LGBT Stories is a podcast that aims to illuminate the intimate lives of LGBTQ people from around the world as a way to light a path toward acceptance among all people.

We believe that the best way to instill compassion in the anti-LGBT community is by helping all people relate to the experiences of the LGBTQ community. Over time we hope to help these all people not only to accept LGBTQ people as a community but as individual humans, just as we all are, ourselves. It is only from that point that our society can move forward as a fully integrated and united force.

LGBT Stories presents real stories of LGBTQ people with the purpose of creating opportunities for those who are less accepting of the community to relate to our guests as their fellow humans, recognize when past judgments about LGBT people have been unfair or inaccurate, and better understand the community as a whole. The podcast also creates a community for people who identify as LGBTQ to commune as one - crafting friendships and allies with each other.

These stories document the struggles, questions, triumphs, and epiphanies that real LGBTQ people face as they explore their true identities in relation to the public, their friends and families, and their own inner realities. This includes not only our guests' decisions to come out but -- even more importantly -- what life is like for them every day.

At the core of LGBT Stories is the belief that understanding others not only facilitates acceptance but goes even further by allowing us to identify with each other's views, emotions, and beliefs and, in the end, become truly united.

This morning I woke up to something pretty amazing. LGBT Stories has officially passed 100,000 downloads across iTunes, Spotify, and the other podcast platforms out there.

December will be 2 years that I’ve been producing this show, there have been ups and downs, I’ve questioned a lot, and tried to “do the most viable thing” for the show at times. However, there is one thing that this journey has taught me, always go back home. Any time I’ve wondered what direction I should go in regards to the show I’ve always reminded myself to BE AUTHENTIC, just like I set out to do from the very beginning. It’s awesome how that’s never steered me wrong. I’m very happy with this success and I am looking forward to our new “First Kiss Friday” segment of the show (those details are to come), as well as the all-around growth that’s currently happening with all things LGBT Stories! So... cheers to 100k, and time to go grab 200k! Thank you, everyone, who listens, literally can’t do this without your ears.
