Monkeypox: Just What The Pox is going on?
This is just episode one, of QueerAF's new podcast about Monkeypox. it has stories and resources without shame or stigma - "It's what I wish I'd had." Listen to the whole series by searching 'What The Pox?'... Monkeypox. That’s what What The Pox? is all about - a ‘poxcast’ if you will. Quite a lot of people have got it or had it at this point. I’m one of them. And it was not fun. When I was home alone with Monkeypox in all kinds of pain, feeling scared and alone I had very little information. So I went online to find help. And guess what? There wasn’t much official advice. But I did start talking to all kinds of people: experts, people who’ve had the virus, and to those who see this outbreak as part of a much bigger picture. We’ve spoken to those on the frontline of the response, and trying to understand this virus, including at 56 Dean Street, NAM Aidsmap, Prepster, Love Tank, London School of Hygine and Tropical Medicine and many more. It features contributors from the UK and US. What The Pox is the information and support I wish I had at my disposal when I was going through Monkeypox. Monkeypox is spreading worldwide - and for many of us queer people, the response feels a bit too familiar. You see history rarely repeats - but it often rhymes. Tune in to steal our insight on this virus, what it means for our community and how we should handle it. Together, let's work out just What The Pox? is going on? Listen to understand: What we know about the virus, and how it spreads Why we feel shame and stigma about catching it What the parallels are with the HIV outbreak in the 80s Why this sits in a bigger picture with conversations about queer sex and health inequalities And crucially: What can we do next? Because before you start listening: I’ll let you in on a secret - we have the tools to manage this outbreak; we’ve just got to use them. It comes out every Wednesday, or you can sign up to support our show - and unlock all the episodes as soon as they are ready in the archive coming soon below. The first episode is out 7 Sep, 2022. Let's keep the conversation frank, honest, open and alive. Because, to borrow a phrase, silence = pox. Hosted by me, Martin Joseph, an award-winning podcaster and comedian. What The Pox? is a QueerAF production. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

The media is failing queer people: This is how to change it
Can we tell you how to change the way the media writes about queer lives? It’s a change we need urgently. From transphobia led by the press, media getting it wrong and regulator Ofcom and the BBC signalling, queer lives are up for debate. It’s a growing pattern that is spilling out onto the streets in the form of rising hate crimes. It’s time for an organisation to fight back. To advocate for us in the media. To show change is possible by commissioning and then supporting the voices who are too often left behind. Meet QueerAF, our new community interest company that builds on the previous work we've done here as an award-winning podcast. Find out how we're going to launch the careers of LGBTQIA+ emerging creatives - with a platform funding content, creatives and mentoring for people from marginalised queer identities - bring back the podcast. And show change in the media is possible. Or, make it possible. Join us here: https://www.wearequeeraf.com/podcastoffer/ Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

How can you be single, queer and happy?
How can you be single, queer and happy? Growing up in the 90’s things seemed pretty simple. You get to your mid-twenties, find someone you are attracted to who lives in close proximity, get married and live a happy life. But Martin could never relate to any of this because he is gay. Cut to now, aged 32 and a little jaded by love – he has no desire for marriage or a partner. But can he still be happy? On today's episode of #QueerAF, he goes on a journey to find happiness and comfort in being single...

A Gay and a Non Gay douche to say LGBT+ rights
A Gay and Non Gay discuss douching (to help LGBT+ rights) James Barr and Dan Hudson host the hit UK LGBT+ podcast A Gay and a Non Gay, which began out of terrible conversation about pub etiquette. But their friendship really grew when their worlds collided, as Talia, Dan’s girlfriend and James’s friend, left for the USA; Leaving James and Dan to fend for themselves with just one task, to make a podcast. But when we say their worlds collided, we're not talking about the dynamic duo life making a podcast in their girlfriend’s absence. We're talking about the queer and straight world meeting head on. So on this week’s #QueerAF we ask: do we need straight allies to get the queer equality we both crave and demand? Plus we see what happens when hetero and homo crash together in a beautiful melee of rainbows, pints and douching. Big thanks to the podcast A Gay and a Non Gay for this week's show.

