Think Queerly is a podcast about human-hearted leadership for queer-thinking people.

I’m Darren Stehle and if you’re like me and want to make a difference in the world, you’ll understand that change starts with the responsibility to know thyself first.

That’s how I came to my coaching philosophy: "When you freely love who you are, you can freely create the life you want."

I follow two principles that support my philosophy: Lead by example and with the utmost integrity, authenticity, courage, and transparency, and; Give people better ways to think and ways to think more critically.

This podcast is a place where I get to share my evolving insights as a coach and thought leader through an intersection of self-examination, queerness, neuroscience and my study and study of the Tao Te Ching.

My intention is to help you see the world differently, to think queerly, to lead from your uniqueness, and to create solutions for the betterment of humanity and the world.

    Two years ago on June 20, 2018, I launched my first podcast. It was called, The Living OUT Podcast, a tongue-in-cheek reference to coming out and being proud to be authentically out.

    Has LGBTQ+ Pride Been White-Washed by White Gay Men?

    Last week I published a post on my Medium publication by Shawn Banks titled, "Why White Gay Men Have Ruined LGBTQ+ Pride Month For Me". My involvement in the comments raised a number of questions in me, so I asked Shawn if he would come on the podcast and have a conversation.

Voice of Reason

I really enjoy this podcast and the content that Darren shares on social media platforms. He says what the community needs to hear on how to be there for ourselves and one another and make positive changes in our lives and for our community.

Queer self discovery

Darren, I’ve started to listen more to your podcasts recently and kudos to you.

I was and still am having hard time adjusting to the toxic masculinity at work and your pod cast have helped me a lot.

They opened up my mind In understanding the queer life and being able to See and label toxic masculinity on people who don’t accept us nor want to help us excel in life as lgbt members in or fully out.

My previous stance on this topic was to be nice and people will see the good but now I have changed it to if you don’t accept me I am not here to please you, and in some ways it has worked with people who are not fully right winged but at the same to
Ive accept I can’t change every one.

Thank you for doing what you do best write and speak so eloquently (sometimes with Freudian slips which are great comic relives and I find my self chuckle while driving )

So I’m writing this text to really motivate you more to expand your podcast and maybe idea to get more involved psych DRs as guest on your show to expand and give more advise and toolsets on how to deal with lgbt issues on day to day basis.

And That you are changing lives.

Big hugs
