Description

The show all about family; but with gay! Queer mom, Jaimie Kelton, humorously goes in-depth with weekly LGBTQIA+ guests about their families; how they made them, and how they show up in a world that wasn't necessarily designed for them. The mission is to normalize, elevate and celebrate, while confirming that we're just like other parents, trying not to yell at our kids when they still haven't put their shoes on and we're 25 minutes late for school. The end result is a compelling podcast that amusingly explores the age-old question: what's it like to live as an LGBTQ family in a world built for the straights?

l S15 EP3 l Wendy Cole transitioned genders at the age of 67, even though she was convinced from the age of 5 that her “male facsimile” was not her true authentic self. A life of suppression and maintaining a heteronormative identity took a tremendous toll on her well-being, and caused strained relationships within her family, leading to a powerful transformation later in life. Now, finally living her truth, she works as a transition coach for anyone going through a difficult life transition. Wendy's story is a powerful reminder that it's never too late to be your true authentic self. Moreover, it underscores the crucial importance of acceptance and inclusion in our society. “Let my life be an example of what not to do.” Wendy Subscribe to The Queer Family Podcast for more episodes that celebrate and normalize the diverse spectrum of family experiences within the LGBTQiA+ community. 🏳️‍🌈Thanks to  ⁠⁠Our Shelves⁠⁠ (code QUEERFAM) and our ⁠⁠Patreon⁠⁠ supporters. 🏳️‍🌈Interested in advertising?

Wendy *” Gender is between your ears, not between your legs." Wendy *” It's less about transitioning and more about correcting a condition you're born with so you can be who you've always been." Wendy *” I’m just being for the first time after 67 years." Wendy *” All life changes begin and are between your ears. 80% between your ears." Wendy 🏳️‍🌈About The Guest(s)🏳️‍🌈 Wendy Cole is a transition coach, a role she embodies to assist others in navigating complex life challenges, drawing from her own profound personal journey.

l S15 EP2 l Jaimie sits down with Roberto Concepción to chat about his journey to solo parenthood as a gay dad through surrogacy. After his daughter’s birth, he noticed a severe gap in representation for families like his, and so, in true badass style, he decided to change that. He wrote and self-published a children's book called "More Than a Crown" to show his daughter a family like hers in the pages. It's all about embracing different family setups and encouraging kids to shake up old-school expectations.

A Mic for the LGBTQIA+ Community: The Queer Family Podcast. Join Jaimie in this Bonus Episode as she guests on ‘This ‘Is Infertility” with Dan Bulger.  Almost three years ago, we published a list of our Top 17 Favorite Fertility Podcasts. Topping that list was a podcast called “If These Ovaries Could Talk,” a show centered around the lesbian experience of fertility and family building. Today’s guest, Jaimie Kelton, created this podcast after going through the journey to build her family and struggling to find relatable content and education for queer identities. As her following has grown, so has her podcast. Jaimie explains how her show has now evolved into “The Queer Family Podcast,” a podcast for diverse identities, and all LGBTQIA+ stories alike. She dives deep into her story, the evolution of the podcast, and the reality of family-building in the LGBTQIA+ community.  🏳️‍🌈Thanks to California Cryobank (code QUEERFAM),  Our Shelves (code QUEERFAM) and our Patreon supporters. 🏳️‍🌈Interested in advertising?

Progyny is mentioned as an insurance provider addressing inclusive coverage for the community. 🏳️‍🌈Quotes:🏳️‍🌈 *“For the most part, the LGBTQIA+ community is an afterthought when it comes to fertility care, which is funny, because we are the main supporter of fertility care, because most of us need help to make our families.” - Jaimie Kelton *"I didn't hear any queer stories at all.

S14 EP15 BONUS | Join Jaimie in this Holiday Bonus Episode as she guests on 'Lost Spaces' with K Anderson! Jaimie shares her experience growing up in San Francisco surrounded by queer culture but struggling to recognize her own queerness. She discusses the male-dominated gay world she witnessed in the 80s and 90s and the lack of representation of gay women. Jaimie reflects on her journey of self-discovery, including experimenting with women and eventually embracing her identity as a lesbian. She also discusses the challenges of coming out to her parents and the stereotypes surrounding "U-Haul lesbians." Throughout her story, Jaimie emphasizes the importance of embracing one's differences and shedding the need for perfectionism. Dive into this special episode with a personal touch from Jaimie. 🏳️‍🌈Thanks to California Cryobank (code QUEERFAM),  Our Shelves (code QUEERFAM) and our Patreon supporters. 🏳️‍🌈Interested in advertising? Check out our packages here. 🏳️‍🌈Key Takeaways:🏳️‍🌈 Growing up in a queer-friendly environment does not guarantee immediate self-recognition of one's own queerness. Representation and exposure to diverse queer experiences are crucial in understanding and accepting one's own sexuality. Coming out can be a complex and ongoing process, with individuals gradually embracing and fully owning their identities. The queer community can provide support and a sense of belonging during the process of self-discovery. Losing perfection means letting go of the need to control others' perception of you. 🏳️‍🌈Quotes:🏳️‍🌈 "I think everybody has a little bit of gay in them and they just haven't found it yet." - Jaimie Kelton "I knew there was community. I knew I would not be alone if I decided to come out.” - Jaimie Kelton “I feel like I touched my toe real slowly into this gay water." - Jaimie Kelton 🏳️‍🌈Resources mentioned in the episode: Listen to Lost Spaces 🏳️‍🌈If you like the episode, make sure to leave us a review and support The Queer Family Podcast on Patreon for as low as $2/month! 🏳️‍🌈We want to hear from you!

We had to go back to the drawing board and adjust our plans accordingly." Jaimie  "I always felt slightly off about our fertility doctor. I never felt like he was right for me. Finally, after all of that, I said, 'You know what? Switch the formula. I'm getting a new doctor.'" Jaimie "We took out another loan against my wife's retirement. Thank God we were privileged enough for my wife to have a retirement to even take out of. We went for the IVF, and it didn't work." Jaimie 🏳️‍🌈Key Takeaways:🏳️‍🌈 Trust your gut and find a doctor who is the right fit for your fertility journey. Taking supplements and making lifestyle changes can improve egg health and increase the chances of pregnancy. The financial cost of fertility treatments can be significant, and it's important to plan and budget accordingly. Open and honest communication with children about their donor origins is crucial, but it's important to consider age-appropriate explanations and potential confusion. 🏳️‍🌈Resources mentioned in the episode: Listen to Who’s Your Daddy Follow Michael and Matt Email them at whosyourdaddypod@gmail.com 🏳️‍🌈If you like the episode, make sure to leave us a review and support The Queer Family Podcast on Patreon for as low as $2/month! 🏳️‍🌈We want to hear from you!

But you we as people are not smart enough in our own strength to know how to act. To know what the order for our steps should be. We often say to the potter, "you don't know what you are doing". Yet the Potter guides the clay. When we allow God, Jesus Christ, the beginning and the last, the word that created the earth, to be at the head of the Home, and parents are on board with his Word, his doctrine, his guidance. I will tell you now, it is much smoother sailing. This message is not to condemn its to guide. I love you, God loves you, but he did not design you to operate on your own capacity. you are trying to make your own way straight and prosperous, and it isn't working. Somewhere along t

Thank you for talking about HELLP Syndrome. My daughter had to be delivered at 24 weeks because I almost died from it. There isn't enough awareness about this.

Imagine a show titled "If These Testicles Could Talk", then imagine what the show would talk about. Now ask yourself, "Am I sexist?"
