34 Hungary - The Hotspot of the EU (New Law on LGBTIQ "Propaganda")
Heartbreaking news is reaching us from the eastern part of Europe.  Though democracy has reached this part of Europe, it seems like change is a difficult process. Human rights are being disregarded and taken.  This time it is about a law in Hungary where all LGBTIQ "propaganda" is forbidden for minors. For the first time, this caused an uproar in the western part of the EU. But what does that mean for LGBTIQ teens? How does it influence LGBTIQ people in Hungary? Is there hope?

33 Gay Pastor - Losing My Religion (A Journey Rarely Talked About)
We heard many journeys of people who were my guests about how they reconciled their sexuality and gender identity with faith. This is a   different journey, one that took my guest from being a pastor to a life where faith doesn't play a big role anymore. Though it is a topic often feard by people of faith, deconstruction of faith, becoming agnostic or even atheist is not uncommon. What better place to tackle it than the Priceless Podcast!

27 Living with HIV - It Doesn’t Make Me a Lesser Human Being (From Acceptance to Fighting Prejudice)
Some excerpts from the interview:  I was diagnosed with HIV 5 years ago, which has been an interesting journey. I teach at the university here in Leeds. I teach issues in relation to gender and sexuality. The part of the Netherlands where I grew up was basically defined by conservative forms of Dutch Protestantism, Calvinism, the Dutch Reformed church. That defined my youth, my upbringing.

I had been working on issues of HIV in my academic work in the past 15 years. While I studied, I was a visiting student in South Africa. I was a visiting student as part of a master program for Theology and HIV/AIDS. At that time the HIV epidemic was in   South Africa at its top level. I did a lot of voluntary work for people with HIV. So that was my first exposure to the realities of the HIV   epidemic. I ended up writing my masters dissertation on theology and  HIV  in South Africa. Somehow it was an irony that 10 years later I was diagnosed with HIV myself. This was the moment of truth for me. If I was really serious about fighting the stigma of HIV then it was now time to do that myself. I had a wonderful social environment with my partner and a few friends with who I shared this news and who were really supportive. That helped me combined with the basic medical knowledge I had that HIV is not a  life-threatening disease. When I started taking my medication, I   realised that I had to take this medication for the rest of my life which was kind of weird to realise. HIV made me much more aware of my body. Of having one and the vulnerability of my body. I realised that I wasn’t going to allow this virus to take over my body and to take over my well-being. The most difficult step was to disclose it to my immediate family, to my parents,   to my siblings. I don’t really care what other people think about me having HIV or if they have issues with it, but I did care how my immediate family would take it.

26 Living with HIV - It Doesn’t Make Me a Lesser Human Being (Short version)
HIV has been around for a while. Though we came a long way in fighting this virus and having it is not a "death sentence" anymore, we still live with the images of suffering and people dying of AIDS. The stigma and judgement of people who are HIV positive remains. My guest dealt with the topic of HIV for 15 years. When he contracted HIV, he knew he wanted to live what he preached.

The most difficult step was to disclose it to my immediate family, to my parents,  to my siblings. I don’t really care what other people think about me having HIV or if they have issues with it, but I did care how my immediate family would take it. I’m proud of deciding to stick to the principles, to the stuff I believe in. I do believe that living with HIV is not a problem medically speaking, but also kind of morally speaking. Living with HIV doesn’t say anything about who I am. But the way I decided how to live with HIV  does say something about who I am. In the end, I would love to see a world where no one is stigmatised for who they are or how they decide to live their lives. I want to see a  world where no one is being judged for the decisions they made.

25 LGBT Activism - I Struggeled With Inequality Not My Faith (A Life Of An Activist)
Though there is still a lot of work to do, there has been progress in a  big part of the world. These changes happened because of the effort of many people in our history and today. My guest is talking about how he became an activist and why he does it. He is talking about the challenges, but also about the progress he can see today.    Quotes from the interview: „I wondered myself why I never struggled to reconcile my sexuality with my faith, but I think it has to do with the position of my parents,  maybe… At that time their own point of view wasn't particularly progressive or liberal, but I saw them evolving pastorally. “   “What I struggled with early on was the inequality of LGBT people within the Salvation Army. That is what I struggled with more than being  accepted or not by God.”   “I always say: “Not every LGBTI person has to be an activist.” We all have our own talents, abilities, and interests. For me, it’s a calling to make sure that all people are welcome.”   “What keeps me going is seeing progress… I have seen LGBTI people of  faith growing in defining and formulating their own voice.”   “We are trying to help churches to become a safe space without entering the difficult debate.”   “If there would be only one thing that I could change right now, I would  change all the religious communities into welcoming and affirming  communities.”   “My message to LGBT people who are part of non-affirming churches is to  find their own path of liberation, even when it’s outside of the  churches or faith.” LINKS: The Priceless Podcast Support the podcast The European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups Support the EU Forum

