Hi. I’m glad you’re here.
Here are a few fun facts about me.
I specialize in long-form interviews and have interviewed titans of LGBTQ+ history like Pete Buttigieg, Roxane Gay, Laverne Cox, Brandi Carlile, Billie Jean King, and Trixie Mattel for my podcast, LGBTQ&A.
When my local paper, The New York Times, wrote about the show, they said this: "If you want to understand what it sounds like when a host is prepared, look no further than Jeffrey Masters. His interest in his guests’ stories, as well as his encouraging manner, allows him to get beyond the surface whether he’s interviewing activists or members of the entertainment industry."
While I’m bragging, in 2021, I received a GLAAD Media Award for my reporting. I was also included in Logo TV's inaugural #Logo30 list of 30 influential LGBTQ+ people. They wrote, “Masters digs deep, surpassing expected coming out stories in favor of examining specific life moments that have defined the queer luminaries we love."
I read 3-4 books a month. A lot of those books are by LGBTQ+ writers, though not exclusively. (Shout out to Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. Many describe it as a “masterpiece” and those people are correct.)
A large number of books I read are utter shit. Same goes for the TV shows. Most of it absolutely will not be recommended here. Life is too short to watch another underwhelming Netflix show by [redacted].
There are no actual redactions in the newsletter.
My biggest pet peeve is watching something that I expected to love, only to realize more than an hour in that I’d wasted my entire night.
I don’t want this to happen to you.
I promise not to let that happen to you.
