Inspiring

As someone who is trying to come to terms with who they are in their thirties, I have found this podcast incredibly useful. I enjoy listening to other peoples stories and being educated about LGBT history. Thanks so much Ginger. I have to say as well, I find your voice very soothing! I look forward to listening to future episodes.

Later in life

I have really enjoyed listening to all the interviews - Makes me feel like I belong somewhere, coming out later in life can feel complicated but so freeing. I feel years of internalised shame, guilt and fear melting away. Thanks for making this podcast just when I needed a deeper understanding of self reflection and sense of being. 😁
