Pride is a time of celebration and queer joy and it's also a time to listen to and learn from our stories, and “Voices: Stay Proud,a new campaign created by Surface Level podcast and GLAAD aims to do just that.

"Voices: Stay Proud" brings together a chorus of Black & Brown LGBTQ+ storytellers who refuse to be silenced," said [Damon Epps], host of Surface Level podcast and campaign Creative Director. “Each voice represented here is an independent show who we have admired or crossed paths with along our journey. Bringing everyone together under one roof, if only for a day, was truly magical and we are thrilled to have captured that moment to share with our community.”

This initiative gathers together a broad swath of voices and perspectives representing a beautiful spectrum of genders, sexualities, ages, and ethnicities. Separately they highlight the many intersections that make up our community and together they highlight the shared power of story-telling.

And if that’s not enough all on its own, just look at who’s being featured in this campaign.
