Gay Sunday Brunch

Host of Gay Sunday Brunch
Jim Ver Steeg
A popular fan favorite, Gay Sunday Brunch was born in January 2011 from host and producer Jim Ver Steeg's original show, Gay Street Beat. Known for an ever-changing cast of fabulous friends who gathered to chat about news, current events, and pretty much anything else, Gay Sunday Brunch always entertained and informed.

Listeners and fans said they came to rely on the high-caliber guests and off-the-cuff conversations around their brunch table. "Often funny and always insightful, GSB tackles topics from the silly and mundane to the serious with effortless dexterity," said listener Matt Schwartz. "Jim interviews celebrities, activists, and community with pure alacrity."

At its peak, Ver Steeg said of hosting the show, "It's a really fantastic experience. It's always a good time to get funny and smart friends together talk about the events happening in our world."

For some unsuspecting listeners, a big (and perhaps unwelcome) surprise came when Jim announced that he was stepping away from a regular weekly show and returning to grad school. While the show is no longer being produced, over 100 episodes of Gay Sunday Brunch, and a few episodes of the tamer Shades of Sunday, are still available on iTunes.

Take some time to find out what hundreds of thousands of listeners already know: There was no place like Gay Sunday Brunch.

  2. Dear Editor,

    My name is Karina Tefft, and I’m the East Coast Booking Agent for Peterson Toscano. If you’re not yet familiar, Peterson is a Queer performance artist, bible scholar and activist with a long and complicated journey toward accepting himself as gay. Peterson spent 17 years and over $30,000 on three continents trying to “de-gay” myself. He ultimately came out as gay, and has been a vocal witness concerning the potential dangers of what is known as gay conversion therapy or “ex-gay” treatments. In 2007 he organized the Ex-Gay Survivor Conference in Irvine, CA. He is the author of the one person play, “Doin’ Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House,” and is featured in the award winning documentary film, This is What Love in Action Looks Like.
    I’m reaching out to you because Peterson is going in a new direction with his Queer performance activism. Focused on Queer Climate Action, he is relaunching his website (www.petersontoscano.com,) which includes a new blog (www.petersontoscano.com/blog.) Peterson has always been on the forefront of human rights work and performance art, and is very much on the cutting edge as he elevates Climate Change as an LGBTQ issue. I would be happy to forward you a detailed press release about Peterson’s new site and his new work if you provide an email address for correspondence. We would love it if you shared Peterson’s art and activism with you listeners and/or readers. Please note that the new website will be officially launched on April 28, before which you may experience limited access to some pages on his site. Please check back if this happens.

    I would love to talk with you about scheduling an interview with Peterson on Gay Sunday Brunch. Peterson has done many radio interviews, which are listed on his bio page at petersontoscano.com Here is a link to one of his recent interviews: Peterson Toscano on WHYY. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or for information about booking Peterson on your program.

    Many thanks,

    Karina Tefft
