Being Seen is a podcast by writer, author, and activist Darnell Moore. It is an in-depth exploration of culture’s role in resolving the tension between how we are seen and how we see ourselves. Focused on the gay and queer Black male experience, the first season of Being Seen is a space to explore these questions through conversations with leading artists, writers, activists, entertainers, and community leaders.
