Paul G, an artist and musician, tells their story of discovering their gender and sexuality through rejecting labels but then later embracing the labels "agender" and "pansexual".  They tell the story of their coming out process as well as their life-long repression.  What's it like to be gender non-conforming in a binary world?  What's it like to go from a "straight monogamous male" to an agender, pansexual, polyamorous person? 
  
We also talk about co-dependency, toxic masculinity, ayahuasca retreats, accepting diversity, weed + alcohol dependency, misconceptions about polyamory, body dysphoria, the paradox of the universe, Wu Wei (trying not to try), the importance of respect, non-violent communication, and SO much more.

Psalm Frond, a person who Kye grew up with, tells their story about growing up in a small town, being bullied, and coming to terms with queerness (which was maybe there all along).  Psalm and I were never friends and this is one of our first substantial conversations--we share SO many similarities!

Psalm and I also talk about ADHD; 
being labeled as "other" and "gay" by others (also just being called "gay" or "faggot" as an insult); 
not conforming; 
toxic environments; 
patriarchy, toxic masculinity, and the cult of masculinity; 
creating your own meaning; 
being home-schooled & alternative education; 
clothing style as personal & political activism; 
being bullied and in turn fighting back; 
the importance of having families/people with different values in your life; 
challenging your own gender & coming to terms with our own queerness or otherness; 
being misgendered & the "category crisis"; 
childhood queer experiences; 
privilege; 
being a willing (sometimes unknowingly) agent of patriarchy; 
and SO MUCH MORE!

This is a really cool episode (especially for me) and if you're queer or were ever an outsider, a weirdo, or a freak, you will connect with it!

 

Thanks for listening!
