House of Barbrism is three queer podcasts in one: ADVENTURES IN GAYBYSITTING, CLOSET PRACTICE, and DOCUMENTA AND SON. From relationships to parenting to culture to sex, it's all in our house! ADVENTURES IN GAYBYSITTING (alternating Mondays), hosted by gay New York dad Documenta Barbrism and bi L.A. mom Shannon Corder, chronicles the highs and lows of coming out of the closet and having your first baby at the age of 40. CLOSET PRACTICE (alternating Mondays) is an opportunity for queers of all stripes to share their stories, whether they're in, out, or out-curious. In DOCUMENTA AND SON (every Thursday), newly out gay dad Documenta tries to mentor his newly out bi son Dingle Mary on the ins and outs of queer life, and occasionally even succeeds! Every week they play games, hang out, and discuss a different queer culture object. Remember, Barbrism begins at home!

    CP #11 - I Want You(r Story)!

    Hey, Barbs. Do you like the new nickname I came up with for my young, hip, rabidly devoted, extremely online House of Barbrism fan base? I was gonna go with Army, but that was already taken…by the military. So, Barbs, here’s the deal, I want you. I mean I want your body. I mean I want you so bad right now. Dammit, Doc, we talked about this! I mean I  want your STORY. I’m so grateful to the amazing people who have shared their closet stories so far, but I am a greedy, greedy, guh-reedy bottom and enough is never enough. I need more!

    Wherever you are in the world, whatever your age, if you are queer and anywhere on the evolutionary scale between Australopithecus and homo sapiens sapiens, I want to interview you! No one needs to know your name if you’re into the whole anonymity thing, I just want your body, I mean story. So, what are you waiting for?

    Drop me a line at buttstuff@documentabarbrism.com. I’m sure I don’t need to remind you sensual, lubricious Barbs that there’s only one “a” in “Barbrism.” Or find me on Insta @DocumentaBarbrism or find me on Twitter @DocumentaB or find me online @DocumentaBarbrism.com. Or better yet, find me a boyfriend! I’m so terribly, terribly lonely. Anyhoo, you, me, Closet Practice - it’s a match made in Hell’s Kitchen! 

    As always, thanks for listening, you beautiful Barbs, out there in the dark. Talk to you soon! And apologies to any Ardipithecus or hominidae out there I might have offended.

Refreshing, Honest, Valuable

Wonderful podcast that investigates queerness in many different contexts and forms. Whether it is hearing personal experiences in coming out, sharing an honest, real relationship between a queer father and son, or looking at how queerness functions in a modern society, House of Barbrism gives us all - whether straight, LGBTQIA+, or fluid in any sense - a chance to self-reflect on how we can contribute to a more open, kinder, accepting society. Bravo to the creators, bravo to all of those brave enough to share their stories.
