Flame On :: Episode 306 :: Gay Life: The Queer Ideal Dream
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
Did you ever drift off when you were young and dream about what your life would be like when you were older? Did that ideal dream change as you began to accept your queerness? As you learn more about who you are, it’s always easy to look back and wish you could do it all over again, but is that really the best thing that could happen? Load up this new volume of Now That’s What I Call Gay Life and get ready to hop in the time machine!
The dog days of summer have had us sweating, but BeeJay is ready to take over the host chair and lead another discussion in our Now That’s What I Call Gay Life series. Joined by Pat Da Bear, BeeJay posits the question, what is your ideal life and future and how has that changed over time? In this very intimate discussion the boys open up about what life was like for them as young queer folks and how the heteronormative structure of their worlds shaped their ideal future and how coming to terms with being gay changed their thoughts about what that future actually looks like. They also share stories about their queer coming of age, whether or not they had a guide on their journey and how they feel that could have changed their path, and whether or not they would want to go back in time and change their journey with the knowledge they have now. It’s a super deep and open conversation and they’d love to hear about your ideal future in the comments.
Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON!
