Amazing approach to coming out!

Listening to this incredibly welcoming podcast reminded me of all the incredible character building qualities that the coming out process builds in one struggling with their identity. Drake Andrews, thank you for inviting voices to share their journey and encourage others to pursue their dreams! I can’t wait to keep listening.
