Bi Any Means Podcast #117: Life in a Pentecostal Cult with Devyn Lennex

My guest for today is my friend Devyn Lennex. They are 20-something non-binary person who grew up in an extremely conservative Pentecostal cult where they had to wear skirts and couldn’t go anywhere that served alcohol. At 17, they were in what was basically an arranged marriage, but got out at 19 and began their journey to self-discovery and self-agency. So today we’re going to hear Devyn’s story.

Bi Any Means Podcast #114: Activist Theology with Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza

My guest for today is Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, a radical trans queer Latinx public theologian. Here’s what their bio says: “Knowing intimately that the borderlands are a place of learning and growth, Robyn draws on their identity and heritage as a Transqueer Latinx in everything that they do. From doubt to divine and everywhere in between, their call as an activist-theologian demands the vision to disrupt hegemony and colonialist structures of multi-layered oppressions. As an anti-oppression, anti-racist, non-binary Trans*gressive Latinx, Robyn takes seriously their call as an activist theologian and ethicist to bridge together theories and practices that result in communities responding to pressing social concerns. Robyn sees this work as a life-orienting vocation, deeply committed to translating theory to action, and embedded in re-imagining our moral horizon to one which privileges a politics of radical difference.” Which is why Robyn’s joining me today to talk about everything they do!

Plus, we talk about Hurricane Harvey, how it’s all the queers’ fault, why it took so damn long for Joel Osteen to open up his church as a shelter, and how people can help.

Bi Any Means Podcast #96: #NormalizeAtheism with Mel Rice

My guest for today is Mel Rice, operations manager for the Normalize Atheism Campaign. The Normalize Atheism Campaign was created by Mark Nebo of Be Secular as a way to destigmatize atheism back in 2014, but recently joined forces with Sincere Kirabo and Steve Shives to reinvigorate it. So today we’re going to talk to Mel about the campaign, her role there, and her backstory.

As a head’s up, part of Mel’s story involves being a domestic violence survivor, so listener discretion is advised. See? I issued a trigger warning, and nobody’s free speech got taken away. Maybe I’m not doing it right.
