Final Curtain

Episode 26 - Sandra Bellamy from Asexualise in the U.K.

Sandra is an Asexual woman and visits us on the SUG Podcast to help us learn all about asexuality and what it is like to be an asexual person. She was a wonderful guest and I learned so much about asexuality from her.

As a side note, this will be the final episode of the SUG Podcast as my life has a lot going on in it.  I have a full time job, military duty, a family with a new baby and I just don't have the spare time to dedicate enough time to a podcast.  I really enjoyed producing this show and I will miss it.  Maybe one day in the future I will be able to find time to dedicate more time to this project and can start it back up again.

Jessica a call back from Ep 12

Jessica a call back from Ep 12

On episode 12 I spoke with reverend Jo in North Carolina. During that show she briefly mentioned a girl with a bad coming out experience with her parents. Well that girl heard the show and contacted me and we did an interview.  We talked about a lot of different things and she is a really upbeat laid back southern gal with a great attitude.  You will definitely love Jessica and hearing all about her story.

Remember to give the show a 5 star rating on iTunes and Google play.  Also give the Facebook page a 5 star rating. Much love to you all. You are a wonderful audience. Thank you for listening.

A.J. from Callen Lorde Community Health Center in NYC 


I had the honor and privilege to speak with A.J. from Callen Lorde. He runs the Health Outreach To Teens program as part of the Mobile Outreach Program. They do amazing work over at Callen Lorde and I couldn't endorse the work that they do more. I was very excited to speak to A.J. and learn all about what they do, who they serve, and the kind of impact they have on their community and the world.

Day One Patch Guest Hosts Thanks to Wade and Jose from the Day One Patch Forum for being guest hosts on the show to talk about gaming and the LGBTQ community and how they intersect. We really tried hard to have LGBT guests on the show as well, the last thing we wanted was to have all straight guys talking about this topic. We invited several LGBTQ gamers to join us and they just were not able to make it. I hope you enjoy the show and that it wasn't in anyway "Straight Splaining" for the LGBTQ community. We really would really like your input and if you are interested in being included in the conversation let me know and I will try to arrange it. Much love to all you listeners out there.

Site upgraded! I updated the site today! After I posted Episode 9, I decided that the blog page needed a new look. In addition to adding some new looks to the page, I fixed some links that were going to the wrong places... silly me put in the wrong links. :P I also added a QR code to the page that when scanned will take you right to the Straight Up Gay Podcast Page on Pinecast.com. Hope everyone likes the new look and let me know what you think.

Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the show!

Technical Updates

Technical Update

When I started the show I was using SoundCloud but I quickly found out that I could only get out 2 or 3 episodes for free.  Looking at their paid plans made me realize, I couldn't afford to use SoundCloud to host the podcast audio.  Thanks to some advice from podcasters on reddit, I found Pinecast. They are much more affordable and offer more space for the price.  So I will no longer be hosting the audio on SoundCloud.com.  All the episodes are available on Pinecast.com now.  You can access them from here (https://pinecast.com/dashboard/podcast/the-straight-up-gay-podcast)

You can also listen to the show on

If you like the show, please give it a 5 star rating on iTunes.  Also please keep in mind that hosting the audio is not free for me. If you would like to support the show, you can use my Pinecast Tip Jar at https://pinecast.com/payments/tips/the-straight-up-gay-podcast

Thank you for listening and remember to share share share with friends, family, and even your enemies... I'm not picky!
