NEW episode: Does “Passing” as Straight Automatically Equal “Safety?” -- Uncovering Internalized “Obias” and “Isms” in Our Attempts to Live Authentically.







In this Episode Rachel Dickson and Elaine Bracken discuss a series of thought-provoking and revealing questions about what it means to “pass” as straight while being gay.   Listen in as a most fascinating dialogue unfolds in which they both uncover some deeper truths behind navigating authenticity as a threat, feelings of guilt associated with expressing who you are, not status quo doubling as potentially unsafe, loss of privilege and what that may imply, and the discovery of some hidden internalized “obias” and “isms” along the way.
