Rank #1: I Am Bisexual - Michael's Story

Podcast cover
Read more

The B in LGBT… Bisexual.

Today Michael tells a story of what he says is “…being free from any specific way of loving someone”, bi-sexual.

In my opinion, I believe that bi-sexuality is the most thrown around identifier in the acronym LGBT. It’s the one identifier that society is far more accepting of when a woman identifies as so… it is fine, in a way it almost considers “hot, or sexy”. On the other hand, when a man identifies as bi-sexual they get oftentimes labeled as straight-up gay (an very much so in a negative connotation). So while many men who are bi-sexual greatly enjoy male on male sex they are more than often made to be shamed for it, therefore resulting in them remaining closest. That is why I am so pleased to share Michaels story with you today.

Finding My Inner Self - James Lucas

Today's guest is someone I've known for I'd say somewhere around 3 years now. His name is James Lucas, and he and I are actually roommates.

When I first met James, he had been sharing with me and a few mutual friends different stories of his life and some of the struggles that he had been experiencing. I couldn't help but more personally introduce myself to him, as we seemed to have a lot in common. I can remember just being there to let him know that if he wanted some support, it was here for him. That was the start of a beautiful friendship.

I have wanted James to share his story on the show for a few years now; however, the timing for him just hadn't been right. And now, finally, my friend is opening up with you all his incredible story.

James tells us what it was like growing up gay on a British island, what it felt like when his father passed away when James was in his early 20's, and how hiding from the world in the safety of his childish home negatively impacted his ability to open up intimately, later in life. Well - until now, that is. Today you'll see how put-together James has become and how he is thriving - allowing himself to try new things and address the reasons why he lived in so much isolation growing up.

James is someone that I know loves being of service to others in need and sees the value of a Friday evening at home watching Netflix with his beautiful dog. If you ask me, he has done an incredible job balancing his natural tendency to retreat with the part of his heart that loves supporting others - in whatever way he can.

Rank #6: Me. #4 - Kevin's Story

Podcast cover
Read more
Support LGBT Stories by donating here www.ourlgbtstories.com     Today we pick back up, on this journey of mine with me telling you a more about my first ever sorta real relationship with a man. Well, for me, at least it was real. The joy, excitement, fantasy, sadness, pain, and sorrow all were as real as they could get. I was a young, not even 20-year-old boy at the time, who thought he found the love of his life. Lord, was I wrong.   As I mentioned in last week's episode, Travis (who's name isn't really Travis) and I met via the website, craigslist.com. The first day that we met, we had sex (which was also the first time I ever had anal sex with anyone).  If you would like to hear more about that, I implore you to go listen to last week's episode "Me. #3". Okay, moving on...   I think it's safe to say that just about everyone, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity falls hard for the first person that they have sex with. And that's what happened to me. Looking back, it is clear that Travis and I had two very different agendas.   See, he was so hot and cold. One day he wanted me over for a hot piece of ass, and the next, he would act like he didn't even know me, or more like, I was a bother to him. Meanwhile, here I am, all nieve just wanting to get married and run off into the sunset. I think the power dynamic in age was a major factor in all this.   The friendship/relationship continued into something where I knew what to expect. When Travis called, I would go running. Why, because I was "in love." Kids, this isn't, love. This is a childhood infatuation. I am not saying that the things I was feeling at the time were not valid and did not feel real, because they were, and did. But it wasn't at all, love.   Love is feeling completely and utterly supported. It's feeling valued and respected. Love is when you know that you can show up as you are to a relationship, and your partner encourages you to be just that, and even wants more of that from you. Love is in the moments of difficulty when things get hard, and you're not shamed for your feelings, but embraced for having feelings and living in the honesty of them. Love is peaceful. It is looking into someone's eyes when you speak to them, desiring their intimacy. Love is, unknowing - yet willing. Love is unconditional.   What I had with Travis was not... love.   He and I would start to spend more time together. We went from spending time only in his house to random outings, sometimes stopping by his work for coffee (he worked at Starbucks). Ew... is this some unconscious reason for my infatuation with Starbucks? Yeah, another thing I need to look at. Maryland isn't all that amazing when you're that age, but then again, where, in America, is. We would go shopping at Target or out to lunch, simple things. There was a time when we were driving in his car, he had a Saturn Vue (kids the company went under, oh the foreshadowing imagery).   I finally got the nerve to hold his hand. It probably took everything in me. Remember, at this point, I'm really nothing more than a side piece. But the fact that we were hanging out in public more started to make me feel like maybe he was actually into me? So we are sitting there, he is driving, I'm in the passenger seat, and I reach over to grab his hand, and when mine touches his, he pulls away and says, "Kevin, no." I was so embarrassed. But I did what I did so well. I stayed small and said, "Okay," and went on like it didn't bother me. But it did. His constant toying with my heart, pulling me in, and pushing me away really was breaking me inside. But, little Kevin, he just wanted to be loved. All he wanted was to feel love. So I put a smile back on my face and went about the day together.    Here is where things take a major turn for Travis and me. One day I get a call from him asking me if I wanted to go to an old military fort that is in Baltimore. It's no longer used, but it a historical land that people go and visit. You can't grow up in Maryland (one of the first 13 colonies) and not be a patriot. Of course, I said yes and headed over to his house. We jump in his car and head out for the day. Something was so different. Like really different. Travis was warmer, kinder, all around, more interested in me. On the way there, he grabbed and held my hand. WHAT! Wait a minute, what is happening? The man whom I have been drooling over and fucking for how many months now; was actually holding my hand; as we are on our way out to cute day adventure? OMG, I can finally die now... but not really cause I want more.   Okay, so we get there right. We park and start walking around, looking at the ruins and etc. Actually, it was pretty cool, old cannons, and jail cells. It was something out of a history book. Then literally, the best moment of my entire life up until this point happens. And any LGBTQ person will most likely agree with me. We decide to sit down on this small hill out in the open. Its a beautiful summer day in Maryland to which made it all so much better. I sit down, and Travis comes up from behind me and sort gets on his knees and then wraps his arms around me, just holding me. Holy shit... every fiber of my body is going crazy. For the first time in my life, I am living in my truth OUT IN PUBLIC. And I didn't care who saw. All that matter was that moment of pure bliss. Then, he gets up and says, "Let's go." Boom, that was it. It was all over. From there, I believe we stopped at McDonald's and got lunch, and honestly, I don't remember the rest of the day. This was the last time I remember being intimate with Travis.   Travis got cold again. Calls were not as frequent, and I do think that as that behavior surfaced again, I got tired of the back and forth. I have to be honest, I am not really the type of person that lets things go. Well, at 33, I am much more willing to now in life, but at that time, not so much. Maybe it was just life letting me know things with Travis, and I was over. It was then that things with my church were falling apart and that I end up moving to Pennsylvania. As I mentioned before, being me being in PA and him being in MD was just too much to maintain. So, we feel apart, and I didn't hear from him again until I contacted him in my mid-twenties.   And that's it for this week. Next week, I'll pick back up in Florida. A place where I was finally a 100% out gay man living on his own, doing whatever he wanted. Sound fun, right? Well, don't be fooled. I was young. And dumb. To be continued.

