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.

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.

Priceless Host – Who Is The Host?

Once upon a time, there was a guest (Carol Shepherd) who wanted to interview the Host of The Priceless Podcast. It finally happened and you can listen to the result. Mihael was asking so many questions, listening to so many personal stories, it was time for him to spill the T. He is talking about his personal journey as well as the motivation for this podcast and how it all came to be.

Gay Pastor – Losing My Religion (A Journey Rarely Talked About)

We heard many journeys of people who were my guests about how they reconciled their sexuality and gender identity with faith. This is a different journey, one that took my guest from being a pastor to a life where faith doesn’t play a big role anymore. Though it is a topic often feard by people of faith, deconstruction of faith, becoming agnostic or even atheist is not uncommon. What better place to tackle it than the Priceless Podcast!

James Alison – The Church is not Conservative but Dishonest and Frightened

It is not so often we have the opportunity to meet an openly gay priest. Of course, the conversation got too interesting to keep it at one part interview. Even before we started to talk I was aware that this could become a two-part podcast. And so it did. It is time for the second part of the interview with James Alison. It starts with talking about pope Francis and the impression that he stands up for LGBT people and then it just seems like he changed his mind. There is a lot of work to do, but change won’t come from the top but from the people, the believers.

James Alison – The Ecclesiastical Mechanism is Run by the Closet (Being an Out Gay Priest)

Being an openly gay priest wasn’t always a challenge like it became in the 80ies. The Church had changed as did the attitude towards the whole topic of LGBT people. But James didn’t back out. James talks about his journey to becoming a priest and what is happening within the church. This episode gives some insights into what happened, what is happening, an interesting story of an encounter with Pope Francis… More to come in the second part with James Alison next Monday.