Russia doesn't want you to listen to this podcast
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is one of Russia’s most iconic cultural figures, but the country still denies he was gay. 125 years after his mysterious death, his magnificent symphonies, operas, and ballets – including all-time classics Swan Lake and The Nutcracker – are still performed, streamed and enjoyed by millions of people around the world. But behind Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous melodies and explosive orchestral climaxes lies the complicated story of a gay man. His sexuality brought him both joy and despair, but it was largely tolerated within Tchaikovsky’s social circles. Now his country outright denies that he was gay, bans so-called ‘gay propaganda’ and continues to torture LGBT+ people in the region of Chechnya. So is now more important celebrate Russia’s rich queer history?

Did you make all your Sims gay too? | A brief queer history of gaming
Did you make all your Sims gay too? This week on #QueerAF, reporter Alice Taplin brings us along on a ride down the Rainbow Road, not on Mario Kart, but on a brief history of queer gaming. Video games were long considered the territory of straight boys and men, with COD, Fifa, and GTA being the first thing that sprung to people’s imaginations. But with representation across the board having made rapid improvements and the creation of Steam making way for indie games, now everybody and their mum is playing some form of video game. So what does that mean for LGBT+ gay(mers)? We find out. With thanks to producer Alice Taplin (@alicetaplinish) and guest Chris Fox from Gaymers Inc for guiding us through this week's episode.

Ian McKellen's advice to LGBT+ people everywhere | Live record with guest host Evan Davis
National Student Pride's ambassador Evan Davis guest hosts the show and interviews LGBT+ Icon Ian McKellen on the #StudentPride podcast at National Student Pride 2019. 🦄 Subscribe: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/queeraf-by-national-student-pride/id1126301158?mt=2 🎧 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3wiN3JZBJ2uqcg3R0OQDqP Evan Davis interviewed Ian McKellen on the #QueerAF podcast at National Student Pride 2019 at the University of Westminster, discussing his lifetime achievements and relationship with the LGBT community. They spoke about #MeToo, chemsex, drugs, his coming out, the #MeToo movement and empowered the young LGBT+ audience. The event took place on February 23rd at the non-profit organizations, now five-year-long residency, Westminster Marylebone campus. Davis and McKellen hosted a live-stream of #QueerAF the National Student Pride podcast. In conversation, McKellen proposed to Evan Davis they speak about chemsex. Otherwise known as getting high and horny or party and play – those who take part in chemsex do so to change the sex they are having with a so-called ‘holy trinity’ of drugs. McKellen spoke about when he first tried a joint at the age of 30, with Evan Davis adding that ‘drugs were much weaker back then’. The audience at National Student Pride were enthralled by Ian with his re-tellings of his pursuits to join the theatre as “one of the reasons I became a professional actor is because I learned that I could meet queers in the British theatre” and admitting “I just wish when I was younger I could have been myself”. McKellen got many a laugh with his unrelenting wit, gesticulating at one point about “drawings of genitalia in public bathrooms”. The conversation also looked at various aspects of McKellen's life: - His coming out story - How Margaret Thatcher’s Section 28 Law made him the activist he is today and how the queer scene in the theatre was what first attracted him to the profession - His advice to young LGBT+ students - Holding Elijah Wood’s hand while he got a tattoo during the filming of Lord of the Rings - The #MeToo movement On Me Too he says: 'Well frankly, I’m waiting for someone to accuse me of something, and me wondering whether they’re not telling the truth and me having forgotten (pointing to his head) you know. But with the couple of names you’ve mention, people I’ve worked with, both of them were in the closet. And hence all their problems as people and their relationships with other people, if they had been able to be open about themselves and their desires, they wouldn’t have started abusing people in the way they’ve been accused. Whether they should be forced to stop working. That’s debatable. I rather think that’s up to the public. Do you want to see someone who has been accused of something that you don’t approve of again? If the answer’s no, then you won’t buy a ticket, you won’t turn on the television. But there may be others for who that’s not a consideration. And it’s difficult to be exactly black and white.' He has since released this statement about the comments: https://twitter.com/IanMcKellen/status/1101741037083455488 Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
