Do You Queer What I Queer?

ABOUT THIS PODCAST

Do you queer what I queer? Likely not- depending on what you're tuned in to- if you're tuned in at all. Join us on our Toronto-based podcast with hosts super dumb, super queer Elliott and Thom. #DYQWIQ serves as a platform for diverse voices of politics and human interest in the LGBTQ community to educate, entertain, and expand world-views of listeners. Sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes ridiculous, always relevant, DYQWIQ fumbles through the messy world of identity politics as we broaden the collective perspective of the LGBTQ community