Rank #7: For The Parents - Rick's Story

Podcast cover

Shop and Donate to LGBT Stories

www.ourlgbtstories.com

Coming out to your friends and family is never really that amazing of a thing. It's exhausting and oftentimes terrifying. If you're lucky, you were raised in a family that expressed emotions and create space for you to be just as you are, which made it easy for you to "come out."  If that was you, damn, I am happy for you! However, for many others, that was not their experience. For some who haven't come out yet, they continue to operate in a space where they fear the worse.   Today's guest is Rick. Rick's coming out experience was pretty pleasant and "easy." He is going to share with you what it was like for him to tell his family that he is gay and how that lead him on a path to writing his book, "Rainbow Relatives - Real World Stories and Advice on How To Talk to Kids about LGBTQ+ Families and Friends."   Talking to children about this topic is essential. I think that parents need to educate themselves more on the LGBTQ community. Your kids, whether you like it or not, are going to interact with LGBTQ people throughout their lives. Many of your children are going to most likely, at some point, come out at LGBTQ in their lifetime. Why not get in front of it sooner? If you could normalize and make this life at all easier for your children, would you not do that?   It's time to start having conversations with children about sexuality and gender far sooner than we are. There is so much evidence that kids are aware of their sexuality much sooner than we begin educating them on the subject. We all know that by the time we are talking about it with them, it's too late. The damage is often already done. And this is why I think books like Rick's are so important.

 The author is also the writer and producer of the film Walk A Mile In My Pradas, starring Tom Arnold, Dee Wallace, and Bruce Vilanch and it is on Amazon Prime at http://tinyurl.com/gnwsehl

Today we are sharing a story from a man named, Niko. He is a transgender man, who lives in the mid-west, in Kansas. You know, our show only has a few people who are trans that have told their stories and that has differently been something on my mind.

It is very important for me to make sure that we create a show that is a reflection of the entire LGBTQ community. So when Niko reach out to me and told me about who he is, and his story, I was thrilled.

And then, as I listened and heard him explain how many times he went through learning who he is, in all very different ways, I was just so unlike anything I have ever had to experience.

Rank #13: Elton's Struggle With His Immigrant Parents

Podcast cover
Read more

www.harrys.com/lgbt

I did not grow up with immigrant parents, well, technically they did immigrate here from Haiti but they were so young when they came here that they are extremely assimilated. I can’t really claim that I know what it’s like to have parents whose ideologies and morals are so grounded in the ways of their home country.

