A new approach to understanding queer relationships

This podcast is awesome in that instead of pathologizing or problemetizing queer relationships, Keely and Melisa bring their expertise as relationship therapists to talk about what makes relationships work and celebrating the many and varied strengths within queer relationships! A great listen!

Queer joy is taking over

I am SO excited for this show! This is exactly what the queer community needs, a place to celebrate each other and our joys! A show that builds us up and connects us. Keeley has done it again, bringing relevant positive content that helps and heals with her witty soft demeanor it’s a show best enjoyed with a cup of coffee and a journal handy for all the pearls of wisdom and fun insights! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
