CW: Discussion of queer pain, homophobia, grief, and divorce

Happy 100th episode and Happy Pride, y’all! This solo episode is the first of five queer-focused episodes for Pridepalooza. In it, I’m telling the deeply personal story of my queer journey up to this point, including the story of my recent divorce. Divorce and queerness are both heavily stigmatized, and my hope is that by sharing my story openly, I can help at least one person feel less alone.