24 LGBT in Armenia - breaking the taboos on HIV and LGBT topics
The only LGBT organisation is giving its best to not only step up for  LGBT+ rights, but also for other vulnerable groups. Armenia has been and remained a country deeply rooted in religion and influenced by the words of its leaders. In the midst of these challenges, New Generation  is trying to break the taboos, educate the police, and informing the  public about HIV, HIV prevention, and LGBT+ human rights. It seems like a  long journey ahead, but one that some Armenians like Arman are willing to take.

In a second interview with Ade Adeniji, we talk about his personal story. Living in London-Nigeria-London being gay and the challenge of  growing up in a cultural and religious surrounding that says "Being gay  is a white thing."     When this gets to a point where you are even blamed for the death of a  family member, how do you cope? How do you shake off the shame that other people are trying to put on you?    This conversation is an addition to our first interview about shame.  Below you can find the link to the first interview where Ade talks about shame in more details and how to cope with it.

The first Rainbow  Index of Churches is out with a Webpage to further explore and even add information. This is a major step to have a better insight into what is happening in European Churches when it comes to LGBTIQ+ inclusion.  Researches talk about the challenges, about the research as well as their insights and hopes for the future of Churches.

18 Gay Priest - Living Under Persecution (Scapegoating in the 21st Century)
Many of us living in Europe fight for the rights of LGBT+ people and we see the problems and discrimination, but we don't really think about being prosecuted. Poland wasn't a leading country in LGBT+ rights, but it wasn't this bad either. A populist government made it possible to scapegoat a minority that managed to make progress. For many of them, it seems like it was for nothing. What does one do when the church and government turn against them? When they make use of a law that was intended to protect minority religions? How does someone keep their hopes up when they are threatened by being locked up in a prison or mental hospital for doing an LGBT+ mass (Chruch service)?    LINKS: The Priceless Podcast Support the podcast The European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups Support the EU Forum SZYMON'S FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/BiskupSzymonNiemiec

17 Gender Identity - Nonbinary in a Binary World (living in the middle)
Gender is a hot topic in many countries, especially the Eastern European ones. We live in a binary world and many are trying to keep the divide clearly defined. Fear is being spread of what would happen if we lose this "set" distinction. But what about those people who don't fit this binary image? How is it being in the middle, not identifying with the one or the other gender?

Talking about mental health is still a challenge. The 'hush-hush'  strategy is  still prevalent when it comes to this topic. But mental health is not just about getting help when we do not feel well. It is about caring for ourselves. It is about regular check-ups and keeping our minds healthy,  and of course, it is also about healing.

13 Queer Theology: This is how it's done (rediscovering Biblical stories)
Last week we had the opportunity to listen more about the Theory of  Queer Theology. Kerstin Soelderblom told us about her view on what it means and how it can be used to reinterpret some texts as an encouragement for the LGBT+ community. Many of us experienced how the  Bible can be used against us. This has caused a lot of pain and suffering. Not only to the LGBT+ but also other groups of people.  Kerstin has taken the time to show how it can be done. How we can take the story of Joseph, Ruth and Naomi, as well as the story of the Eunuch from Ethiopia, and read them through the "Queer glasses". What might be interesting to some is looking at the texts but also withstanding the widespread urge to read things into the texts that are not there or we cannot know.

11 "Ex-gay" ministry - history, pain, forgiveness, and finding happiness
Ex-gay ministries were the hope for many Christians to change their sexual orientation. Although it never changed anyone's SO, it is still supported by some churches. But what are the consequences of attempting to change one's SO? What happens when LGBTQ+ people realise it doesn't work? How do founders cope with all the pain it caused people?
