Range of gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine
We have all heard about decluttering your stuff – keeping what is important and what makes you happy. Well, the same is true with decluttering our beliefs – especially for those of us who are deconstructing from harmful, false religious teaching. When you have a collection of beliefs that don't work for you – that don't focus on loving God, loving others, and loving yourself, it is such a gift to you and those around you to declutter those beliefs. As you discover the truth about how far out of hand those beliefs have gotten, how hurtful they are, you can neutralize them! Lift them off your shoulders. It's time to declutter your beliefs, so your heart can be free to love and be loved.Support the show
We're living in a time of cultural transition. Individuals are openly expressing gender and sexuality with more freedom than before. At the same time, some still believe that expression outside of the traditional cisgender heterosexual frame is a bad thing. Others want to be supportive, but are unsure about the correct pronouns and terminology to use, or how to respectfully acknowledge queer identities.As beauty professionals, we want all guests and staff to feel safe and welcome in the salon. So how do we normalize queer inclusivity in our lives and professional spaces? Emily Holiday is an activist and humanitarian, owner of Emily Holiday Salon, and a stylist at Sola Salons in Charlotte, North Carolina. She's a facilitator for queer inclusivity and identity workshops for salon companies and other organizations. Emily considers herself a “brave space”-- that means she's here to answer questions that might be uncomfortable or inappropriate to bring up in everyday life. Even if you're new to talking about gender and sexuality, this episode is for you. Emily and Blake break down all of the letters in LGBTQIA+, talk about what it means to be non-binary, and get at the differences between gender, sexuality, and romantic attraction. Emily shares some simple yet brilliant practices that you can implement at your salon company. And so much more.

At school, Jake Fedorowski always felt they weren't the sort of person who played sport. Indeed, if you'd have told them they would end up running marathons, they would have laughed. But as a non-binary person, Jake's love of running grew after they discovered the Seattle Frontrunners, a running and walking club for the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies. These days they are both a committed runner and campaigner, championing inclusivity within the running community. One way of doing this was to create the Guide to Non-Binary Inclusion in Running, which they wrote after making the difficult decision to no longer register or participate in events that didn't affirm their gender identity. Jake then began partnering with race organisers, including the team behind the Chicago Marathon, to implement the solutions in the guide. They also founded Run Beyond (RUNN+), a community for non-binary athletes to connect, and are now the vice president of Seattle Frontrunners. Running Tales spoke to Jake about what being non-binary means, their own journey - both in terms of their gender and within the world of running - and how they believe the world of running needs to evolve... --------------------------------- Learn more about the organisations Jake is involved with at the links below: Seattle Frontrunners: https://www.seattlefrontrunners.org/ The Queer Running Society: https://www.queerrunningsociety.com/ Run Beyond: https://nonbinaryrunning.com/runbeyond To learn more about Jake's work and the movement toward non-binary inclusion, visit nonbinaryrunning.com

We step into the world of our next guest, Blaine Bailey, right in the heart of downtown Durango, at a vibrant coworking space known as The Hive.Blaine's story begins in the quiet landscape of small-town Arkansas, where he spent his childhood with his sister and their engineer father. As he grew, his perspectives on spirituality took an agnostic turn. With two years of college under his belt, he set his sights on a ski bum's dream, an aspiration that led him to the mountains until an unfortunate shoulder injury put an end to that chapter.Returning to Arkansas, Blaine found his calling in culinary school, embracing the art of food and flavors. His journey eventually led him to Wisconsin, where he contributed to the management of a small restaurant, honing his skills and exploring his passion.A fateful call from a friend in Durango, Colorado, opened a new door for Blaine. What seemed like a gentle offer of work in a kitchen evolved into a pivotal moment—he was thrust into the bustling heart of the culinary world. As he navigated the pressures of the industry, he was not immune to its vices—late nights, substances, and stress.While the exhilaration of the culinary world was undeniable, Blaine felt a growing desire to step away. The turning point came with a tragedy—an encounter with the impact of addiction firsthand when a fellow chef succumbed to heroin in 2015. This heart-wrenching experience ignited Blaine's determination to channel his energy into something meaningful.Drawing from his own mental health journey, Blaine transformed his pain into purpose. He founded "Therapy for Chefs," a nonprofit dedicated to promoting mental health awareness within the food service industry. Today, Blaine is fully immersed in managing "In the Weeds," working to create a healthier environment for culinary professionals, where their well-being is valued as much as their craft.Blaine's story is a testament to the power of turning adversity into change, of taking one's own struggles and weaving them into a greater purpose. With The Jar as our guide, we embark on a journey alongside Blaine, exploring the highs, lows, and the transformative impact of pursuing one's calling.

