  • Queer Quarks

    Queer Quarks is a talk and music show which exam­ines news, his­to­ry, cul­ture and cur­rent events through a queer lens. Host­ed by Ley Fras­er (they/​them).

    The goals of the show include show­cas­ing artists and cre­ators who are part of minori­tized gen­ders and/​or sex­u­al­i­ties (‘2SLGBTQIA+ peo­ple’) and dis­cussing how events around the world affect queer com­mu­ni­ties. Often the lat­ter top­ic includes mis­treat­ment and vio­lence; trig­ger warn­ings are pro­vid­ed but lis­ten with care. This is an acces­si­ble show, where aca­d­e­m­ic top­ics will be bro­ken down into plain lan­guage intend­ed to be prac­ti­cal­ly use­ful. Think crit­i­cal­ly about the issues, check out source mate­ri­als, lis­ten to mar­gin­al­ized groups about their own expe­ri­ences and respect the every­one around you.
