Aclass: Queer Voices — a free workshop for new and aspiring podcasters in the queer community — will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, June 17, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. ET. The event is being hosted by Acast.
During the event, attendees will hear established podcasters with intersecting identities share their experiences building shows and breaking into digital audio as queer creators. They’ll also receive tactical strategies and tips to help create and develop podcasts.
“The world of podcasting is full of creators from different backgrounds, identities, and experiences, but certain communities aren’t afforded the resources and opportunities that others are. Our hope with Aclass is for it to play a part in closing that gap,” said Veronika Taylor, Content Director at Acast. “Queer creators in particular have experiences that are often left out of the conversation. Aclass: Queer Voices aims to provide a specific space for queer storytellers to learn and share.”
Aclass: Queer Voices will feature two sessions:
- PANEL: Storytelling and Identity: Finding your voice through podcasting. Featuring special guests Aida Osman of Keep It!, Jake Anthony and Matt Marr of 90 Day Gays, and Tuck Woodstock of Gender Reveal. Moderated by Dino-Ray Ramos, Associate Editor at Deadline and co-host of Deadline’s New Hollywood podcast.
- PRESENTATION: How to Launch and Grow a Podcast. Hosted by the Acast content partnerships team, on how to develop a show and audience and build an engaged fan base. Featuring insights from the team’s work with thousands of podcasters and shows across multiple genres and countries.
