Ascendent podcast studio Novel and host Shon Faye just recently announced the second season of Call Me Mother, the trailblazing archive for members of the queer community who have something important and relevant to say about what it means to be a member of a marginalized community today. The first episode drops on June 24, 2022.

What Viewers Can Expect from Season 2

The second season of Call Me Mother chronicles connecting with a younger generation of LGBTQ+ community members — providing listeners the vocabulary necessary to grapple with unfamiliar experiences, showcasing how they belong to a much broader history. 

The upcoming season will feature voices and histories from around the world, including Donna Persona of San Francisco’s Compton’s Cafeteria, the UK’s Lisa Power, founder of Stonewall, Zsa Zsa Fisher, a South African trans rights worker and former Miss Gay South Africa, founder of Nigeria’s House of Rainbow, Jide Macaulay, and many more.

Queer History Disseminated Like Never Before

In shining a light on stories that are typically overlooked, Faye is “not only highlighting the tireless work and valuable life experiences of previous generations,” says Bustle on the impact of season one, but “providing younger listeners with an oral queer history they’d struggle to find anywhere else.”
