About Us

The Outcast is a weekly show exploring queer topics as they pertain to politics, pop culture, fashion, relationships, money, and so much more. Hosted by Out Magazine's Rose Dommu, each episode expands Out's reporting on a topic or theme, and ends with the Week In Gay (or WIG), a wrap up of the week's gayest news featuring a rotating cast of Out staffers and other notable voices.

Latest Episodes

The Marvelous Mrs. Bowen Yang

We’re tired and sticky, but we made it! InThe Outcast’s season finale, we turn our gaze towards awards season, which kicks off September 22 with the Emmys. TV’s biggest night is finally here, honoring the incredible shows and performances we’ve loved this year (and This Is Us, probably). Helping host Rose Dommu sort through the veritable shit storm of the Emmys is newly minted Saturday Night Live cast member Bowen Yang. Rose and Bowen go category-by-category (the ones that matter, so just the women) making their picks for who will take home the gold. Along the way they discuss the enduring power of Lady Gaga, wild nights on Fire Island, and Emma Stone’s Emmy snub for “The Actress.” On WIG, Out’s Tre’vell Anderson and The Advocate’s Jeffrey Masters give the download on the week’s pressing queer news. Is Ariana Grande starring in the Wicked movie? Is RuPaul letting trans women audition for Drag Race? Are Rihanna and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo BFFs? Will The Outcast ever EGOT?

Jeremy O. Harris Is Having A Very Good Year

That’s a Deal Breaker, Ladies

Being queer doesn’t come with a guidebook, and LGBTQ+ folks are often left to navigate the world without the same social resources available to cishetero people. Thankfully, John Paul Brammer is using his experience and empathy to offer guidance in the form of his weekly Out advice column !Hola Papi! This week, John Paul joins host Rose Dommu to consult on issues ranging from lesbian influencer drama to whatever the opposite of being a “size queen” is. And on WIG: Jeffrey Masters, Arisce Wanzer, and Taylor Henderson debate whether Kristen Stewart should have stayed in the closet in order to land a Marvel movie and if Boston’s “straight pride parade” was a flop.

That’s a Deal Breaker, Ladies

Are You the Bottom?

Reality dating competitions may be a cornerstone of cishetero culture, but that’s all changing with the new season of MTV’s Are You the One, which features an entire cast of messy queer sluts doing their best Jersey Shore impressions. This week, AYTO cast members Rembrandt Duran and Basit join host Rose Dommu to chat about respectability politics, toxic masculinity in queer dating culture, and whether or not the AYTO house was stocked with enemas. In WIG, Rose is joined by Out staff writer Harron Walker and LGBTQ&A host Jeffrey Masters as they unpack the VMAs, Trump’s homophobic challenger, and Karamo Brown’s enduring love for Sean Spicer.
