Hey Y'all, Welcome to Southern Queeries!

A Podcast about 🌈 LGBTQ+ Stories in the South.

Join Aubree & India our Co-hosts and explore these stories with new topics and guests on each episode! 


An Incredible podcast, full of heart, honesty, and humor. Such a celebration of the many lives we lead, offering listeners a new lens on what it means to be in the world by sharing stories that too often aren't being told or heard. Highly Recommended!  - A. Eighty

Honest and open conversation. Found myself thinking several times "we are more alike than we are different!" Can't wait to listen to more episodes!  - Miriam M.

As a non-Southern  queer, I really love hearing this perspective. So interesting and the hosts have great chemistry. - Leesa Charlotte

As a person from outside the US with a boyfriend in Oklahoma, this podcast has opened my eyes to perspectives of other queer individuals. I live in NY and my idea of what a US LGBTQ person looks like still needs to be expanded, thank you for sharing stories like this!  - Pelayo

India Bastien

Co-Founder/Technical Producer/Co-Host/Writer

Raised as an American in Mexico, India is a self proclaimed 'Mexigringa', she is biracial, bicultural, bilingual and Queer🌈

Her authentic self was found in the South and calls the South her home. Her intersectionality bleeds into her work and her everyday life. Professionally, India works in People Operations and used to work as a Producer and Designer. India started this podcast because she thinks it is important to give a voice to LGBTQ people living in the South. She is fascinated by cultures, sociology, history and all things gay and just couldn't think of a better platform to document and share stories than a podcast.  "Any excuse to throw some confetti is a good one 🎉 even if its a podcast"
