LGBT Stories documents the struggles, hardships, questions, joys, eye-openers and more, that many in the LGBTQI community have faced as they've opened up with the public, their families and most importantly themselves about their true identity, the decision to come out and what life is like today for them.

We believe that the more society understands marginalized groups of people, the more society can identify with these groups, the more an understanding of the views, emotions, beliefs become apparent, the closer we all become in being truly united.

    King of Stars Pt. 2 - Best of LGBT Stories 2019

    King of Stars Pt. 2 - Best of LGBT Stories 2019

    Today’s episode is called King of Stars and it features a man names, Ryan Heller. You may know that Ryan is the designer of our logo, but he also told his story on the show year ago. It’s a long, two-part episode and I am so excited to reshape it with you all. Part one is here today, and part two will be released tomorrow. I hope you enjoy Ryan’s story on December 20th, 2016.

Life changing and educational

Storytelling teaching, learning from others experiences. I’m proud of you Kevin for putting this together and continuing to put the hard work in to it, thanks for being patient with storytellers as it’s a very hard thing to open and variable in these ways. Thanks to all who have shared!

Positive and Uplifting Stories

I was introduced to this podcast recently, and quickly became in love with the stories shared. I love how the stories are told in such a way that I always get something positive out of it. This podcast is an excellent resource to become acquainted with a fraction of the many members of the LGBTQ community who are making a difference in this world. Love this podcast!

Love This Podcast

I don’t ordinarily comment on the many Podcasts that I listen to, but I felt compelled to comment today. It’s Thanksgiving and as I sit in my home thinking about all that I am thankful for, I listened to today’s episode. I think Kevin does an amazing job capturing the spirit of our community and I am very thankful that I get to listen to him each week. This podcast and the stories that Kevin brings to us each week makes me feel more connected to the community that I love so much. Thank you for the great work that you do and for giving us something to be thankful for every week!
