The Geeks OUT Podcast: State of the Queer
No matter how contentious and divided the world feels—and right now, it certainly feels that way—science ficiton, comics, and general nerdery bring us positive energy. Whether they’re framing the real world in some new, mind-expanding perspective on reality or helping you escape it, being a nerd can be pretty great. And there has never been a better time to be a gay nerd. Join our cross-section of queer geeks as we discuss the current State of Queer across nerdy pop culture—and maybe the larger world of art and fiction—and celebrate where we’ve come, and where we’re going.
