Our View - Podcast

Even in 2019 coming out is hard! It can be difficult for individuals within the LGBTQ+ community to find stories that are relatable. 

Each week, join me as I interview guests who are navigating their own experiences regarding LGBTQ+ issues. 

If you are considering coming out to friends and family, identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, or are a family member/friend of someone who has come out and are looking to become more informed, this is the podcast for you.

Available on multiple podcasting platforms including: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Anchor and Stitcher.

Episode 1

Interviewing my former therapist

Coming out as gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender or any other LGBTQ+ identity can be a really difficult process! I discuss this process with therapist Kathleen Kettles including: her advice on telling parents/grandparents about coming out, sexual/gender fluidity, dealing with a crush on a best friend and recommendations for individuals who don't feel part of a community. 

Episode 3

Gender and the non-binary community

This week I am really excited to share my interview with the amazing Rylee. We discuss issues faced within the non-binary community. Many societies often recognise two genders, male and female. Non-binary is one term people use to describe genders that don’t fall into one of the two categories of male or female.

 Non-binary people aren’t following a new 'millennial' fad – non-binary identities have been recognised for years by cultures and societies around the world. So in today’s episode I speak to Rylee to try and help shed more light for people who would like to learn more about the non-binary community. 

Episode 2

2009 vs 2019

The #10yearchallenge is all over social media. Some people are taking the opportunity to show themselves as a geeky teen, while others are discussing more serious issues such as global warming and the extinction of animals. 

In this episode of "Our View" I reflect on my high school days and some of the challenges I faced as a closeted gay teen living in a rural community.
