This show has been so helpful for me!
I love the term queer! It makes me feel empowered, connected and whole. It encompasses exactly what I want, without needing to explain more if I don’t have the stamina. I searched for queer sex ed... exactly what I needed. And to go further “to queer the system”... to context useful information to me and allow that information to fit my life and love.
Queer Sex Ed is incredibly thoughtful, funny, and kind. I love it so much, and when I thought to look up those words together, I could’ve never imagined how good the content I’d find would be.
Sub to queer sex ed rn!
This is so much of what I need right now in my life. I wish I had this when I was going through self-exploration as a tween and a teen. These hosts are lovely, insightful and supportive of all of us marginal folx.
Thank you ❤️
Sara and Jay are awesomesauce
Thank you for all that you do for your fellow humans with this podcast. Queer Sex Ed has taught me so much and made me feel less alone. Every episode is excellent, but I especially love Femme. Much love and respect!
