Podcasts to Celebrate Pride Month 2019

Pride month 2019 Podbean

Pride Month is celebrated each year in June. All over the world, various events are held during the month as a way of recognizing the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world. June was chosen to mark the historic Stonewall Riots that happened in 1969. These riots were prompted by a raid that took place during the early morning, at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. The LGBT community held a series of demonstrations to protest the raid and calling for the establishment of places that gays and lesbians could go and safely be open about their sexual orientation.

Since that time, much has changed. Yet, along with the celebration, Pride month is an opportunity to peacefully protest and raise awareness of the continued/current issues facing the community.

In honor of Pride Month 2019, Podbean has selected some podcasts representing diverse voices. Some of these podcasts explore intimate coming-out stories and may discuss topics like commitment and relationships, talking to family members, and dealing with bias. Others address viewpoints on gender equality and gay marriage, while a few of the podcasts just have fun and laugh at the latest pop culture trends or explore life.

You can find this topic featured in the Podbean app to listen on the go. If you don’t already have the Podbean app, download it for free in the App Store or Google Play store. It’s the best way to listen and discover new podcasts you’ll love, with recommendations of hot topics plus personalized recommendations based on what you listen to most.
