Here's a bit about me.

I specialize in long-form interviews and have conducted over 250 interviews with people like Angela Davis, Laverne Cox, Janelle Monáe, Pete Buttigieg, and Billie Jean King, on my podcast, LGBTQ&A. (You can watch my sit-down with Pete Buttigieg here.)


LGBTQ&A has been featured in The New York TimesThe Advocate, USA Today, NBC, GLAADNewNowNext, People Magazine, Page Six, and was ranked #2 on a list of the top podcasts to listen to by Buzzfeed.


I've written for The Advocate (including the June 2021 cover story with Niecy Nash), Out MagazineElectric Literature, PopSugar, Into (RIP), HIV Plus Magazine, and Hello Mr. I also had the privilege of interviewing the 87-year-old Joy of Gay Sex co-author, Dr. Charles Silverstein, before he died.

In 2021, I received a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Print Article for my reporting, and was also included in Logo TV's inaugural #Logo30 list of influential LGBTQ+ people.


Here's what Logo had to say (as well as the video feature you can watch here):

"Whether he’s chatting with seminal AIDS advocate Cleve Jones or rising powerhouses like Our Lady J and Keiynan Lonsdale, Masters digs deep, surpassing expected coming out stories in favor of examining specific life moments that have defined the queer luminaries we love." 

And lastly — I know, it's a lot of me me me me me — you can watch a clip of my most recent MSNBC segment talking about HIV stigma here. And my full hosting reel here
