, confidence, and glitter. One of the best parts about Pride today is that so many companies and organizations show their open support online, in their media, and through rainbows plastered on the front of their merchandise. While we certainly enjoy the stand of solidarity, often these gestures come across as hollow. Specifically when one examines the LGBTQ+ diversity, or lack of queer diversity and inclusivity, adopted within these companies. So today we want to discuss how to keep the Pride going long after the last sparkler fades.
Today we’re doing an unscripted episode on the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. We know there’s a lot of information out there and no doubt many of our listeners are tired of hearing about the epidemic. However, it is important that we address the fast-spreading virus. We want to encourage those quarantined indoors, calm some of the fears out there, as well as provide caution to those who still have to interact with the general public. So here’s some facts, myths, and general tips about COVID-19.
