"It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences." - Audre Lorde
Over the years I've struggled to understand my own orientation. It was hard for me to embrace such a core component of my existence. Part of my personal journey to better understand myself resulted in a number of incredibly nuanced conversations related to all things LGBTQ+ on this podcast.
Besides my own journey, I returned to the topic of LGBTQ+ on the podcast because I feel there are many individuals out there who have a flawed opinion of the community due to their own upbringing. By bringing the human element of these conversations front and center these same individuals can start to understand how we're much more alike than we are different.
The episodes listed below run the gamut of conversations related to: gender identity, LGBTQ+ representations in the media, and how to raise inclusive kids. (NOTE: Some guests have returned to the podcast and we've listed all of their episodes beneath their picture)
