Episode 6 – The Future of Queer Media
(Bosi’s Interview with Ondiek + Roundtable Discussion)
(00:33:52) Listen >
Bosi interviews her friend Ondiek about what queer media means to him, the important role it played in shaping his understanding and comfort with queerness, and how queer media brings absurdity to what we think of as normal. The Storyweavers then discuss the public’s tendency to commodify the good parts of queer culture while dismissing the darker aspects of the lived experience of being queer, and how the future of queer media needs to have more queer people at the helm.
