We're a storytelling tribe navigating issues of faith, homosexuality, and masculinity. Together. A place for content and a place for community. Our journey started many years ago on another blogging network and continues here today with a blog, podcast, and YouTube channel, along with a thriving Patreon community. Attracted to the same sex, we follow Jesus with the conviction of living under a traditional sexual ethic. We never chose our sexuality or our story, but we believe we’ve been chosen for one another in this story. So pull up a chair, or grab a walking stick or maybe a pen, and come journey with us!

    YC083: Covenant Friendship w/ Dr. Paul Eddy

    YC083: Covenant Friendship w/ Dr. Paul Eddy

    Dr. Paul Eddy of Bethel University joins us for our "season finale" of sorts to discuss covenant – particularly the covenant of friendship. Paul lays out the components of covenant, including terms and signs and witnesses, and translates this particular covenant to the grander scheme of God's eternal covenant with His people.


    Afterward Tom, Ryan, and Aaron "debrief" the discussion: do we desire covenant friendships in our lives, or how likely do they seem? What are the draws and challenges of covenant friendship, and should we as gay/SSA believers be concerned about the perception of such friendships?


    COMMENT ON THIS EPISODE
    Have you experienced the bond of covenant friendship? Do you desire covenant friendship, or does such a bond intimidate you or concern you at all?

    CC033: Tom & Nate Get Profane About Character Flaws!

    In our season finale Tom welcomes back the "Steve Martin" of YOB podcast guests, Nate! Nate catches us up on life as a traveling artist with his giant suitcase of chalk, and he spearheads a conversation on profanity. How have our Christian upbringings impacted our approach to profanity, and is it ever okay for believers to use certain words? We also dive into character flaws and whether we can ever fully overcome those certain traits that come hardest for us. Finally, will Nate ever come back for another YOB podcast? Stay tuned for the season finale cliffhanger!

    CC031: Tom & Kevin Wanna Go Back to Camp!

    Tom welcomes back Kevin into the proverbial podcast studio for the first time in YEARS! They discuss his recent departure from the Jewel of the Blue Ridge, and then they talk about camp the whole episode. Going to camp. Growing at camp. Working at camp. Even kids who used to go to our camps who now work at camp. They linger on this question: would we ever work (or go to?) camp again?!

    YC081: Pride Month

    YC081: Pride Month

    June is widely recognized as LGBT+ Pride Month. How do we as Jesus-followers engage with Pride Month – or is it even ours to engage with? How do we participate or spectate this month as gay/SSA believers with a traditional sexual ethic? Is there a place for us at this table and a space for us to be proud?


    Join Tom, Ryan, and Aaron for a discussion on Pride Month. Have we ever been to Pride, or would we ever go to Pride? And what would be our motivations for doing so?

Finally Knowing I'm Not Alone

After 7 months of discovering and catching up on all of the available podcasts I can finally write my review! I am forever grateful for this podcast, YOB, and Tom. Before discovering YOB I had never met any other Christian man who is SSA and pursues God's design for marriage. I felt so alone and frustrated, thinking I am some anomaly. But after I found YOB I have heard countless stories and voices similar to my own. I have never been so encouraged that I am not on this alien journey and that God does indeed have a plan for me and my story.

This podcast is both fun, challenging and inspiring. I absolutely love Tom's energy and hope to find a friend like him in my life. Tom, I think you're hilarious! The most impactful episode for me has been "Attraction". A part in that episode was shared that is a similar thought I have had myself but always been ashamed to voice outloud. Hearing someone else say it made me feel free from the shame and hopeful that I can be free from those thoughts as well.

I look forward to all that YOB continues to push out (still in 2017 as I catch up on blogs) for more inspiration to grow in my own journey.

The Community that I have Always Longed For.

For most of my life, I have struggled alone with my sexuality, having been raised in an environment that believed this subject was taboo and shameful. It wouldn't be until my college years and beyond that God would reveal more about how my sexuality and my faith can be reconciled. Despite that blessing, I still felt alone in the church, having never met others who struggled as I did.  Last year, a dear friend introduced me to Your Other Brothers during a dark time in my life. Since then, I have read countless stories from YoB, and I don't feel alone anymore. I now know that I have a whole community of brothers who share the same struggles and have similar stories as I do. Thank you for providing this incredible community of brothers, especially for those of us who have always felt like we were alone. YoB is truly a blessing in my life and the community that I have always longed for. God bless ya'll as you continue to share your stories and your vulnerability with the world.

Fraternity

I’m thankful I am able to listen in and feel like a part of a community that is vulnerable and talks about things that are important to my life. The show is fun, thought provoking and hope-driven.
