On this episode, I once again sit down with Jeremiah Ripley, a fellow MFA Actor at Cal State LA, and this time we dig deep into matters of queer identity, politics, acceptance, awareness, representation, and more. Progress was made in the midterm elections, but our world still has work to do — and some of that work starts by letting ourselves and one another shine, just like mama Marianne Williamson taught us.

Hannah Gadsby’s show “Nanette” is available for streaming on Netflix and I highly, Highly, HIGHLY recommend it. It’s categorized as a comedy show, because Hannah has been working as a comedian for years, but this transcends comedy. This is a Truth in Storytelling master class, a raw and real and intensely human piece of work. It’s theatre and personal narrative and stand-up and it is so damn good. Life-changingly good, even.

Happy Pride Month 2018, y’all! We’re here, we’re queer, and we’re celebrating all month long! Today’s episode is a personal and heartfelt explosion of gratitude for the progress we’ve made, and a sobering look at how far we still have to go. We still live in a world where being openly LGBTQIA+ makes us a target–from anything to subtle microagressions to denial of human rights to murder. Each year we are faced with groups seeking to reverse the progress made towards LGBTQIA+ equality–and sometimes, those groups are within the highest forms of government and power.
Stay strong my family! Together we will carry this torch, keep it blazing bright, and we will illuminate the hearts of humanity!
