PRIDE

PRIDE

There is no singular LGBTQ experience. A community that celebrates with a rainbow flag deserves a podcast like PRIDE that is beyond labels, uplifting, and willing to have fun. PRIDE host Levi Chambers uses original reporting and interviews to bring you places you couldn’t otherwise experience. Ever wondered what it’s like to be gay in a gang? Did you know Hawaii has a big queer history? Guys, did you know it’s better to sit when you pee? No really! It’s science! There’s all kinds of things about sexuality, gender, and queer history that will surprise you. PRIDE is frank, enlightening and, hey, it’s 2019. So why not get with the times and be part of the conversation we’re having on our new weekly podcast from Straw Hut Media — PRIDE. Levi Chambers and his guests will open your mind, maybe make you laugh, and sometimes pull at your heartstrings as you meet doctors, experts, professionals, and most importantly, people just like you. Or maybe they’re people like your friends and neighbors. Either way, there’s a seat at the table for everyone at PRIDE. We only get better if we’re willing to welcome each other and talk. That’s why we want you to download and listen as you laugh, love, and learn with us. It’s PRIDE. *This podcast is not affiliated with Pride Media.... Show More

Last week, I watched a new documentary on Netflix called Disclosure.

Today on Pride, we talk to Sam Feder, the director of the documentary, and actress and writer Jen Richards, one of the people interviewed. It’s a really powerful film and relevant in ...

Truth be told… There hasn’t been a lot of diversity when it comes to United States presidents. In fact, besides Barack Obama, the position has exclusively gone to older white men. One of those old white men--JFK-- was Catholic and that was a big deal. Another old white guy-- James Buchanan-- was… gay? Maybe. Today we’ll talk about him, his companion, and their relationship in the years just before the Civil War. Dr. Eric Cervini is...