That's why while I can, of course, relate to what its like to be gay and grow up in America, I have not the slightest clue as to the added difficulties that people like our guest today go through, being gay and having immigrated parents who simply WILL NOT accept this sort of “Lifestyle”.

And please note. I am not saying that LGBTQ people who have immigrant parents have it “harder” than those of us whose parents were born in America. This episode is simply to point out the differences and to take a look at those differences because no one's story is the same but everyone’s story deserves to be told.

As we continue to work this month with “Harry’s” and support them in their work to donate the profits of their Shave With Pride kit to The Trevor Project I’ve decided that we should have their LGBTQ employees on the show.

This is how I met, Elton. Elton was raised by immigrant parents and tirelessly struggled to gain the acceptance of his parents, more specifically his mother, all his life. I hope for those of you who are in similar situations as Elton find a sense of comfort in knowing that there are millions of other LGBTQ people who’ve experienced or are currently experiencing what you are.

And those of us who did not, I truly hope that we allow ourselves to see the diversity that exists within our community. I hope this we view this as yet another way that we can support and uplift our community as a whole.

Hannah is a heterosexual woman, and she is sharing her first kiss story on the show today! Some of you might ask why she is doing this. Or why we have a straight person on this show? Well, "LGBT Stories" is all about inclusion and sharing everyday experiences in hopes of unity two communities - the LGBTQ community and the heterosexual community.   We feel that by bringing on straight people to the show from time to time that it'll help display our commonalities. I mean, we all cry, laugh, experience hardships, and joy, right? Well, why not talk about this all with everyone?   Rather than preaching inclusion, we are walking the talk!

This episode is rated explicit. If you are under the age of 18, DO NOT LISTEN to this episode. There is mention of sexual assault as well as descriptions of sexual activities. This episode is only for adults over the age of 18.

If you would like to support our mission to spread the stories of the LGBTQ+ community around the world, please do us a favor and donate as little as $5 to us. It helps keep the lights on around here. No really, all donations go back into promotion and the overall running of this big ship. Donate To LGBT Stories here http://bit.ly/donatelgbtstories thanks! It's no secret that many young boys are victims of sexual assault growing up. I'm not sure of the exact numbers; however, I would assume that more often than not, many of these young men go on never to speak a single word of the assault. Well, that is not what Sean Segerstrom did. From the age of only four years, old Sean experienced sexual assault from a family member and then a close family friend. This would continue until his late teenage years. Sean explains that he thought that that is how people show each other that they love them. It's these experience that causes Sean some of the struggles that he still battles today. Although these are real struggles, finding any positivity in a story such as this can be very uncomfortable, there has been a silver lining. Sean explains how he found his chosen family. He speaks about the people that, while not blood related to him, are his family. Those who sat with him in some of his darkest moments in life without an ounce of judgment. These are the people who've always made him feel safe. Sean does a beautiful job helping the audience know that they, too, can find their chosen family! I hope that those of you whom Sean mentioned are listening to today's episode. You deserve to hear the kind things he said about you all. The love he has for you all is undeniable. Thanks, Sean, for sharing your message and story with the world. We need more people like you not only to stand up against the injustices that they face but to also speak to the younger generations that are coming up after us. Young people, we need you guys to know that you're not alone. While it might feel that way now, it will not always be this way. There is a natural progression of life that happens and often its an uncomfortable growing pain that we don't at the moment often understand. The beautiful thing about it is if we take a step back and surrender control to something greater than ourselves, then, the possibilities of our life are endless and bountiful!

If you can not remember I began sharing my life story through this segment called, “Me”. It's a fairly new segment of the show only beginning just before we left for our hiatus. Our show LGBT Stories has always been a space where people can come on the show and discuss their lives. And though I was present on all episodes I didn’t ever really spend much time talking about who I am and how this show even got started. Everything about it stems from me. It’s all sorta my brainchild. My own life brought me to the idea of a podcast. It’s all those small pieces that brought me to a larger picture of LGBT Stories.

So today, we are going to continue that story. If you have not listened to “Me. episodes 1-4” I HIGHLY encourage you to go listen to them. This is a story that is factual and is best followed in order.

Here is a brief recap… I was raised in Maryland, was outed when I was 19 by my brothers, but also sorta by MySpace. Then again at my church at the time and was kicked out. That’s when I met my first serious crush who we are calling, Travis. That didn’t work out because he was an ass, and then I ended up moving to PA.

PA didn’t last any longer than a month because I couldn’t deal with cornfields and well… cornfields. So I moved with my brother and his wife to Sarasota Florida. And that brings us to today’s episode.
