Coming out stories from inspiring LGBTQ people today.
New podcast, featuring interviews with engaging, courageous and inspiring LGBTQ+ people around the world, out now.
Welcome to OUTcast, the podcast where we catch up with some of the most engaging, courageous and inspiring LGBTQ+ people from all over the world, and hear their coming out stories.
We ask our lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer guests where their coming out journeys began, what they’ve gone through along the way – the joy and the pain (but we promise there will be more joy) – and what gives them hope.
We all remember when we weren’t out yet as queer people, and in need of strength and inspiration to make the first step being open about who we are. It’s all about having role models and stories we can relate to, ultimately, and we’re hoping to provide those with the stories we tell on OUTcast.
OUTcast will add to the canon of coming out stories already out there on the internet and in art, literature, film and television: stories which hold comforting, empowering and inspiring words that we can relate to.
I’ve shared my coming out story in personal settings, in online articles and through interviews, and as part of LGBTQ+ panels on coming out and being queer at work. And, now, I want to hear other peoples’ stories.
I will be interviewing people from all walks of life, from hardworking queer people behind the scenes, to more familiar faces you might have never known even had the coming out stories they’re about to share.
That’s what OUTcast is all about: me and my guests sharing stories, and creating a space for us all to talk, to listen, and to celebrate being proud queer people in the world today.
– Rosie Pentreath, founder x host of OUTcast Podcast.
