Thesis On Joan


A podcast dedicated to amplifying voices from the LGBTQ+ community in the New York performing arts scene and examining the industry from a queer perspective! Join fanqueers and theatre professionals Holly (they/them) and Meghan (she/her) as they sit down with groundbreaking theatre folx, from Brooklyn cabaret performers to people backstage and on Broadway. For many queers, theatre has been an escape, this podcast looks to have open conversations on where we’ve come from and where we’re headed as a community, while queering the canon along the way.
