OUTthink Now Has a Home On Facebook You mean it hasn’t been there all along? I know! Right! So we’ve fixed that and you can now OUTthink has it’s very own page on Facebook along with the Release Hypnosis Facebook page. You now have the option to like one or the other, or both! Each podcast will also be uploaded against the Facebook page to make it easier for you to find. Of course, if you enjoy the podcasts, why not feel free to share the Facebook page with your friends and encourage them to give it a LIKE so they can be informed when each new fortnightly podcast is published. We’ve covered a wide range of topics already since starting in November last year and our commitment is to making the podcast even more diverse and even controversial topics. Having said that, if you have a story that you think is worth sharing and that may help others within the LGBT community, then why not drop me a line so that we can chat further and see if we can get your story out there with OUTthink.

Midsumma Carnival: Time To Celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride

By | LGBTQI, OUTthink, Shame | No Comments

Midsumma Carnival: Time To Celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride   Tomorrow will see the 30th Midsumma Festival open with the annual Carnival in Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne. Each Midsumma is a great opportunity for the Melbourne Gay and Lesbian community to get together, to connect and to show pride for who they are. But why is pride so important? The opposite of pride When you ask someone what the opposite of pride is, they’ll often tell you that it is shame. Most people within the LGBT community know what it is like to grow up feeling shame. As young kids, we innately know that there was something different about us to the other boys and girls although we found it hard to put our finger on what it exactly was. Worst of all, the other boys and girls seem to know too. As we got older and the hormones began to do their thing, we began to realise that our own sexual awakening was different to our peers as well. In some cases, we may find this experience so uncomfortable that we disconnect with our sexual identity, almost becoming non-sexual. I can recall my own awkward years of not really feeling ‘anything much’…

Within those conversations, there are stories of shame, stigma, alienation, abandonment and, most importantly, self-acceptance and self-love. These are stories of people who have been thrown into some unexpected and difficult situations and have managed to make their way to acceptance, understanding, empathy and pride. The reason why I wanted to do this podcast was simple; people often don’t put mental health into the spotlight, let alone some of the added issues that come with belonging to the LGBTQIA community. When we are faced with unresolved shame and stigma in our lives, what holds it in place is keeping it secret. Within these podcasts, we allow the thoughts, feelings and emotions that are often not discussed to be brought to light, to be shared with the world and to allow those often uncomfortable thoughts and feelings to be released. Within these podcasts, you may hear a…