Our next guest, Miguel Medina, graciously welcomed us into his home nestled in the Santa Fe hills. As we settled into his garage, a space transformed into his sanctuary, we couldn't help but feel the powerful energy that emanates from this long-distance and obstacle runner. Miguel stands among a select few individuals on this planet who have pushed the limits of human endurance beyond 100 miles, defying the boundaries that most of us perceive as unattainable.Miguel's journey began in Torrance, California, where he was born into a family with diverse backgrounds. His father worked in TV production, and his parents' divorce led to a life marked by relocations between Mexico and California.About a decade ago, Miguel's path led him to Durango, a location that became his training ground and a hub for ultra-running athletes. During this time, he found love and companionship with his fiancée, who shares his home and his life's journey.Our conversation delved into the challenges of maintaining a deep passion for an art or sport while simultaneously nurturing a personal relationship. Miguel candidly shared the sacrifices that often accompany such dedication and the delicate balance required to harmonize these facets of life.One of the intriguing aspects Miguel discussed was how his ADHD, often considered a challenge, becomes an asset during training. The hyper-focus that accompanies his condition allows him to immerse himself completely, achieving a state of meditation that excludes all external distractions, even his own sense of self, during his grueling 24-hour runs.Miguel's journey also encountered a significant hurdle during his time as a student at UCLA, when he temporarily lost feeling in his legs and found himself on crutches and even a wheelchair. This unexpected twist, however, didn't deter him from pursuing his passion and rising to his remarkable accomplishments.Beyond his role as a professional athlete, Miguel also works as a medical interpreter, a career he deeply values. Helping people navigate challenging medical situations resonates with him, and he believes it's his calling to be a compassionate guide for those in need.Join us as we delve into Miguel's life, exploring the dedication, passion, and sacrifices that drive a professional athlete, and yet, at the same time, embrace the beauty and regularity of living a balanced life.

Step into the welcoming atmosphere of Durango, where we meet our next guest, Susanna Dy, at a friend's home. Susanna's roots trace back to a rich tapestry of heritage, as the daughter of two immigrants: her father from China and her mother from the Philippines. Their journey began in Canada, where Susanna was born, and her parents embodied the quintessential immigrant spirit—grit, determination, and an unyielding commitment to better their family's future.Listening to Susanna recount her father's progression through various jobs and the businesses he established, then closed and reopened, is nothing short of inspiring. Her parents' journey from Canada to Michigan and eventually to Virginia Beach unfolded as they followed family ties and pursued opportunities for entrepreneurship.Susanna absorbed the work ethic of her parents from an early age, often finding herself in the kitchen of her father's restaurants before and after school. This experience instilled in her a profound understanding of diligence, perseverance, and the value of hard work.Balancing her innate artistic inclinations and talents with her family's practical work ethic presented a unique challenge for Susanna. While her heart resided in the realm of artistic expression, societal norms often prioritize practical pursuits over creativity.As Susanna's parents transitioned to life in San Francisco, their health struggles with diabetes ignited a spark within her. This inspiration led her to create supplements that catered to their needs, emphasizing sugar-free alternatives.Journey with us through Susanna's recollections of her childhood, her navigation of the delicate balance between creativity and practicality, and her transformation into the remarkable individual she is today. The Jar provides a platform for Susanna to share her story, offering insights into the complexities of heritage, personal aspirations, and the convergence of creativity and practicality.

