A black doctor and white lesbian walk into a bar

Not many people get to have authentic conversations with people who are different, without filters and without being afraid of asking the wrong questions. Tyrone and I have known each other for over 12 years. We have built trust over those years to have honest conversations about race, sexuality and everything in between. We promise to ask all of the wrong questions you have been thinking about. We will give you our honest perspective and talk about some of the things that we discovered about how similar and how different we are.

7b: After Jubilee, forming one's own opinions and why don't we all just pull together?

While Tyrone continues to discuss his journey and how he was influenced by his upbringing, I do a little back of the envelope math and ask why don't all of the minorities pull together and take back the power? I figure out the answer. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bphdwl/message

6B: News flash! I didn't choose to be gay.

This surprises many folks who I meet. There is a belief that being gay is a choice. I usually ask "did you choose to be straight?" That said I did not grow up as a minority. I chose to come out. But I did not grow up prepared to be a minority. In fact, I didn't even know a gay person when I came out!!! I discuss how this impacted me and  turned me into an unsuspecting activist. We also discuss the importance of allies and being gay in the black community. Enjoy.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bphdwl/message
