    Inner Child w/ Brian Falduto

    Inner Child w/ Brian Falduto

    Brian Falduto has a slew of titles under his belt. He was a child actor alongside Jack Black, he has a career in country music, he’s a life coach, oh and he’s thinking about writing a children’s book. But today, we talk to Brian about what really got him to this point in his life. All the elementary school bullies, the pressure from being in the public eye, and his own internal homophobia that kept him from being his true self for years.

    ENCORE - Trans Power Couple: Jake & Hannah Graf

    ENCORE - Trans Power Couple: Jake & Hannah Graf

    In honor of Mother's Day in the US, here is a rebroadcast featuring Hannah Graf's story as a trans mother along with trans husband and father, Jake Graf. Love to all trans parents out there!
    ------
    There are lies people tell us to keep us in line. You’ve heard them. Some are relatively harmless. Be good or Santa won’t bring you any presents. Don’t eat sweets before bed or you’ll have nightmares. Others carry with them damage that can last a lifetime. Lies like being queer or trans excludes you from love or motherhood or fatherhood. Lies like gender is binary and absolute. Today Jake and Hannah Graf share their journey as individuals, as partners, and as a family.

    Go follow Jake and Hannah on IG and be sure to check out Mermaids!

    Everyone Deserves to Have a Superhero w/ Andrew Deman

    Everyone Deserves to Have a Superhero w/ Andrew Deman

    It wasn’t until the ‘80s that the Marvel Universe started to introduce queer characters to their stories and it was another 10 years before any characters were able to fully acknowledged their sexuality and actually say “I am gay.” Today, we are joined by Dr. Andrew Deman, a University lecturer and comic book expert to talk about how queerness was introduced into the comic book world and why many readers don’t give comic book creators they credit they deserve.

    Positive Framing w/ Zach Stafford

    Positive Framing w/ Zach Stafford

    When you think of the AIDS epidemic, a few words may pass through your mind. Illness, fear, death, and probably gay. After the first case was discovered in 1981, people began referring to the disease as “gay cancer” or “gay plague.” And it was seen as a death sentence. Even years later, after many improvements in science and medicine and a significantly longer life expectancy for HIV positive people, there is still a stigma around AIDS. Stories in media about AIDS and the queer community still usually end in tragedy and death. But people like Zach Stafford are fighting to break the stigma. He is a storyteller who is determined to spread positivity and hope to the community.

    Brooke Eden's Got No Choice!

    Brooke Eden's Got No Choice!

    Brooke Eden had been a toxic relationship with a man and she wasn’t in love. It wasn’t a fairytale but it was an experience she documented in her music. But then she met Hilary, her current girlfriend and her music took a turn. She wrote a series of love songs, you just listened to one, to tell the world that we don’t get to choose who we love, it just happens. Now, she’s ready to share her love with the world and on the way, transform people’s perception of country music for the better.

    Be sure to follow Brooke on IG.
