A new LGBT history and storytelling podcast based in Edinburgh hopes to bring queer stories to life through spoken word.
‘Queer Ephemera’ is a project which “cruises the archives for stories from the margins of history” and hopes to bring them to a modern audience.
The podcast is a collaboration between researcher and writer, Keava McMillan, performers Jonathan McLean and Rosa McMillan, with sound design by Rob MacNeacail.
The first season casts a spotlight on lost LGBT spaces and is an international season, with episodes on everything from a lesbian tearoom in prohibition New York to a hidden gay bar in the basement of an East Berlin furniture museum.
The pilot season has been released and can be accessed here, with plans for the future including live shows and a special season for LGBT History Month.
The podcast is also listed on our LGBT Heritage section, which includes resources detailing our rich Scottish history.
