A Hilarious Look into Queer History
I was recommended ‘History is Gay’ by a friend, and I’m hooked! I’ve already listened to the episode twice now, and it stands up as a hilarious, informative, and actually encouraging look at just how queer history has always been, even when society has tried to ignore the LGBT+ community’s existence. These peeps do a great job laying out the facts without it becoming a boring history lesson, giving us enough historical context to understand what we need to for the queer lives they’re exploring to make sense. The jokes hit home, and had me genuinely laughing in public. I can’t wait to see what topic they tackle next!

Informative and funny look into Queer History
I found the podcast through a tumblr post and I am more than pleased that I stopped to listen. I've listened to the episode a couple of times now and I've enjoyed both times that I've listened to it.
I'm not normally good at listening to podcasts without getting bored or missing information but this kept me interested from the first word to the very last. I learned new things about pirates that I've read about before and loved. I can't wait for future episodes
