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 podcast was created by lesbian actress, singer/songwriter, producer, and podcaster Jasmin Savoy Brown (she/her, The Leftovers, Yellowjackets, new Scream reboot), who is also currently recording her first EP. She co-hosts the show with nonbinary actor, comic, and playwright Liv Hewson (they/them, Santa Clarita Diet, Yellowjackets, Let It Snow, Bombshell).
The duo cheekily discuss, in the trailer for the podcast, what is actually on the gay agenda for the day smiling saying,
“listen to Montero for the 600th time.”
“go to brunch at 3.”
“we also have our new podcast ‘the gay agenda’ brought to you by MOST, Netflix’s home for lLGBTQ+ storytelling.”
The synopsis of the show also says,
“On the show, Brown and Hewson interview queer trailblazers in the community and explore the wonderful, funny (and sometimes ridiculous) parts of the LGBTQ+ experience. Guests include Bex Taylor-Klaus, Natalie Morales, Ally Beardsley, Javicia Leslie, Caleb Hearon, Carmen Maria Machado, Leo Shang and Fortune Fiemster. ”
