    Let’s F*cking Date, with Serena Kerrigan

    Let’s F*cking Date, with Serena Kerrigan

    Sooo in LA they just opened the bars, and closed them again due to COVID cases going up, and on top of that they closed the beaches for the holiday weekend. If you can’t go to a bar, and you can’t go to the beach, and the rest of the time you’re wearing a mask so no one can see you - how on earth are singles supposed to meet someone? Serena F*****g Kerrigan joins us to discuss how to become a confidence queen, whether we should fake it ‘til we make it, why we should ignore the people who label confidence as intimidating, how Serena’s Let’s F*****g Date Instagram Live show came to be and why it’s easier than the distractions real life dating throws at you, how her dates are vetted and her village (audience, followers, and friends) helps her out with the process, why Serena is an advocate for virtual dates FIRST before dating IRL, how the pandemic has actually created a new sense of intimacy, whether she thinks virtual dating will still be a thing after the pandemic is behind us, which dating apps she likes and why, how to send an opening message with confidence, the path Serena is on to becoming the Oprah of her field, how you can get in touch and be coached by Serena, and why the most important relationship is ultimately with yourself!

We have speaker and author of A Gay Man’s Guide To Life, Britt East, in to discuss the release of his book and the past experiences that inspired him to write it, how homophobia can be considered sexual abuse, why we should all be ruling each other in rather than ruling eachother out, how hiding who you are can affect milestones like first crushes, first kisses and other crucial developmental stages in a gay person’s life, how gay dating became transactional, and why that can develop a crippling fear of intimacy, the social injustices within the gay community you didn’t know existed, what racism looks like with in the gay community and why it’s more stark than you think, how sexual preference labels can be hurtful and helpful at the same time, what gender roles look like for gay men, why the future is pansexual, how we can help the gay youth of today, and why the formula for finding love is to first figure out who you are and then to follow the energy. Love is love!
