October is LGBT History Month, and October 11th is National Coming Out Day. What better time than now to share some of our coming out stories?
Join Tom, Ryan, and Jacob for a discussion on their coming out journeys, including how we first came out to ourselves, to God, and ultimately to others. We also give some coming out advice to those who are selectively out or still in the closet altogether.
We hope you enjoy our latest episode below: COMING OUT.
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.
We just launched a monthly BOOK CLUB for our $15/mo Patreon supporters! We recently gathered to discuss The Velvet Rage for October, and we’re reading Henri Nouwen’s The Return of the Prodigal Son for November. If you’re already signed up for this tier, get to reading! And if you still wish to join the fun, there’s still plenty of time to become a patron today.
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’re loving all the new 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: [email protected]
You can also write us the old-fashioned way! We gladly accept postcards, handwritten letters, WAY OUT SIGNS, and other nifty-gifties:
