Family, it’s your favorite queer radio personality Anna DeShawn with our queer news for today.
The news continues that I am still on break but I’ll be back next week with our normal lineup queer news stories to share. But I do have a question for you. I would like to start a Queer News tip line. A spot where you all can leave us voice notes about Queer News stories happening that you think we should cover. What do you think? I’ve posted a video on TikTok, IG, & FB about it. Comment and tell me what you think. We want to cover the most important stories and we know our sources are great but you all are our source too. We want to hear from you so let me know what you think.
Also, I must tell you our first Qube Original podcast “Black HIV in the South: How Did We Get Here? It’s good. Like really good. Powerful stories and the team is just brilliant. Latrice Sampson Richards of STS Productions & Dae Williams of Birden Mack Creative Studio. I am praying that it has the impact I believe it can have in educating us and raising awareness about the crisis that is Black HIV in the South. This podcast is set to drop on Tuesday, February 7th which is also National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. So, this week we are doing a feed swap with the Grown Up podcast.
The Grown Up podcast is hosted by the homie Derric and he talks about how life growing up is complicated, tough, and sometimes feels like you aren’t doing your best. On the Grown Up podcast he talks about everything from mental health to relationships to his own life journey discovering his true self. I was honored to join him on his last episode of 2022 as well. We talked about my work and all that good stuff. I hope you learn a little bit more about me and get to know Derric as well.
If you enjoy the show please tell a friend about queer news and if you really dig it please join the QCrew and become a monthly subscriber. You can check the link in the show notes. In the show notes you’ll also find links to follow Derric & his pod. I mean you should do that too. I will be back on next week okay and until then enjoy the Grown Up podcast
Thank you Grown Up family for the fantastic year we have had! I want to end it off on a positive note celebrating independence. Technically she should be apart of the N.O.W segment because she is definitely making waves in her lane. On today’s episode I invited the incredible Anna DeShawn to join me so I can celebrate her for the incredible work she does. We talked about how her broadcasting journey started, what keeps her motivated, and we celebrate her online independent radio station E3 Radio as well as the new app launching soon The Qube! Make sure to check out Anna, E3 Radio, and The Qube on all social platforms but most importantly tune in to get the latest on Queer news. We have to support each other especially when we have an important platform that talks about important relevant news just like any other news station. Happy New Year! Make sure to stay tuned for more N.O.W artist in 2023 and remember to always stay safe and be kind!
