#026 – Turning Inwards: Problems in our Movements

This week the Gaytheists have a chat about some various problems we see in both the LGBTQ and atheist movements. Its not about dragging each other down, its about us all doing the best we can to be the best we can.

#025 – Parents and Kids

This week we have some frank and open discussion about parent/child relationships from several different perspectives. First, a conversation with Ashley, who grew up with two moms, then a conversation with MISS Ashley from the No Religion Required podcast about raising her kids as an atheist parent. Topping it off is an extremely honest and open interview with Dany, a trans man, and his mom Charlene about their journey together through Dany’s transition.

#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
