Celebrate Pride with Alexandra Billings (Transparent), Nikki Levy (Don’t Tell My Mother!), and six fabulous storytellers as they share true tales about owning their queer identities.
Owning It, produced especially for Pride Month in collaboration with the historic live event and podcast Don’t Tell My Mother!, brings Audible Members a collection of uplifting, raw, and hilarious stories from queer actors, comedians, and personalities. Cohosted by beloved actress and activist Alexandra Billings and storytelling maven Nikki Levy, Owning It is a joyous celebration of LGBTQIA+ stories and icons.
Hear comedian Jen Kober (Dead to Me) detail her hilarious attempt at a summer romance at Jewish camp in the 1980s. Catch RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio face her biggest fear at a remodeled Pizza Hut in Wisconsin. Hear Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) share the story of digging through the trash – literally – to fund his dreams of becoming an actor. Hear Diona Reasonover (NCIS) describe her dramatic journey to the altar after a lifetime of believing it was impossible. Listen to Transparent star Shakina Nayfack’s tale of coming out…as Christian. And finally, Chase Strangio, the deputy director for transgender justice at the ACLU, tells his story of fighting and winning the first major Supreme Court case for trans rights.
We’ve been inside for over a year. Now it’s time to celebrate.

Just binged this, and absolutely loved! The hosts, Nikki & Alexandra, were smart and thoughtful. And the stories of LGBTQ excellence were awesome and inspiring. I loved Jen Kober (I went to Jewish summer camp, too!) and Chase Strangio (I cried at the end of his), but all were fabulous. It's been a hard year. I needed something to feel good about myself and remember that I'm part of a big, strong community. Thanks for a great Friday night.

Perhaps unfairly I came into this expecting something like the Risk Podcast. Unfortunately this isn’t anywhere near as good. I felt like the stories were bland. In one story literally nothing happened at all, but none were outstanding. And again, maybe I’m just too used to listening to podcasts that are basically the passion projects of the hosts, but the hosts on this seem very scripted... like they’re putting on a show instead of just making what they love.
