Welcome to Have a Blessed Gay, your weekly spiritual-comedy podcast! Join holy host, Tyler Martin, as he critically discusses social norms, current events, mental health, religion, and spirituality from an outcast's perspective. In this episode, Tyler chats with Brandan Robertson! Brandan is an author, activist, theologian, and serves as the Lead Pastor of Missiongathering Christian Church in San Diego, California. Named by the Human Rights Campaign as one of the top faith-leaders leading the fight for human rights, Brandan has worked with political and social leaders around the world to end conversion therapy and promote LGBTQ+ rights. Other than his own books he’s written, he has also written for publications like TIME Magazine, NBC, and The Washington Post. He has also been an honored speaker at renowned institutions like The White House, Oxford University, and The Parliament of the World’s Religions. His newest book, Nomad: A Spirituality For Traveling Light, was just released in the US on August 11th. We chat about his new book, his evolution from being a very conservative to a very progressive theologian, what role a church has in our modern world, and how each and every person has holiness within them. Enjoy this awesome conversation!
