Queer Rising

Queer Rising

By Ara Phoenixx

A podcast for queer folks commited to unlearning and releasing ourselves from the rules and expectations that do not serve us. Like the phoenix, we often find ourselves burning down the status quo and our prescribed norms so that we may begin anew, relearning and reconnecting with our most authentic selves. In this podcast, we work to give ourselves permission, and explore the many ways in which we can build profoundly aligned lives that truly serve our most authentic selves and uplift our communities to do the same.

007 - Queer Enough
007 - Queer Enough
In this episode, I explore a worry that I have found is pretty universal in our community and that I think we probably don't talk about enough: the "Am I queer enough?" question. I touch on the many ways I've witnessed myself and others express feelings of not-enoughness in the community and lead with transparency by sharing many of the experiences that I have had with feeling not queer enough. I hope some of these experiences resonate with you and I welcome you to reach out with experiences of your own.

006 - More Than Incidental
006 - More Than Incidental
In this episode, I explore the narrative that our queer identities, and really any marginalized identities we hold, shoule be seen as incidental. Ie., "I'm a regular person that just also happens to be queer." This narrative or expectation feels particularly harmful to me and was something I needed to let go of in order to feel truly seen and authentically me.

002 - June Affirmations (Pride)
002 - June Affirmations (Pride)
In this episode, I explore more deeply the inspiration for this month's affirmation practice arounf the theme of pride and our queer identities. Then we take some time to practice the affirmations together. Forgive the audio on this one. I tried a new recording platform and set-up which did result in a slightly more muffled and glitchy sound than expected. I considered re-recording, but then reminded myself that the message is always to lead with compassion and strive for progress over perfection. You live and you learn, so I made changes for the next episode. Remember if you want a video and PDF copy of next month's affirmation practice, you can sign up for the newsletter below.
