Hosted by Andrew Flewitt, a Voice Artist based in the city of Brighton and Hove. Andrew moved to the city in 2021 and was blown away by the sense of community having lived in a rural county for most of their life. By seeing queer artists perform in local venues, talking to queer siblings in the community and opening a dialogue about what is it is like to be a queer person growing up and finding their way in the world, the idea for the podcast was born and development started early 2022.

Andrew Flewitt, Founder, told QX, “‘Queer culture is incredibly important to me as a Queer person and I think it is crucial to keep the conversation going, and learn from each other’s experiences. People who do not identify within the Queer community will also get so much from these conversations, because when it comes down to it, it is all about celebrating and accepting who we are as people, our uniqueness and what we contribute to the world. Making this podcast has been a joy! I’m incredibly proud that Season 1 has been downloaded in 24 countries and is being listened to in countries where queer rights do not exist; The power of making this art and keeping the conversation going has never been more important.”

Season 2 has an incredible line up and is a testament to how quickly the following for this podcast has grown. Released as weekly episodes from the 1st October 2022, you can hear conversations with the following artists:
