467. Realizing Sexuality Through Romance with Tara Scott

  • by

Tara joins me to talk about how reading lesbian romances helped them realize their sexuality after having grown up in a very conservative religious environment.

Side trips include Robin Hood in many varieties, “Don’t Stop Believing,” and movies to watch while kinda stoned.

Romances help people understand a lot of aspects of themselves, and I love hearing about how reading has helped Tara live more authentically.

TW/CW: we talk about growing up queer in a conservative church environment, the specter of conversion therapy, and the discovery of mass graves at Indigenous residential schools.
