Crossover Episode with The Sewers of Paris!

On today’s episode, we have a special crossover episode for you with one of my favorite podcasts The Sewers of Paris. The Sewers of Paris is a podcast about how queer people’s lives are shaped by our favorite books, movies, music, and shows. So, how could we not have a crossover?

The host is writer, podcaster, and video-maker Matt Baume. He’s been nominated for a GLAAD award for journalism and he created the YouTube pop culture series Culture Cruise and the LGBTQ news shows Weekly Debrief and Marriage News Watch. He is an author with a new book on the way called Hi Honey! I’m Homo!

Matt interviews me about the entertainment that changed my life and I interview Matt about the Queer book that saved his life.
