When you are born, you are immediately born into a community. Whether that’s racial, religious, cultural or geographical, you are born into a community that will tell you your history and stories…unless you’re LGBTQ.
We grow up, and realise we are other, and have to find our community for ourselves. Nobody writes down our history, nobody preserves our folk-tales. We’re told we’ve achieved full legal equality…but why are we still ‘other’?
Qmmunity podcast will ask questions of ourselves, explore who we are, as a community, as individuals, where we have come from, how we’ve changed and developed and what the future may hold for us. Along the way, we will seek to record and preserve the LGBTQ mythology and folklore for future generations to understand where we’ve come from, how we’ve got here…and where we belong in our Qmmunity.
