Internalized Homophobia, Othering and Loving Your Enemies - Irenicast Episode #069 - Conversations on Faith and Culture - An Irenicon

In a follow-up episode on the Orlando attack, Mona interviews her friend Rafael who is an LGBTQ Latino. Rafael shares about about the impact of this shooting from a multifaceted cultural perspective, and offers some personal insights on the events and what it means to work across difference. They discuss internalized homophobia, faith, othering, and what brings them hope for overcoming hate in trying and fearful times.
