    164: LDL & QLC Simulcast

    Hey friends, Mary and Kirsten take the reins on this Latter-Day Lesbian and Queer Life Crisis Simulcast. We share some initial reactions to Under the Banner of Heaven, and manage to keep the spoilers to a minimum. Also, we're taking a bit of a break from podcasting, so we hope all of you have an amazing summer and we'll talk to you again in the fall.

    163: Queering the American Dream

    Please join us today for a fantastic conversation with Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber. Her new book, Queering the American Dream is available now on Amazon or at your local bookstore. You can also purchase a copy at Angela's foundation: the Tehom Center, which provides a space to learn about and celebrate the lives of revolutionary women and goddesses. Angela's art and writing provide methods for learning about such women, and her Intentional Art Process invites people of marginalized genders to explore their own spiritualities in her courses and retreats. Learn more at https://tehomcenter.org.

    162: The Game of Life

    162: The Game of Life

    Did you ever play that Hasbro board game with the cute little cars and the little pegs? Or wait...did you play the Mormon version?? That fun game where young adults are put to the test as they try to guess what the "right" decision is, and then get to experience copious amounts of guilt and shame and also fake punishments if they guess incorrectly? Well, we are ripping the shirt out of THAT game today. Even "Leave It In" Dan has something to say about it. We also have a FUMPOTD and an entry from Shelly's journal. Should be a good time.

    159: Candle Therapy

    159: Candle Therapy

    TW: The subject of suicidal ideation is discussed along with self harm and strong sexual themes. Please listen responsibly.

    Please help us welcome Jen, from The ExMo Candle Co., to today's show. Jen bravely and generously shared with us her story of shame and abuse inflicted by the LDS church. She now funnels those experiences, and the resulting trauma, into making candles - a business she shares with her husband Adri. If you're interested in purchasing the "Gay Away the Pray" candle (or any of their amazing varieties), please cut and paste www.exmocandles.com into a browser window and click on the Creator Candles tab at the top of the site. A portion of the proceeds from each "Gay Away the Pray" candle helps support this podcast! Thank you in advance!

I look forward to each episode! I love these two woman. PTSD is real every day from the Church. I love they live their truth and tell us about it. I love listening and cannot wait for next episode.

Diana Ragsdale’s memoir

Ex-LDSDiana Ragsdale wrote a memoir called Loose Cannons. I hope you can have her on the show!

Life-Saving Lesbians!

As a 17 year old male who has been a similar situation, these two are the best!! I’m glad I can have someone to relate to, even when it feels like there’s none.
