History is Gay is a podcast that examines the underappreciated and overlooked queer ladies, gents, and gentle-enbies that have always been there in the unexplored corners of history. Because history has never been as straight as you think.

Hello queerlings! We're so so so happy that you enjoy our podcast, and THANK YOU for listening! We truly love doing this show and are so thrilled to share with you the exciting things we discover week after week.  But we need your help! History is Gay is a labor of love, and we have big plans for the future of the show, and it also takes a lot of work and some costs to produce!

Why Patreon?

With support from our listeners, we hopefully will be able to offset operating costs (website and media hosting, equipment costs, purchasing research materials), upgrade our equipment, travel to conventions/conferences for live shows, and be able to get better, more in-depth sources that are out of our reach because of pay-walls!

What Do I Get as a Patron?

We want to create a fun community for you here on Patreon, and give back to you for your support! We plan to post behind-the-scenes goodies, bloopers and outtakes, and depending on contribution tiers, opportunities to participate in the show, whether by voting for episode topics, submitting your own stories for special minisodes, or getting the opportunity to be featured on the podcast as a guest!

At whatever level you are able to contribute, we hope you'll continue enjoying History is Gay, and welcome to our Patreon family!

As always, stay queer and stay curious,

Leigh and Gretchen
