"It was a great privilege to be gay, otherwise I'd probably be very boring and unhappy and unexamined." John Cameron Mitchell talks about the evolving legacy of Hedwig And The Angry Inch, why Hedwig is not a trans character, and how growing up queer teaches you empathy. "Empathy comes from being an outsider." LGBTQ&A is hosted by Jeffrey Masters and produced by Neon Hum Media and The Advocate. Check out advocate.com for more.  https://www.advocate.com
Ryan O'Connell didn't come out of "the disability closet" until he was 28. He writes about life as a queer person with Cerebral Palsy on the new Netflix show, Special, and talks with Jeffrey Masters about why people shouldn't be afraid to talk about sex work. 
Amiyah Scott talks about discovering the ballroom scene in Atlanta after Hurricane Katrina forced her to leave New Orleans. "Balls were created to not only be a safe space, but to celebrate the community. We weren't being celebrated, so we decided to celebrate ourselves." Amiyah also talks about the challenges of playing a trans character on the TV show, Star, who is going through so many of the same things she's gone through in life. Hosted by Jeffrey Masters.
Roxane Gay talks about why it's so difficult to write about love, and says that when it comes to writing about her own relationships, she doesn't do it. She prefers to keep "the best parts" of her life private. Roxane also talks with host, Jeffrey Masters, about being a "soft butch", her place in the queer canon, and her top-secret Channing Tatum project. 
Pete Buttigieg takes a break from the campaign trail to talk with Jeffrey Masters about his history-making candidacy, serving in the Navy under Don't Ask, Don't Tell, fighting climate change, and the most millennial thing ever: meeting his husband on a dating app.

I think this podcast is really great, but I'm disappointed to hear that it will be exclusively behind a paywall on Luminary soon. I'm afraid I won't be joining you on the new platform.

Great episode. I love your podcast anyway but Mary Lambert was so open and vulnerable but in an empowered way that I was very moved. I am also a Christian and member of the LGBTQIA+, as well as the mom of a transwoman. I think it is important for people who are not "evangelical" to start being seen and heard. We also exist and we need to help heal the wounds of those who have been abused, abandoned, and disowned by their families and churches in the name of "Christianity". There is nothing Christian about pushing the community aside.

I absolutely love Ali. I have always been attracted to "the butch" women so when she is talking about how she saw herself in the character of Jo from Facts of Life I smiled because Jo was my first girl crush, many years before I knew that I was crushing. I was like 8 when the AIDS crisis hit and I remember the fear that was going through the country. Thank you for this podcast, I hope you continue
