I think this podcast is really great, but I'm disappointed to hear that it will be exclusively behind a paywall on Luminary soon. I'm afraid I won't be joining you on the new platform.

Great episode. I love your podcast anyway but Mary Lambert was so open and vulnerable but in an empowered way that I was very moved. I am also a Christian and member of the LGBTQIA+, as well as the mom of a transwoman. I think it is important for people who are not "evangelical" to start being seen and heard. We also exist and we need to help heal the wounds of those who have been abused, abandoned, and disowned by their families and churches in the name of "Christianity". There is nothing Christian about pushing the community aside.

I absolutely love Ali. I have always been attracted to "the butch" women so when she is talking about how she saw herself in the character of Jo from Facts of Life I smiled because Jo was my first girl crush, many years before I knew that I was crushing. I was like 8 when the AIDS crisis hit and I remember the fear that was going through the country. Thank you for this podcast, I hope you continue
