Phil Samba: I Am Not a Stereotype
1 hr 5 min

At just 28, Phil Samba is already a legend. When he writes, we read and when he speaks, we listen. His openness about both his sexuality and his sexual health means he’s often inundated by other young Black men who want to know more about him — how he’s cultivated his openness, how he’s come out and how he’s become the young man he is. Phil is already miles beyond where I was at 28 and sitting in conversation with him reveals a man who is leaning into his greatness. We speak on our relationships with our parents, the role education and representation plays in preventing homophobic beliefs taking hold — even within ourselves — and finding our strength outside of the prescribed strength tropes so closely associated to Black people.

I highly recommend you follow Phil Samba on Twitter: @idiosyncraticXL

Community w/ Kristen Kaza - Ep. 159
We all want it, we all need it, but sometimes, we're not quite sure how to find it. That's why people like Kristen Kaza dedicate their lives to building community through events and creating "brave spaces" for LGBTQIA folks. Kristen is the party guru, event planner, and activist behind Reunion Chicago, Chicago’s beloved queer dance party Slo 'Mo, and more. She has worked on holding space and building events and gatherings where the LGBTQIA community can connect with, enjoy, and sometimes, challenge each other. We talk about how our communities are changing, and how COVID has shifted the way we connect. Plus, Melody implores our listeners to shed light on the Beaver festival, while Carolyn attempts to save her queer cred by binging gay movies. Finally, we answer a question from a baby gay with an adorable crush. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.
