In this episode, we look at marriage in the LGBTQ community. This is a topic that can be taboo as some people may not want to discuss marriage among those who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender. In this episode, we push back on that notion and talk about who you choose to love and who you choose to marry. We discuss why validation and marriage is important, why marriage rights are different for the LGBTQ community, how same-sex marriages have been viewed over time, logistical hurdles when marrying, marrying for love and more. Our special guest for this episode, who is part of the LGBTQ community, is Cultural Expert, Collincia Rouse.
- How do you feel about marriage?
- Do you feel that marriage is necessary?
- Why should people get married?
- Do you look at marriage from a legal or Christian point of view?