The LGBTQ+ debate gets crazy out there doesn't it? Raise your hand if you've heard this one: “If two men can get married, why can't I marry my dog?” This is a real thing people throw around. Or, “If two men can have sex, why can't I have sex with a child?” These are real things that are said by people trying to defend homophobic and transphobic views, and distract from the real conversation, from the truth. I don't know if they're just inciting us, or if they really mean it… but in either case, we're going to deconstruct this silliness today, and talk all about CONSENT!Support the show

Step into the serene ambiance of the Grand County Public Library in Moab as we introduce our next guest, Hannah Rita. Originating from the northeastern region of Georgia, Hannah's story unfolds against a backdrop of family bonds interwoven with music. Tragedy struck her young life when her mother passed away when she was a mere six years old, but the strains of music echoed through her family, with her siblings sharing her musical inclination.Hannah's early life was marked by isolation, which led her to find solace in her grandparents' care. At the age of 16, she was sent to live with her grandparents, and by 18, they encouraged her to stand on her own two feet. Armed with determination, she embarked on a journey that saw her earning her GED and pursuing a path in nursing, which later evolved into a passion for teaching.An unexpected twist of fate brought Hannah into the world of photography. A seemingly accidental invitation to assist at a wedding as a photographer's assistant handed her a camera and, at that very moment, transformed her into a wedding photographer. As the years flowed by, she expanded her portfolio, diving into entrepreneurial endeavors here and there, always listening to the guidance of a higher power. It's these subtle nudges that have now led her to venture into coaching, sharing her wealth of knowledge as a photography coach.Join us on this enchanting journey through The Jar as Hannah opens up about her life. Her story showcases the resilience that comes from overcoming adversity, the power of embracing unexpected opportunities, and the role of faith in guiding her towards fulfilling her passions and dreams.

We have the pleasure of meeting our next guest, Christy Williams, in the heart of Moab, Utah, at the KZMU FM studios—a renowned NPR community station known for its unique blend of public radio, broadcasting on frequencies 90.1 and 106.7 FM. Christy's presence is felt not just through the airwaves, but in the hearts of those who have come to know her as a DJ and radio talk show host for many years.Christy's lifelong affinity for music has been a constant thread in her narrative. Even as young as three, she can vividly recall moments spent in Missouri with her parents, where she was captivated by Annie Williams and her musical talents. Singing and performing "Moon River" for her parents remains an early memory etched in her mind.Growing up in Kansas City, her passion for music found an outlet in the high school choir. A pivotal figure emerged during those years—a teacher who believed in her, providing the inspiration and encouragement that can alter the trajectory of one's life. It's a testament to the profound impact a single individual can have, shaping the course of someone's journey.Christy's connection to her community runs deep, and her giving nature reflects this bond. Her roles as a Grand County Hospice Chaplain, counselor, somatic archaeologist, and Moab Art Director exemplify her commitment to enriching the lives of those around her. Furthermore, her partnership with a holistic and spiritual individual mirrors her own growth journey.As she recounts her experiences, Christy imparts a valuable lesson—her path was not immune to poor judgments and challenging choices. Yet, it's these very decisions that have led her to the most extraordinary and fulfilling journeys. It's a reminder to embrace life boldly, make choices that resonate with your true self, and trust that life's journey will catch you when you stumble.Join us and Christy as we delve into The Jar, navigating her unique story, her connection to music, and her unwavering commitment to her community.

