    This month's guest William Smith founded the long-running website gaylifeafter40.com and several related groups on Facebook.

    GR 33 Writer Ronni Sanlo shares her story

    I discovered Ronni Sanlo through her long running blog series about LGBT history and I am excited to have her as a guest on Graying Rainbows. Ronni was one of many LGBT parents who lost custody of her children due to Anita Bryant's homophobic campaign in the late 1970's. She shares how her experience led her into activism and continues to influence her writing.

Graying Rainbows

Such an awesome podcast that addresses the topic of people coming out later in life. It’s very helpful in encouraging older people to live authentically and support one another.

Of Course...

Lured to this podcast from references on her amazing Brain Science Podcast, Dr Ginger Campbell continues to connect every week with me and my life experience. As a late boomer myself, this podcast feels like home with an already established circle of friends. Love the interviews and look forward to each unfolding story and that lovely, comfortable, feeling of familiarity. Thanks for inviting me in!
