Outdoors-themed audio by queer/LGBTQIA+ people. Take your ears adventuring.
Issue 05 Side B05/09/2020
As the world went into lockdown, the sounds around us changed. Some people were treated to natural soundscapes of birds, beaches and backyards without interruptions from road and air traffic. Others found themselves sitting alone on balconies or beside windows hoping to catch the breeze. Side B is a reflective, slower paced exploration of local environments at a strange moment in history. Show notes on our website.
Issue 05 Side A14/08/2020
Remember the Before Times? These stories are from back when people were still travelling internationally, gathering in crowds at the drop of a hat and visiting friends without a second thought. Enjoy audio postcards, diaries, conversations, music and sound art from queer folks around the world.