The word woke is all over our screens, the campaign trail, the news… but what does it really mean and where did it start? How did it become a bad thing? The earliest usages of woke date back to the early 20th century and the idea of Black people “keeping their eyes open” to the realities of white supremacist violence. “Stay woke!” continued as a warning call until it started to enter the mainstream and lose its original meaning. And the non-affirming, ultra-religious crowd has now succeeded in making “woke” a bad, negative term. But it's not, and it shouldn't be – and we want to help reclaim that. #WokeAFSupport the show
Step into the vibrant world of our next guest, Angie Nicol, as we find ourselves in the enchanting setting of Moab on a tranquil Monday morning. Angie's story unfolds against the backdrop of the '60s, a time of cultural transformation, as she grew up in Moab, where her father toiled as a dedicated uranium miner while her mother fulfilled her role as a homemaker, all within the embrace of the Mormon faith.As life led her down the path of single motherhood, Angie embarked on a journey that took her to Colorado Springs. Amidst the challenges of raising her children as a single mother, Angie faced a heart-wrenching decision that would echo through the years - leaving her daughter behind in the pursuit of a new life for herself and her son.With determination etched into her spirit, Angie pursued her studies with unwavering dedication, eventually emerging from college with honors. Her career trajectory soared to great heights, leading her to a demanding job in Salt Lake City. However, the relentless pressure and demanding schedule took their toll, causing Angie's health to decline drastically. Stranded in a city without the support of friends and family, she found herself returning to her hometown of Moab.Angie's life has been anything but ordinary. Imagine growing up in the shadow of a father who was a rugged uranium miner and an outdoorsman, while her mother fulfilled her nurturing role. Amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Moab, Angie's personality thrived, and at the tender age of 19, she courageously came out as a lesbian, navigating the complexities of small-town life during a time when acceptance was far from common.Join us for an exhilarating and captivating interview as Angie takes us on a journey through The Jar. Through her anecdotes and reflections, we gain insight into her wild and diverse life experiences, from being a single mom to her academic accomplishments and her identity journey. Angie's larger-than-life personality shines through as she invites us to glimpse into her unique world, filled with challenges, triumphs, and a profound spirit of resilience.

"When I told my lesbian love that I was transitioning, she sat with me for four hours, and I said, I don't know what this means for us. Because I didn't know any families who looked like us, any couples who were a trans man with a lesbian. I found out later that there's a lot of us."In today's episode, you'll get to hear the second half of our very special conversation with Peggy Gillespie, author of "Authentic Selves," and with Lana, Ted, Joseph, Tamira, and Christian, who shared their stories in Peggy's book.

Our introduction to Perry occurred at a 1,000,000 Cups networking session in Denver. With his service dog by his side and a positive demeanor, Perry's presence drew our attention.After an initial interaction at the networking event, Perry's unique story intrigued us, and we agreed to sit down for an interview a few days later. Little did we know that the large backpack he carried held all his possessions, as Perry was experiencing homelessness, living in a small gully next to the freeway that he called his camp.Though Perry may be small in stature, his heart, ideas, and life experience fill any room he enters. From the day he was born, Perry faced adversity—his father's violent act in the hospital led to immediate foster care and separation from his birth parents. Over the course of his childhood, he navigated through 21 foster homes by the age of four, until he was eventually adopted.Despite moments of stability, Perry found himself in a boys' camp and was subsequently sent from one foster home to another, all while grappling with bad choices and ill-advised decisions. His life took numerous twists and turns, yet today, he stands as a creative entrepreneur, a business person, and a media mogul in the making, serving a range of clients and businesses through social media and creative endeavors.In a vulnerable and deeply moving part of our conversation, Perry lets down his guard and opens up about the many rejections he has faced in life. He discusses his ongoing dialogue with God, expressing his disagreements with the path that life has taken him on. Perry's relationship with spirituality is complex, marked by honest conversations with a higher power about the challenges he endures.Join us in this touching and poignant interview, as we sit with Perry and his loyal canine companion, allowing The Jar to guide us through his life's journey—an odyssey filled with resilience, creativity, and the continuous pursuit of growth.

We have the privilege of meeting our next guest, Alejandra, in her apartment in Houston, where she resides with Hymie Chapa, our previous guest. It's a unique opportunity to conduct separate interviews with two individuals who share the same living space, allowing them to learn more about each other's experiences.Alejandra, a Colombian by birth, was born in Houston but was taken back to Colombia by her mother at a young age. However, at three years old, she returned to Houston in 1994. Growing up, Alejandra discovered that her father was not her biological father, and her mother had kept this secret from her. This revelation brought about a complex situation, as Alejandra grappled with the truth and began to break free from her mother's control.Discovering such a truth can turn one's world upside down and unravel the fabric of their identity. For Alejandra, learning about her real father, who she is now in contact with, adds another layer of complexity.

This experience ignited her passion for academics, leading her to pursue a psychology degree and subsequently a master's degree. Currently, Alejandra is preparing for her doctoral studies, further deepening her understanding of the human mind.In terms of spirituality, Alejandra's journey took an interesting turn during her college years when a class on the Old Testament led her to become agnostic or even atheist.
