We started from Ash’s TEDx talks, which cover vulnerability, intimacy, and support. You can listen to our conversation on its own, but it won’t hurt to watch them first.
She could easily say, “As a lesbian, I have it so difficult,” but she speaks more universally. Everyone has something difficult to share, hides parts of their identity, has been made fun of, has felt judged, shamed, or the like. She shares about opening up. She takes no high ground, nor victimhood. She reflects and shares insight mixed with plenty of humor and humility.
I hide my share of things and welcomed her role modeling to open up more. I suspect you’ll want to too.
