55. Guns, Children, & White Privilege
This week’s episode gets raw and unedited, a departure from the norm.

Eventually we do get around to little Maddie, but this episode is, shall we say, a very passionate one. IG: @QueerMagnoliasPodcast TWITTER: @QueerMagnolias FACEBOOK: QueerMagnoliasPodcast

1. We're. Coming. OUT!
It's our first episode, y'all!!  In this episode, we talk about what it was like to come out as Gay while living in North Carolina.  Since that also meant hooking up for the first time, we talk about that too.  And then, after all that titillating talk, we'll cool off out on The Front Porch with the Cocktail Of The Week:  The Mint Julip.  Check our socials for the Cocktail Of The Week recipes:  IG: @QueerMagnoliasPodcast  TWITTER: @QueerMagnolias FACEBOOK: QueerMagnoliasPodcast
