Attention passengers, we’re welcoming all boarding groups for QueerSpace — a limited series from the creators of AirSpace featuring stories and people at the intersection of aviation, space, and LGBTQ+ history and culture. The AirSpace podcast explores how flight impacts our lives — from newsworthy discoveries that expand our understanding of the universe to the history of that airline safety video you watch every time you fly. For QueerSpace, we’re highlighting how queer culture has shaped what aerospace is and can be — from the building of a supportive and welcoming community of flight attendants in the 1970s to the imagined worlds of sci-fi challenging our binary perceptions. Any of these stories would be at home in a regular AirSpace season, but we’re putting them together in a limited series to highlight the scope and diversity of queer experiences found across human flight and space science.
