About Matt Baume

Hi there! I'm Matt. With your support on Patreon, I make LGBTQ videos, livestreams, and podcasts to empower and uplift queer folks, including:

  • Culture Cruise YouTube videos exploring amazing queer milestones in TV shows and movies!
  • The Sewers of Paris, a podcast where queer folks share intimate, personal stories about the entertainment that made them who they are today!
  • Twice-monthly livestreams where we get together and chat with special guests about the books, movies, music, and shows that we love right now. Trade recommendations, discover new favorites, and make friends!
  • Cozy Pants, a fun friendly Patreon-exclusive podcast, featuring me and my partner James chatting about entertainment that we’re into, as well as recommendations sent in by listeners. Join us for a fun affectionate chat about our favorite cultural comforts!
Your backing makes it possible for me to dedicate myself to making videos, livestreams, and podcasts for you and thousands of other folks. And I can’t wait to send you special backer rewards like early access, personal shoutouts, and care packages!

Here's a full description of the rewards that you get in each tier:
  • $2/month: Friend of Dorothy! Every month, you’ll get an exclusive Patrons-only video update in which I’ll show you what I’m working on, give you a sneak peek at what to expect in the coming weeks, and share some of the fun, weird, and surprising materials that I’ve unearthed as I make new videos and podcasts. You’ll also get access to the patron-exclusive Cozy Pants podcast, featuring fun personal chats with me and my partner James about the entertainment that’s bringing us joy right now.
  • $5/month: Dash of Lavender! Your name will appear at the end of each new Culture Cruise video. You’ll also get the video updates and behind-the-scenes material from the $2 tier.
  • $10/month: Hint of Mint! You’ll get early ad-free access to all new Culture Cruise videos, via an exclusive Patron-only link. Plus you’ll get all the rewards of the previous tiers.
  • $20/month: Artistically Inclined! Join at this level and you’ll get a nice big care package in the mail, complete with a postcard, stickers, 1” buttons, a Culture Cruise temporary tattoo, and a bookmark celebrating a queer cultural icon. You’ll also get an official Culture Crew membership card and a jaunty sailor cap so you can go cruising whenever you want! Plus you get all the rewards of the $2, $5, and $10 tiers.
  • $50/month: Delicate Sensibilities! You’ll get all of the rewards of the previous tiers, plus a little extra! Your care pack in the mail will include a signed paperback copy of my book, Defining Marriage, plus a glamorous signed photograph. And you’ll get a bigger credit at the end of Culture Cruise videos!
Huge thanks for your support, and please keep in touch @mattbaume on Twitter or [email protected].

And as always, croissant, my friends. Croissant.
$500 - reached! per month
I'll add a second livestream every month where we can get together and talk about LGBT issues, entertainment, and whatever's on your mind.
