Episode 13A is titled “50 Shades of Gay.”
In this episode I provide a review of the 50 Shades of Grey movie that came out a while back and that has been controversial, even in the LGBT community. Was this movie really a negative depiction of women? I talk about different kinds of gay and straight marriage including traditional marriage, Biblical marriage, and the history of marriage and gay commitments. Should the LGBT community really be supporting “traditional” marriage as an institution? Will this have a negative effect on folks in alternative relationship structures? Is Biblical marriage really what people think it is? Were marriages of the past really about love and romance? What types of formalized homosexual commitments existed in ancient cultures?
There’s also a news update and some cool music and sound clips throughout the episode. There’s also an update on the LGBT werewolf book I’m writing including how to get a draft copy before the completed version goes on sale.
Part 2 of this episode will be coming out hopefully sometime this winter. I’ll be talking about different relationship structures for gay and bi men including BDSM relationships, polyamory, intergenerational relationships, and more.
