Netflix launched its first LGBT podcast, “The Gay Agenda.”
According to the streaming network, “The new podcast takes an entertaining and honest look into the lives of LGBTQ+ creatives at the top of their fields across different industries and celebrates their success stories in the community through a loving and humorous lens.” The first episode is available and new episodes will be released weekly.
“The Gay Agenda” is created and produced by lesbian actress, singer/songwriter and podcaster Jasmin Savoy Brown (“The Leftovers,” new “Scream” reboot). Her co-host is producer and nonbinary actor, comic and playwright Liv Hewson (“Santa Clarita Diet,” “Yellowjackets,” “Bombshell”).
