GROUND-BREAKING QUEER ARTS SHOW LAUNCHES Autumn 2022
Queer I Am the Podcast, the podcast that celebrates Queer Artists and Queer Allies is proud to release season 2 of the hit podcast. Season 2 features 20 incredible new guests from all the arts and features writer such as SJ Watson (Before I go to Sleep), Bethan Roberts, author of the novel My Policeman, now a film starring Harry Styles and Emma Corin, and Nathaniel J Hall, writer and actor (It’s A Sin).
Queer I Am S2 follows its break-out successful first series that has been downloaded in more than thirty-five countries. The show celebrates Queer Artists and Queer Allies, their craft and the story behind their success. It talks about the beautiful queer community, discusses the power of having allies inside and outside of the community, and the roles that sexuality and gender identity play in the creation of art.
Hosted by Andrew Flewitt, a Voice Artist based in the city of Brighton and Hove. Andrew moved to the city in 2021 and was blown away by the sense of community having lived in a rural county for most of their life. By seeing queer artists perform in local venues, talking to queer siblings in the community and opening a dialogue about what is it is like to be a queer person growing up and finding their way in the world, the idea for the podcast was born and development started early 2022.
Andrew Flewitt, Founder, said, “‘Queer culture is incredibly important to me as a Queer person and I think it is crucial to keep the conversation going, and learn from each other’s experiences. People who do not identify within the Queer community will also get so much from these conversations, because when it comes down to it, it is all about celebrating and accepting who we are as people, our uniqueness and what we contribute to the world. Making this podcast has been a joy! I’m incredibly proud that Season 1 has been downloaded in 24 countries and is being listened to in countries where queer rights do not exist; The power of making this art and keeping the conversation going has never been more important.”
