Sexual Transmission Podcast

A podcast for the people.

Queer people, specifically. Join us to talk about topics that concern sex and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Join Blaise Clotworthy and Stef Knight as they explore what it means to be a proud, queer sexual being in 2020. We like to say it's a podcast for the people, queer people specifically.

 

Each episode will highlight a different topic about life in the LGBTQIA+ community, from the history of gay cruising to drag culture and everything in between. Blaise and Stef's relationship as drag daughter and drag mother bring an intergenerational lens to podcast so share with your friends - there's something for all ages here.

Gay Cruising - Public Toilets & Handkerchiefs 

How did gay men find each other before Grindr, Scruff and Squirt?

On this week’s episode of the podcast, we share some of our favourite saucy moments to honour a tradition as old as time - cruising. We also talk with some extra special guests: Mike Binnis, one of the original workers at Lateshift Gay Men’s Club, as well as artist and cruising historian Shaun Thomas McGill.

Whether it’s a walk down memory lane or learning some important queer history, there’s something in this episode for everyone.

Sexual Transmission Ep 03:

HIV Stigma is so 1986

Some things are back in trend like scrunchies and monochrome power suits.. but can we all just agree to leave HIV stigma in the 1980s?

On this episode of Sexual Transmission NZAF's own Services and Outreach Coordinator Rodrigo Olin joins us to talk about the effects of stigma on people living with HIV. We examine stigma from all it's ugly angles including the gross comments from within the gay community to deeply rooted internalised stigma.

Stef bravely shares some deeply personal stories and Blaise officially coins the term Intergenerational Internalised Serophobia (and not just to cheat at Scrabble).

It's a heavy topic, but an important one. Is your HIV attitude up-to-date?

World AIDS Day Special

Get your red ribbons ready because it’s World AIDS Day.

Growing up gay during the AIDS epidemic was no walk in the park. On this special World AIDS Day episode Paul Blatchford from the Positive Speakers Bureau shares the inspiring story of his life-long battle for personal liberation. We don’t just mourn the loss of millions to AIDS related illness, we also celebrate the last 40 years of progress that let so many people living with HIV live full and healthy lives today.

Every queer person needs to know this part of their history.
