Kind, Thoughtful, and Uplifting.

Really, really enjoy hearing Matthias engage his lovely guests about their faith, lives, and sexuality. He lets the guests speak their minds and share their hearts, and I always look forward to the new episodes. It is important for Christians -straight and LGBT- to hear each other's stories and how they are living out of their hopes and a shared faith for both encouragement and sense of community. Also: he features BI CHRISTIANS! Big deal and so affirming to our Christian siblings who are Bi. There are lots of resources about the cost of coming out and living authentically, but not always resources highlighting what the other side of that price looks like lived out as a healthy, faith filled life. What a blessing that this podcast straddles both. Definitely consider financially supporting this work. Thanks Matthias.

Amazing

Matthias is a great human. tbh I've never the guy, but trust me I got a sense for these things. I've really enjoyed listening to queerology for the past few months. I've worked my way through most of the epsiodes and I can tell you they are sweet to listen to. Each episode gets me thinking. I really do appreciate the work Matthias is doing through this podcast. To the people on the internet reading this: you should give this a listen it could do wonderful things for you.
