Religion and politics are two topics that we are told that we should avoid discussing, but in this episode of Nathan OUTloud I am facing them both head-on.

The Season Two premiere of Nathan OUTloud comes about eight years since the last episode was released. I set aside the light and cheery tone of previous episodes to discuss the real issues being faced by the LGBTQ+ community at the hands of organized religion and the Republican Party. I share my experience of alienation and gaslighting from growing up in a Mormon and Republican family.

Links to articles and movies that I mention in the episode:

“The Mormon Church Is Gaslighting the LGBTQ+ Community” by Kat Kellermeyer:

“11 Warning Signs of Gaslighting” by Stephanie A. Sarkis Ph.D.:
