Abstract
This creative thesis is a podcast that focuses on issue in the LGBTQ community. The host interviewed queer individuals with different identities and observed major historical events in the queer community and how those affected Middle Tennessee. The idea of making a podcast surrounding Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community and topics within the subculture is important because some young adults do not have an outlet that shares that they are not alone in their queer journey. An outlet is not only important for their journey, but it is also crucial in supporting their mental health. Podcasts are particularly useful in reaching the LGBTQ community because of the mobile apps.
