Biti Gay, Rastavljen, Umirovljen Pastor

Paul’s story is heartbreaking but full of optimism at the same time. Living in a time where being gay was absolutely taboo. He was pastoring people through the AIDS crisis. As a pastor he was in search of how to put his passion for ministry into practice and be openly gay. But his passion for ministry had a cost. One being his marriage. Paul tells his story with such honesty and vulnerability. He lives his truth and shares it with all of us with an optimism that can only be described as inspirational.

Četrdeset godina zajedno – Ljubav je malo gore, malo dolje

Relationships are a fragile thing. At the same time, they can be such a big resource of inspiration and strength. As my guests said ‘Love is a roller coaster.’ It is beautiful, but not always easy. Sometimes we need to keep in mind that there is an amazing view, once we manage to climb the mountain. But, of course, there are certain qualities relationships need to sustain. Respect, an open hand and some friends along the way. Unfortunately, there is no recipe for a long-lasting relationship, but hearing someones story can be a huge encouragement and inspiration.

Tko su Rainbow Pilgrims of Faith?

The World Council of Churches is a world fellowship of churches. Many of those are still very conservative and not near any inclusion of many people on the margins. This includes LGBTIQ people. An international group is dedicating their time and energy that the voices of LGBTIQ people are heard within this fellowship. Every 7 to 8 years an international conference takes place where this group, called Rainbow Pilgrims of faith try to get closer to the delegates of different churches, share stories and invite them to different happenings. This episodes brings the work of those people closer to you.

Nisam Napustio Crkvu, Istjeran sam

Moram priznati, imam pozitivnu predrasudu prema razvijenim zemljama da je LGBT+ osobama lako. Pričajući s ljudima iz tih zemalja posvjestilo me da to nije istina. Oliver priča o svojoj procesu prihvaćanja sebe kao trans osobe. Priča o svojim fizicičkim i psihičkim izazovima te svojem iskustvu i boli koju mu je nanijela crkva. Iako je već iskusio djelomično iscjeljenje, još uvijek se bori s unutarnjim glasovima prošlosti.

Predsjednica Sinode – Crkva će se Promijeniti

Gledajući što se događa unutar Katoličke vrkve, lako se možemo osjećati obeshrabreno. Čini se da se nikada neće promijeniti. Iako ima nekog napretka, izgleda da se i vraća unazad. Razgovarajući s prvom ženom koja je predsjednica sinode u Zuriche me ohrabrilo zbog nekoliko razloga. Prvi je vidjeti da je žena na vrhu vijeća. Drugi, bori se na više fronti za prava raznih ljudi. No, pokazuje na da crkva može biti drugačija i da je crkvi moguće promijeniti se i da se može maknuti iz starog sustava hijerarhijskog funkcioniranja Rimokatoličke crkve. Ona je glas diskriminiranih i zauzima se za pravedniju crkvu s podjeljenom moći.

Biti Interspolna osoba – Nemati Pravo na Izbor

Prije nego što počnem pisati o samom potkastu, želim podijeliti koliko sam bio taknut za vrijeme cijelog intervjua. Small Luk, njena ranjivost pri dijeljenju svoje priče, njenog iskustva i motivacije da bi pomogla interspolnim osoboma širom svijeta je insprirajuća. Teško mi je vjerovati da će ijedna osoba ostati ravnodušna. Small ulazi u dubinu detalja onogo što je doživjela kao interspolna osoba i u tome kako se osjeća što su drugi donosili udluku o tome to će biti. Preporučam vam da pogledate punu verziju s obzirom da će te čuti samo dio priče onoga što je prošla te doživjeti samo dio emocije i dubine u koje ulazi.

Gay Teolog – Nemoj Sanjati, Budi!

European Forum of LGBT Christian groups je svoju godišnju konferenciju imao u Zurichu, Švicarskoj, gdje sa imao priliku razgovarati s nekoliko ljudi. Jedan od njih jebio Csongor Kozma tko je direktor Pavlove Akademije. Pavlova Akademija je Katolički centar za dijalog, no, direktor je gej, s mužem i kćerkom. Htio sam znati kako to funkcionira, koji su izazovi i koliko je prihvaćen kao otvoreni obiteljski čovjek dugine obitelji. Kao teolog s fokusom na etiku, htio sam znati koliko je njegov identite utjecao na njegov izbor zvanja. No, Csongor je mnogo više od toga. Želiš saznati? Pogledaj!

Biti Drag Queen – Brani, Zauzmi se i nasmij ih!

Drag nastupi se nisu oduvijek slavili kao danas. Drag je u prošlosti više bio izraz prosvjeda protiv društvenih normi. Za mnoge je to značilo biti slobodan na par sati. No, bilo je opasno. Danas je lakše, pristupačnije. No, kako je baviti se dragom za osobu vjere, još k tome, Katoličke?! Mark priča svoju priču o sebi, ali i svojoj personi Matron. Poslušaj Marka te ga upoznaj kao Marka i Matron. Vidi razliku i kako je otkrio Drag i radost u nasmijavanju ljudi.
