This week is Kelsae’s motherducking birthday episode. Kelsae is coming out -officially! - as a lesbian at the age of 31, fresh out of a mixed-orientation relationship. Cari and Kelsae discuss the consequences of being raised as queer Mormon kids and how they are still paying the price. CONTENT WARNING: Mentions and brief discussions of sexual assault, rape, abuse, and suicidal ideation.
