Queering Desi is a podcast that celebrates the unique experiences of South Asian LGBTQ+ people. Each week, a guest will chat with long-time community activist, writer, and Brown Girl editor Priya Arora, about their journey, their work, and what it means to be true to who you are.
To help us share our stories in our own words, and take the burden of representation off each individual, this podcast aims to be a breeding ground for discussion and a platform for being loud and proud, no matter who you are!
In this first episode, Priya chats with her partner, Reema, about why she’s starting ‘Queering Desi’ and what the audience can expect from upcoming episodes. They also share their coming out journeys, and later, they play games like “Be In or Be Them” and “Date, Marry, Kill.” Priya finds out Reema didn’t know who Oprah was until recently, and the two make difficult decisions about their celebrity crushes.
