  • Such a great place to hear others stories and recognize our need to love and support each other

    Richard is a terrific host and has done an excellent job gathering a wide variety of voices and making this podcast a safe space. There aren’t many of those out there for gay men and I’m so grateful to learn from my band of brothers (and sisters) in Christ. Thank you for the great work you’re doing Richard!

  • Continuing to listen, learn snd love

    Richard Ostler’s books are great. The podcasts are additional great resources for those in the LGBTQ+ community, their families and allies, and those who want to learn more in order to support these children of our Heavenly Father. You will find much to contemplate on being of one heart and one mind and becoming a Zion people.

  • Confusing

    Richard Ostler tries to understand the LGBTQ community but at the same time panders to his audience. This podcast unfortunately will give people the impression that the Church will some day change its doctrine on sexuality. Richard is a great example of someone who is trying to help but at the same time condoning actions that are contrary to Christ’s teachings.
