Queer History Podcasts for Becoming a Better Ally

As an editor of the Her Campus American University podcast, Miss Education, I have developed a mild addiction to browsing through Apple Podcasts whenever I find free time. After pride month this past summer, I decided to subscribe to more shows dedicated to LGBTQ history in order to educate myself on a community that I was never taught about in my high school history courses. Here is a list of my favorite podcasts and individual episodes from each to deepen your understanding of queer people across the world and throughout time.
