The original series will celebrate queer joy, Netflix says, featuring interviews with top LGBTQ+ creatives. It launches on Monday, and is hosted by lesbian actress and singer/songwriter Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers, Yelowjackets, Scream) and nonbinary actor and playwright Liv Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet, Yellowjackets, Bombshell).
The Gay Agenda is produced by Brooklyn studio Multitutde. Eight, 45-minute episodes will be released weekly, with episodes featuring nonbinary actor Bex Taylor-Klaus, Language Lessons director Natalie Morales, and comedian Fortune Feimster.

“With our first foray into the podcast space, Most is entering a new era,” stated Netflix’s editorial and publishing manager for Most, Gabrielle Korn, ”one where the gay agenda continues to expand into all corners of our audience’s lives, making it easier and more fun than ever to discover Netflix’s LGBTQ+ talent, titles, and storytelling.”
Netflix has launched over 40 shows since establishing its podcast division in 2018, Variety reports – many of which serve to complement its original programming. However, it does produce original shows as well. The company named Apple and NPR vet N’Jeri Eaton its first-ever head of podcasts in July.
