Many of us in the LGBTQ+ community grow up feeling like we don’t really belong or fit in. Now multiply that time ten and you might get a sense of what it’s like to be a queer kid growing up in a religious household. Filmmaker Chelsea Moore (Sour Peach Films) came by to dyke out about her Southern Baptist upbringing in Tennessee, which included being home schooled. We learn about Chelsea’s early impressions of homosexuality, and how her religion’s teachings conflicted with her own experiences, as well as how it’s shaped the films she makes today. We also get the scoop on what it’s like to work with our one and only #wcw (but maybe we should change it up), Mariska Hargitay, on the set of Law & Order SVU. Finally, we answer a listener’s question about the changing nature of her sexual preferences and her husband’s change of heart on polyamory.

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast and getting to know Chelsea better. We spent some time together in TN in theater productions. One funny thing that came to mind when I was listening. When we first moved to TN and were trying to find a house we might want to buy. The directions were: turn left at the Baptist church. If you haven’t ever been in southeast TN, there’s a Baptist church on every corner!
