Netflix Launches LGBTQ Podcast ‘The Gay Agenda’

Netflix has launched “The Gay Agenda,” a new podcast that will look at the lives of LGBTQ+ creatives at the top of their fields across different industries.

The goal, the streaming service says, is to be celebratory, championing success stories “through a loving and humorous lens.”

The podcast is created by lesbian actress, singer/songwriter and podcaster Jasmin Savoy Brown, who appears in the buzzy new hit “Yellowjackets” and the upcoming “Scream” reboot. She co-hosts the show with producer and nonbinary actor, comic and playwright Liv Hewson, a co-star on “Yellowjackets” where the pair play two teenage members of a soccer team who are stranded in the wilderness together, a turn of events that severely tests their romantic relationship. Hewson has also appeared in the Netflix series “Santa Clarita Diet.” Their credits also include “Bombshell” and “Let It Snow.” On the new podcast, Brown and Hewson interview queer trailblazers in the community.

“The Gay Agenda” marks the company’s first LGBTQ+ podcast and comes as Netflix has moved much more aggressively into the audio space. Netflix has launched over 40 podcasts since it formed a division devoted to the medium in 2018. Some shows are focused on augmenting Netflix content such as “The Crown,” but there are also a number of wholly original productions. These include “Okay, Now Listen,” a podcast that focuses on “Black joy” through an often humorous lens and “Strong Black Legends,” which honors the best of Black Hollywood, as well as “You Can’t Make This Up,” a companion series to Netflix’s extensive roster of true crime stories.

“The Gay Agenda” will be produced by Most, which is Netflix’s banner for its LGBTQ+ storytelling. The podcast will launch on January 10th, 2022.
