as mentioned before, we appreciate it if people use “please” and “thank you” when sending us messages.
But, alas, since I planned on doing another list of podcasts with LGBTQ+ characters anyways, here you go! Please be aware that not all of these put a huge focus on the queer relationship. Some do though ^__^)
Welcome to Night Vale (though I don’t think I have to recommend that one anymore, right?)
(Since you asked specifically for canon queer relationships, I only listed those where there is at least one canon queer pairing, and not just a character expressing attraction to someone of the same gender.)
I’m pretty sure there are plenty more, but I haven’t listened to them yet, so I can’t recommend them at the moment. Also, sorry about not including links and brief descriptions like I usually do, but I’m so so tired.
April 2, 2016: Husky Boys’ Dickies, Jill McDonough
Husky Boys’ Dickies Jill McDonough
WTF texts Josey, and I text back OMG. We had to tell Maggie what LOL meant– it’s not Lots Of Love, though that almost always fits. Major emailed LMAO when I assumed his inbox gets dealt with by an underling, some undergrad, assumed it was Major’s minor who invited me to read but “can not pay much sum of monies.” Sum of Monies? I emailed back.
Who wrote this? Your assistant’s a Nigerian prince? WTF. For a while we just played with these, joking, like I tried on Wicked when I moved to Boston, called Lisa Liser, pizza pizzer, said Fucken, wicked, pissah, dood. But before you know it, it’s part of how you talk, how I talk, fucken guy. Dude. When my ex
student saw me she said Sick a dozen times, amazed, delighted, meant it’s super I’ve moved back, and, whoda thunk it, come in to her cafe. She checked out Josey, my instant street cred. Josey bought new pants for work with a cell phone pocket; the cell phone pocket pants are Husky Boys’ Dickies, which I can’t get enough of, laugh every time
I think of them, or try to name them out loud. Josey wears Husky Boys’ Dickies. My darling, my husky, my husky little boy. Hey, Husky, we say, around the house, just waking up, just bumping into each other en route from basement to garden to kitchen. Hey, Husky, do you want coffee? Hey Husky, Hey Bunny, Hey Hon.
When I’m helping my students translate Sappho’s Fragments 1 and 31, I get them to make a list of many-colored things, so they don’t feel stuck with colorful throne. One girl can’t think of anything but Skittles. Terrific, I tell her, you’re breaking product placement ground. Then I ask them to think of voices they love, the voice of someone they love. It’s hard to describe a voice, but
I ask them each to try, put his or her beloved in the place of Sappho’s, make her theirs, more real than just sweet-voiced and lovely-laughtered. You have three minutes. Get something down, I tell them, some adjective or comparison, even if you just write the same word over and over again. 5:47 p.m. on a Wednesday, me saying Do your best and You could just say husky husky husky husky husky.
I’m Noah, an illustration student at Lesley and an (aspiring) arts organizer. I’m also a trans man in a gay relationship. My friend Boon and I are curating an LGBTQ art show to submit as a proposal to Boston LGBTQIA Artists Alliance (BLAA), in response to their call for show proposals.
We’re looking for trans and queer artists who are interested in exhibiting their work with us here in Boston this summer or fall. Please message me or email if you’re interested!
We’ve assembled a lineup of artists, our proposal has been accepted, and we now have a location and a rough date!
We’ll be exhibiting at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston this November (2017.) Our show is titled Sanqtuary. At this point, we are still open to adding a few more artists, but we have very limited space. We are prioritizing femme-identified artists and local Massachusetts artists.
I’ll be posting updates on Sanqtuary here and on instagram @ngrigni. Come out and support us in November!
