Podcasts are a great way to feel connected these days, no matter where you are in the world. In addition to the politically and socially “on fire” podcasts out there, easy listening or more light-hearted fare is also proving to be a necessity for surviving more time alone. So, we’ve put together a few LGBTQ podcasts that you should tune into. These funny and informative podcasts, cover everything from news, sports, gayming, LGBTQ history, and more, and can be found on Apple podcasts or your favorite podcast listening platform. Listen and enjoy!
