Although "born this way" has become a rallying cry for queers, Simon and Benjamin are pretty sure it's the wrong way to fight for the political change we want. But when you feel like you were born this way, what happens when our politics crash headfirst into our experiences?

A new (and very sexually explicit) music video has a lot of queers asking: does this represent me? Benjamin and Simon respond with cries of "respectability politics", and dig into why marriage equality—what else—seems to bring out some pretty awful homophobia in gays everywhere.

Homophobia. It's everywhere! But what happens when we struggle to actually point to examples of it in our day-to-day lives? Simon and Benjamin wonder whether we need to find new ways to talk about homophobia.

Queers is back for 2017, and Benjamin and Simon decide to kick off the year with a serious look at identity politics. After all, if we're going to spend so much time talking about it, we should probably figure out what it means.

It's been a big year! From Safe Schools and the marriage plebiscite to Brexit, Trump and the Orlando shooting, Simon and Benjamin reflect on what's changed for queers in 2016. And almost a year since the podcast started, we take a look at how we're doing so far, and at what comes next.

In late November Simon presented a talk at the Homosexual Histories Conference in Melbourne, organised by the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives. In this recording of his talk, Simon presents research he has been working on for his first book, Sexy Capitalism.

Controversy around sponsorship of the queer festival Midsumma by News Corp gets Benjamin and Simon thinking broadly about what corporate sponsorship means to queer communities. Where and how do we draw the line when it comes to taking money from companies we don't like?

November 21, 2016 01:13 PM PST

The US Presidential Election result has Simon and Benjamin thinking about call-out culture, and wondering what's achieved in social media's violent search for the politically perfect.

The act of coming out is one of the few remaining things queers have in common. Reflecting on their own coming-out experiences following International Coming Out Day, Benjamin and Simon ask what it means to come out in the age of essential identity.

September 28, 2016 04:33 AM PDT

Community. We talk about it all the time, but what are we actually talking about when we do? Simon and Benjamin try to break down what we mean (or don't) when we say things like "queer community".

step 3:
