Two Christian queers talking about life, culture, and current news.
Episode 15: The Intersectionality of the Stonewall Riots and BLM
Happy Pride! In the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests that are still happening all over the globe, we wanted to remind our fellow queers where Pride originated. We wouldn't have Pride without the likes of Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, or Storme DeLarverie, women of color who dedicated their lives to fighting for equality. You cannot discuss Pride without also discussing the systemic racism that targets queer black folx, especially our trans brothers and sisters. Rest in Peace Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Dominique Fells, and Riah Milton.

Episode 14: Ruth and Naomi Were Lesbian Lovers
CONTENT NOTE: At the 36:34 mark to the 39:19 mark we discuss the Jewish cultural ideas on homosexuality which came from their knowledge of assault upon children within other cultures. While we touched on it to educate where homophobia stemmed from within the Jewish and Christian faiths, we acknowledge that this could be triggering. Take care of yourself and skip that part if you need to. We are Black Lives Matter advocates and we stand with the black community in these troubling racist times. If you can, please donate to the LGBTQ Freedom Fund at www.lgbtqfund.org or The Bail Project. We have posted information on our instagram about the The Bail Project and The National Lawyers Guild. Did you know that there are lesbians in the direct line to Jesus? In this episode, we discuss the story of Ruth, her relationship with Naomi, and how some biblical scholars think that these two women were more than just companions.

Episode 13: You're Not Going to Hell if You Find Out You're a Scorpio
If you've ever been told that tarot cards, astrology, yoga, or crystals are demonic and evil, you might just be a product of evangelicalism. We break down these practices and why evangelicals hate them so much in an effort to shed light on the racism and control that runs unchecked behind church doors.

Episode 11: Dating as Trans and Nonbinary People
We welcome back Liam Vella of Support the T and welcome for the first time our friend Alexander Reid to join us in talking about dating as trans and nonbinary people.

Hello friends! We're back for part 2 of our Dating Outside series with our friend, Moe, to talk about being a queer Muslim and what it's like to date someone outside of Islam.
