#024 – Behind Enemy Lines

This week the Gaytheists tell stories from behind enemy lines. We, our guest, and some of our listeners offer up stories for times they were forced to be in environments hostile to their identity as either a non-believer or an LGBTQ person.

#023 – Gaytheist AMA

We invited our listeners to ask us anything, and you responded with some amazing questions about the queer and trans experience. This won’t be the last time we do this!

Here’s a link to the poem I reference all the time but can never remember the name of. Its called “Boobs” and its by a poet named Ollie Schminkey. Its unbelievably powerful, and the reference I always make is a very small part of the poem’s message. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi7Vss4GYks
