As part of LGBTQIA+ History Month, we asked some pals over at our Associate Company The Queer House to make a podcast. Hosted by Yaz Zadeh, Pete MacHale and Jennifer Dixon tell us about their work, their influences, and generally just a good old chat about everything queer in this podcast special.
Expect lots of queer facts, bonkers games, and a shout-out to some queer artists who walked so we could run!
We are thrilled to be able to tell you that Pete and Jennifer are set to perform a work in progress sharing of their debut solo shows with the Gate later this year.
Listen here, or on our Soundcloud.
