“Side A” people follow Jesus with an affirming position on same-sex sexual relationships. As Jesus-followers from a “Side B” (traditional) position on marriage and sexuality, is it difficult or effortless to forge friendships with folks who are Side A? Join Tom, Dean, and Matt for a discussion on their experiences with Side A friendships: both with friends who started out Side A and also with friends who started out Side B – only for them to change to Side A.

Can Side B-turned-A friendships survive? How do we build healthy Side A friendships? We hope you enjoy our latest episode below: “SIDE A” FRIENDS.

Because we received such a positive response from our new short-form podcast, the YOB ConvoCast, we’ve launched a goal on Patreon: let’s hit 200 patrons, and we’ll produce two ConvoCasts every month! That means that along with two YOBcasts each month, we’ll either produce a short-form and a long-form podcast for your listening consumption every single week.

YOB still exists after all these years thanks to our 185+ faithful patrons on Patreon. If you find value in this podcast and the greater community of Your Other Brothers, would you consider pledging monthly to our cause? Just $5/month grants you access to our secret Facebook group and our monthly bonus podcast, The YOBaLOGUE — full of bloopers, tangents, and even some serious content cut from each public episode.
We’d love to start featuring more listener calls! Call the YOB number any time to ask us a question or tell us a story; we’d love to feature your voice on an upcoming episode. Feel free to introduce yourself or remain anonymous.

You can call us 24/7 at 706.389.8009. We’d really love to hear from you. Prefer to get in touch privately? Shoot us an email: podcast@yourotherbrothers.com

You can also write us the old-fashioned way! We gladly accept postcards, handwritten letters, COINS, and other nifty-gifties:

Do you have any “Side A” friends as a “Side “B” (or X, Y, SSA, etc.) follower of Jesus? Why or why not? Have you lost any fellow “Side B” friends to a Side A theology, or have you maintained and built those friendships despite the new theological differences?



About the Author

  • Yet another good podcast guys. Shout out to Matt for also being an 8 and saying get your life together. Oh how fun it is to tell people that. I do have a couple Side A friends, one of which I’ve known and been friends with for about 20 years now. She only came out as Side A about 4 years again or so, but that hasn’t changed my feelings towards her. I have a really close friend who was on the fence, but thankfully decided to stick with staying Side B, even after being in and ending a relationship with another guy for 3 years. As for me, if I had to chose a label, it would be SSA, not gay since I want what Dean has, a wife and kid. Very jealous of that by the way, sir. Perhaps one day. Thankfully my experiences with Side A folks have been good, never bashed others for deciding on a different outlook. And Dean, Destiny’s Child, really?
