    Vampires and Guys with Snake Tattoos w/ Saro

    Vampires and Guys with Snake Tattoos w/ Saro

    Today we’re talking with Saro, spelled s-a-r-o, an LA-based R&B-pop artist. Saro, AKA Evan Windom, is an independent artist who’s moody tracks live up to his name as he belts out lyrics like “love is pain.” Recently, Saro began to openly sing about the men he has dated. Like his recent single, “Daddy I Love Him.” But before he was proudly using male pronouns in his songs, he was using vague lyrics to hide his sexuality. It’s a fear a lot of musicians have. That they’ll lose fans if they don’t conform and sing songs about the opposite sex. But Saro found a way to live authentically and now writes songs about vampires and guys with snake tattoos without a second thought.

    Be sure to follow Saro on IG!

    Pray Away w/ Randy Thomas

    Pray Away w/ Randy Thomas

    So today, we’re doing something a little different on the Pride podcast. I connect with Anne Heche and Heather Duffy, hosts of the Better Together podcast, who introduce me to Randy Thomas. Randy, one of the subjects of Netflix's "Pray Away", was the former vice-president of Exodus International. Exodus was a nonprofit group under the Christian umbrella that practiced conversion therapy in attempt to change an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity, using psychological or spiritual interventions. Anne also divulges her own Christian-cult family history, with an appearance from her mother, Nancy Heche, herself.

    Like many child actors, Alyson has since spoken out about the intense conditions of her childhood and how she barely escaped the toddler-to-trainwreck pipeline. Today, she lives a pretty ordinary life. She’s furniture shopping for her new home, going to the farmers market on the weekends and researching what college she wants to take classes at. She’s even spoken up about falling in love with a woman for the first time. Today, we talk to Alyson about the effects her Hollywood career had on her childhood, her first crush, mental health, and starting fresh.

    Black Gay Weddings w/ Lawrence & Michael Broughton

    Black Gay Weddings w/ Lawrence & Michael Broughton

    When you were little, you probably pictured what your wedding day would look like. So when the day finally arrives to plan your big day, it’s a big deal. If a large celebration is your thing, then you’ll probably look for vendors and color schemes and outfits. This is exactly what Lawrence and Michael went to do, but it wasn’t as magical as they had dreamed. When they went on Pinterest for wedding inspiration, they couldn’t find a single photo of a couple that looked like them. They’re Black and gay and Pinterest boards today don’t have very much representation at all. But luckily, there’s a new wedding platform where minorities can find nothing but representation and love.

What the queer community needs

Levi has done an incredible job at introducing a me to a diverse group of LGBTQ people and allies on this podcast. He tells stories that matter and show the depth and culture within our community that is often missed on other mainstream media representations of queer people. Everyone should listen and learn a bit more than they knew before. So thankful to have found this podcast.
