LGBTQ&A is a weekly podcast produced by Maria Menounos and AfterBuzz TV. Masters has interviewed celebrities like Ross Mathews, Peter Paige, Perez Hilton, and Laura Jane Grace, as well as people you might not have heard of, like Shane Ortega, the first transgender person to serve openly in the military. 

"Some of the important people in LGBTQ history are alive today, and I really want to document their stories in a single, accessible place," Masters said recently. "I also wanted to show how diverse we are since people in the news tend to talk about all LGBTQ people as this monolithic community."

LGBTQ&A is the first of its kind and has been mentioned in USA Today, Huffington Post, PopSugar, and Buzzfeed. Buzzfeed ranked LGBTQ&A at #2 on a list of 27 Podcasts You Should Listen to in 2017.
