QUEER VOICES

'The Gay Agenda' Web Talk Show Explores LGBT Issues

"The Gay Agenda" is a new web-based talk show in which a panel of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals discuss and deconstruct their own views about the "gay agenda" and what their specific identity means to them.

Hosted by four diverse members of the LGBT community, the talk show also seeks to critique mainstream notions of gay identity and the LGBT movement, and discuss what it means to be a part of the queer community. Tackling pop culture, politics and matters of the heart, the group is made up of a business adviser/film producer, a member of the Chicago improv community, an organizer for far-left progressive issues, and an expert in social media.

"Our vision with 'The Gay Agenda' is to recognize that, in some ways, we are the stereotypes," the show's hosts told The Huffington Post. "We have great fashion sense, or at least our own sense of fashion, we can re-arrange a room in seconds and make everything work, and we can throw a theme party that would put the best school room mothers to shame. But we also push through the obvious boundaries that portray the LGBT community as a monolithic segment of society –- through interviews with political leaders and celebrities, we illuminate the different perspectives on current issues, creating a deeper understanding."

Released earlier this month, the second part of the first episode of "The Gay Agenda" can be viewed above, in which the panel discuss identity, relationships, and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. For more information on "The Gay Agenda," visit the series' website.
