"Siuaraine" has many of these content creators hopeful about queer representation in the Wheel of Time TV series.

It’s time to kick off Pride month with a very special Maidens’ List featuring twelve queer Wheel of Time content creators you need to be following. Yes, this list is too big and too queer to be confined to just ten of them.

Last week, I put out a call to queer content creators both new and old, well-known and up-and-coming. What I found was an entire rainbow of amazing people eager to share their WoT origin stories and how they were inspired to share their creativity with the fandom.

Today's list is a blend of each content creator's story in their own words and some of my own thoughts on their work. It was a challenge to fit all of interesting tidbits of information about these creators into just one article, so be on the look out for more in-depth interviews in the future.

In the meantime, make sure you check out each and every one of these hard-working creators and support the vibrant LGBTQ+ community within the Wheel of Time fandom.

1. Morgan Thorson/Podcast of the Dragon

Podcast of the Dragon is full-spoilers topical literary analysis of the Wheel of Time. As the solo host, Morgan (she/her) does casual, essay-style lit lectures about WoT with a personal flair. As she follows the path of the story, she uses empathy to enhance all aspects of her analysis, from individual character breakdowns, to what might have informed Robert Jordan’s writing, to imagining things that could have occurred off-scene.

Morgan, who is bisexual and genderqueer, is currently wrapping up episodes covering The Shadow Rising, including an exploration of the Tanchico subplot, Rand in the glass columns, and Aiel history. Fair warning: Podcast of the Dragon is NSFW and is oriented toward people who are very familiar with the series. You can follow Morgan on Twitter at @PodOfTheDragon.

2. Lezbi Nerdy

Lezbi Nerdy, aka Jenny (she/her), has a lot of thoughts about the Wheel of Time in her big memoji head, and she shares them with the world via deep dives into character and plot, lists of things she loves, lists of things she has questions about, and even lists of things she finds problematic. With her fresh takes and sincere commentary, Lezbi Nerdy’s love for the Wheel of Time, fostered over the course of two decades of reading the books, shines through in each one her videos.

On Jenny's channel, you can also find episode reviews for the Wheel of Time TV series, as well as other shows like The Legend of Vox Machina, Doctor Who, and Sex Education. I love Lezbi Nerdy for her meme reviews, fresh takes on Faile, and brilliant Seanchan post-series head canon, but one of her best videos is this heartfelt one about why queer representation matters.

3. Cool Story Podcast

Cool Story is a first-time reader podcast hosted by Matt (he/him) and Enn (they/them). Matt is the first-timer and Enn has read the whole series more times than they can count. Their podcast goes chapter by chapter through the series, and along the way, they make endless jokes, references to pop culture and look for queer subtext wherever they can find it.

I personally love their thoughts on the queer coding within Perrin’s storyline, which they shared in an interview with Lezbi Nerdy. Follow them on Twitter at @CoolStoryPod1.

4. Kitsenugari/Uno

Kitsunegari, aka Uno Nomesta (they/them), has been in love with the Wheel of Time for almost 20 years. You can find their original Wheel of Time artwork at Uno’s Art Station on Instagram along with the occasional dinosaur, animal, or fantasy creature.

Kitsunegari’s style is a blend of realism and cartoon, including manga style drawings and rough pen/pencil sketches. They enjoy experimenting with different styles and mediums, including traditional, digital, or a blend of both.

Kitsunegari, who identifies as non-binary and pan, credits the Wheel of Time community for helping them understand their identity. They grew up in a small rural town in Sweden in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, where there was zero discussion about sexuality or gender dysphoria.

On the White Tower podcast Discord, Kitsunegari first encountered discussions about gender identity and discovered words to express things they struggled with all their life. Kitsunegari specifically asked to share their gratitude with the Wheel of Time fandom for being so open and inclusive. “It has made a world of difference for me.”

5. Tar Valon After Dark

Tar Valon After Dark is what happens when three powerhouse content creators combine their efforts in the name of clever, snarky, and irreverent fun. Jess from The Amyrlin’s Study, Nae’blis, and Recappa Sedai will invite you for a romp in the hay, promise to love you forever and have your babies, and then insult you and kick you out on your ass—and you’ll love every minute of it.
