Words: Steve Brown
The UK's first podcast dedicated to LGBTQ parenting is set to go live on March 2.
Some Families is produced by Storyhunter and distributed by Acast, will break down queer parenting myths, share funny, emotional and true stories from the LGBTQ community and answer questions for those thinking about parenthood.
The podcast will be hosted by lesbian mum Lotte Jeffs, an author, journalist and reformed magazine editor, and gay dad Stu Oakley a film publicist who thought he was used to dealing with divas until he had toddlers.
“I’m thrilled to be hosting Some Families with Stu” says co-host Lotte Jeffs.
“There’s so little information available to LGBTQ+ people thinking about starting a family, hopefully by sharing our own stories and listening to others’ we’ll give people contemplating becoming or in the middle of being a parent some encouragement, support and perspective.”
“Every family is so unique and as queer parents there are so many different journeys we can go on to build our families” added co-host Stu Oakley.
“I am beyond excited to explore this world with Lotte and to listen, share and discover more from some truly inspirational people.”
Some Families will cover all aspects of real queer families from donor conception, adoption, surrogacy, being the gay dads at mother and baby groups, two mums on mother’s day.
Episode one will be available across all major podcast platforms from March 2.
