Call Me Mother, hosted by Shon Faye is set to return for its second season from 24 June.
The podcast is an archive for members of the LGBTQ+ community who have something important, interesting, or enlightening to say about what it means to be queer in the world today.
Season one was named among Apple’s ‘Best of 2021’.
Host Shon Faye is a writer, Oxford grad, editor, journalist, and activist known for her commentary on LGBTQ+, women’s, and mental health issues.
Season two will place a new emphasis on connecting with a younger generation of the queer community, providing listeners the language needed to grapple with unfamiliar experiences, and demonstrating that they belong to a much broader history.
Voices and histories from across the globe will feature, including Donna Persona of San Francisco’s Compton Cafeteria; the UK’s Lisa Power, co-founder of Stonewall and decades-long activist; Zsa Zsa Fisher, a South African Trans rights worker and former Miss Gay SA; founder of Nigeria’s House of Rainbow, Jide Macaulay, and many more.
Call Me Mother is made by Novel, the largest independent podcast production company in Europe, and will be available on all podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
