    Graying Rainbows Celebrates Third Anniversary

    Graying Rainbows Celebrates Third Anniversary

    Graying Rainbows launched in November 2018. It's been an eventful three years, so this episode is a little different. It contains some advice for new listeners, reflections on lessons learned, and a brief look toward the future.
    Now that there are over 50 episodes I have done some re-organizing to make it easier to find certain content.
    The About page at grayingrainbows.com contains a partial list of episodes based on the following categories:
    (B) Book reviews
    (F) Faith related stories
    (POC) People of Color
    (T) Transgender
    (V) Veterans
     
    I have also placed a complete list of all the episodes on my personal website.

    GR 55 Review of "All In" by Billie Jean King

    GR 55 Review of "All In" by Billie Jean King

    This episode of Graying Rainbows is a review of Billie Jean King's new autobiography "All In." I highly recommend the audio version because it is read by King and her emotions come through. King's story includes "coming out later in life." She describes the toll that the delay took on her health and happiness, as well as the new sense of freedom she discovered when she was finally out to herself and the world.

    Asexuality with Sondra Julie Decker

    Asexuality with Sondra Julie Decker

    This episode is an interview with Julie Sondra Decker, author of "The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality." Most people acknowledge that sexual orientations includes homosexuals, bisexuals, and heterosexuals, but there is actually a fourth possibility. A person who identifies as asexual does not feel sexual attraction to anyone. Unfortunately, many assume that this represents a disease when actually it is part of normal human diversity. We discuss what asexuality IS as well as what it is NOT. Asexuality is about attraction NOT behavior.
    Our goal is to embrace human diversity and acknowledge that each person's identity should be respected as equally valid. If the idea of asexuality is new to you, I hope you will listen to this informative interview.

    Dr. Larry Millhoffer shares his experiences from the early days of AIDS

    Dr. Larry Millhoffer shares his experiences from the early days of AIDS

    Dr. Larry Millhoffer is a retired physician who is grateful to have been with his husband for 45 years. Over that time the meaning of "coming out" has evolved, but a pivotal time in his life was caring for the first patients with AIDS as a young physician in the early 80's. During our conversation he reflects on the challenges of caring for patients in a time of fear and uncertainty, and on how the AIDS crisis changed the LGBT community.
    Because our community lost so many people during this period I think it is extremely valuable to hear from those who lived through that time. As a gay physician Dr. Millhoffer brings a perspective that we don't usually get to hear.
