    052: "HOMOSEXUAL" was never meant to be in the bible with Rocky Roggio

    Film Director-Rocky tells us about their movie “1946” which is based on a mistranslation of the word Homosexual in the Bible that only started appearing after the year 1946. That change in interpretation has caused hurt for many people for decades. In the podcast, Rocky takes us through their story of coming out and how they walked away from “it all” in terms of their religious upbringing, but how they just can’t seem to walk away from the truth behind this event of mistranslating the Bible back in 1946. Rocky tells us a little bit of what we will be able to see in the movie and the behind-the-scenes thoughts for the story. Showing empirical evidence and historical research a very thoughtful case is offered for combatting the hurt that the word Homosexual has caused in the Bible.

    Ep 049: The Non-Binary Unicorn Advocate - Harris Eddie Hill

    Ep 049: The Non-Binary Unicorn Advocate - Harris Eddie Hill

    Harris is a 30-something-year-old nonbinary person from Hertfordshire, UK. Harris realized they were trans/nonbinary in their mid-twenties and have since made the commitment to becoming the advocate they needed, but never had. In this episode, Harris takes us through their journey of growing up queer and the roller coaster of self-discovery. Follow along as they share their feelings about gender, sexuality and body image, and how that has shifted and changed over time. Harris and Nancy talk about regression, reincarnation and the stories and ideas around them, exploring the more spiritual side of things. Harris gives us a different outlook on living and experiencing life as we know it and the challenging but rewarding experience of growing out of preconceived ideas. As an entrepreneur and world-renowned LGBTQ+ advocate, Harris is dedicated to making every story as familiar to us as our own.

Tara@RMB ,

Best podcast!

Nance has such a lovely, smooth presence. As an interviewer, she is both comforting and inquisitive. I’m Tara Galeano and featured on episode #3. This was, and still is, one of my favorite podcast interviews. Nance is a natural. Love her.
Oh yes, I sang Diana Ross, not Donna Summers. My apologies.
