I used to feel that podcasting was dominated by the straight male voice, with everything seeming to come back to three guys in a room, sitting around a microphone and talking over each other. Luckily, that no longer feels the case, with a brilliant crop of British LGBTQ+ podcasts and radio series offering new points of view. From the history of the gay rights movement in the UK to interviews with the most importantactivists and advocates, there's plenty of material out there to pique your interest.
The great thing about podcasts is thatthey'rehere for us in all our moments of need. Maybe you're looking for something interesting to listen to on your morning commute to work. Perhaps you want to take a break from your screen for a few hours, or maybe you need a distraction as you finish the last few kilometres on the treadmill. Interestingly, according to clinical psychologist Dr. Christopher Friesen, the latter is one of the best times to tune in, because increased brain activity when exercising means lots of cognitive space becomes available for absorbing new information.
Whatever your hour of need, this list will provide you with lots of options to keep you occupied. Also, all of these podcasts are recorded in Britain, and platform some of the most interesting LGBTQ+ voices from all over the country, offering a more familiar view point than those offered by the our American counterparts. So, grab your headphones and get ready to dive in, because here is the cream of the crop of British LGBTQ+ podcasts.
