Episode 8 - Pride

ep8-pride-22.png

How is YouTube censoring trans creators? What’s up with gay dating apps and the concept of anonymity? What is ‘homo-nationalism’ and how are the military and spy agencies encouraging it, despite their past? Our #Pride episode is bursting with knowledge as we talk all things being Queer on the Internet.

There’s a lot of room for our joy too, when we geek out over Queer Eye, Hannah Gadsby, Steven Universe, Sense8, the Getting Curious podcast, and how the web made possible the queer representation that’s making our lives better. Plus: Facebook’s real name policies, pronouns, rainbow-washing and Victorian lesbians.
