Liz Tracy joins Mal to discuss internalized homophobia and how it creeps up, even once you are out and proud.

**Content Warning: This episode contains content that may be challenging to some listeners. Please check the show notes below for a detailed description. This week, Mal is joined by her friend Sierra to discuss toxic relationships: the signs, the patterns, and what to do if you think you might be in one. It was Sierra's first relationship with a woman that forced her to examine her past, and which brought up repressed memories of Childhood Sexual Assault (CSA).

Sierra shares what she learnt during that time and reminds us that we all deserve a happy ending, no matter the circumstances we came from.

This week's episode dives into the topic of sexuality and the spectrum, how accurate those online "Am I Gay" quizzes are, and the nuances of appreciation versus attraction.
