Dr. Davison and the Gay Cure
This is one of the rarest stories of all: a man who publicly experiences a profound change of heart.
This is a profile of one of the gods of psychotherapy, who through a reckoning with his own work (oddly enough in the pages of Playboy magazine), becomes the first domino to fall in science’s ultimate disowning of the “gay cure.”

Mama Bears to the Rescue
What if you’re a mother who’s a leader in the Christian community and your kid comes out as gay? Who do you call? The Mama Bears.
This is the story of one woman who created a supergroup of like-minded mothers who faced down threats of excommunication because they refused to disown their kids, and will step in if you disown yours.

Garrard and the Story of Job
This is a modern day story of Job. It starts with Garrard Conley, a young gay kid growing up in rural Arkansas, trying to find a place to stand between a devout father and unforgiving God, and ends in a dramatic escape from an ex-gay camp and the smuggling out of a book that overturns an industry.

UnErased First Listen
Get the first listen to a new series revealing the hidden history of conversion therapy.
Such a great podcast. The do a fair amount of biblical studies and demonstrate that there IS room for the lgbtq+ community within religion.
Jesus said to love thy neighbor as thyself. He called this the second most important commandment.
I feel very sad for the racist and homophobic people out there as it seems that the hatred they spread is an outward representation of the hatred they feel for themselves 💔
I loved this episode because I’m a follower of Jesus. We are finally changing. Dump the Christian ‘religion’ if you must. Not Jesus! There are communities that love and follow Christ AND welcome LGBTQ folks.
I cried a little while listening
Great podcast binged the whole thing
