Being a Drag Queen – Defend, Speak Out, and Make ’em Laugh!

Drag has not always been celebrated like it is now. Drag was more an expression of protest to social norms and for many it meant to be free for a few hours. But it was dangerous. Today it is easier, it is more accessible. But how is it for a person of faith to do drag and when others find out they are a person of faith, or even more specific, Catholic?! Mark tells us his story of being Mark Ashton, but also his persona Matron. Listen to Mark and meet him as Mark and as Matron, find out the and see the difference and how he discovered Drag and the joy of making people laugh.

MCC – Reformation of the 20th Century?

In the very beginnings of the gay liberation movement, there was one church that recognised the need to be there for the outcasts of the time. Of course, not everything was rosy and the road ahead was a challenging one to travel on. But brave people took matters into their hands to create a church for all. There are still challenges to be mastered, there are changes to be made and there are shortcomings to recognise and resolve. Get to know how the Metropolitan Community Church started, what it had to do with the Pride Marches and how it took on the challenges since its beginnings. I talked to rev. dr. Axel Schwaigert about MCC about the good and hard.

LGBT+, Disability, and Me (Being Lesbian and Having a Disability)

Fighting discrimination against LGBT+ people, we often forget that there is discrimination even within the LGBT+ spaces. There are people living on the intersectionality of different identities that are out of our vision. Sometimes it is important to stop and look around and identify is some being left out. There are topics we need to discuss and one of those is being LGBT+ and living with a disability. Adding to that, we are often oblivious to the challenges they are facing and how the Bible is often used to dehumanise them and treat them as not being whole. Their LGBT+ identity is adding to their impression that wholeness is even more out of their reach. What was it like to grow up with a disability in a faith community? What can faith communities and groups do to make a better job in including people with disability? How do we approach the topic of disability? How can we do better? These and other questions I  discussed with Sian Jones.

Being a Refugee, Black, Trans and Muslim (and Still Aware of My Privileges)

How is it to live on the intersection of so many identities? Farah tells us her story of leaving her homeland to find a life without discrimination. Still, with all her identities it is hard to avoid it. Still, even with all the discrimination and challenges she tells us about her blessings and awareness of having privilege in some aspects. It is an encouraging story of finding a new life, new hope and using past experiences to help others around the world.

Being Orthodox – The Challenges and Possibilities for LGBT+ Inclusion

It has been long due to talk on the Priceless Podcast from the Orthodox perspective. Natallia Vasillevich is an Orthodox theologian and considers herself to be part of the LGBT+ identity. With her words, if you cant find a letter for her, she is the +. Through her personal story, she tells us about her journey of discovering herself in a very gender defined world and what she discovered in Orthodoxy for herself. She also talks about what it means to be a LGBT+ person in the Orthodox church, what the challenges are, but also the possibilities.

Holy Censorship or Mistranslation? – Love, Gender and Sexuality in the Bible (Book by Renato Lings)

Is it Censorship or Mistranslation? – Renato LIngs talks about how it all began. Many translators aren’t even aware how their mistranslation led to censorship. Renato also shares some examples of words in the bible that were mistranslated and what censorship we are facing even today. His approach to meet the Bible with questions and not answers is refreshing and inspiring.

Polyamory – Courage to Embrace What God has Joined Together

Polyamory is still an obscure topic. When meeting someone polyamorous we might be scared to ask questions because they can sound weird and clumsy. I’m happy to have had two guests who were willing to answer all those weird and clumsy questions. Being polyamorous, they were open to share their own stories, as well as challenges, joys, hopes…

Being Asexual – Strangers in a World of Eroticism Short (The Invisible Letter A)

Many letters of the LGBT+ acronym are still invisible. One of them is the letter A for Asexuality or As*. It is time to make people who identify with this letter more visible. Here is the beginning of including them and hearing one story but also information that helps us to better understand what this letter stands for and what it means. But this isn’t just about Asexuality as we learn also more about what it means to be Aromantic. As with many letters A is not just invisible, but there are also misconceptions that my guest is trying to dismantle. Enjoy.

Coming Out of a Mixed-Orientation Marriage Part 1 (Getting in, Through and Out)

Being in a mixed-orientation marriage is hard. It comes with many consequences. It affects your psychological, but also physical health.

Even today, people are in marriages with a person they are not physically and/or romantically attracted to. So, is there life after being in a mixed-orientation marriage and divorce?
