Queer State of Mind turned one this week, and we celebrated by taking the week off and enjoying Friendsgiving leftovers. But, we put together clips from some of our best segments and interviews this year.

Take a listen to our first show on the air, where we talk about the 2015 holiday phenomenon Patti’s Sweet Potato Pie and the viral clip that put the pie sales off the charts.

And, if you live in the city, you know that sometimes the subways aren’t your friend. Co-host Orie was tardy for the show and Saidue and Justin held it down with a candid conversation on online dating.

Plus we take a listen back to our queers on the mic special edition with former co-hosts Chinwe and Terron, and our favorite interviews with fabulous NYC performers Melli B, Chris Harder and Sir Honey Davenport, Robbyne Kaamil and Richie Bee and Peter Savad from Deitre.

Take a deep breath and say it with us: President. Donald. Trump.

Join our hosts as they comment – and commiserate – on the election results that some saw coming, but few outspokenly anticipated. We discuss the pain of watching Hillary’s chances fall from Ohio, the “Becky on Becky shade” emerging from the rubble, and the results that validated what many in the social justice community felt all along.

There are fewer than three months until Inauguration Day, and like many Americans, we still have questions.  Where do we go next? Have we reached, as Orie put it, “Peak fucking ignorance”? And will this be a wake-up call for those who’ve ignored or rationalized the problems that fueled the rise of Trump? Or will people continue to bury their heads in the sand? Grab some tea (or a cocktail), take a seat, and embrace the truth, pettiness and shade that are the only remedies for this disaster of an election.

This week we debut Lady Gaga’s new track Perfect Illusion and give you our thoughts. Plus, the vocal stylings of Natalie Cole give us life!

Did you hear about Fmr. Secretary of State Colin Powell’s shady emails. No, anyone who has an old black uncle isn’t surprised, but just like at the barbecue, that ish is funny.

And we give our take on the controversial sentencing of NYC gay black man Bayna Lekhiem El-Amin for defending himself in an incident at Dallas BBQ.
