Ep. 42 "Unbonding" from Trauma with Your Favorite Heretic Rachel Myers

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 talks with the inspiring Rachel Myers! Rachel, along with her husband Derek, began a little Instagram page called Your Favorite Heretics -- it was something that began for their family and friends -- a place for them to share their deconstruction journey, but when one post went viral, things shifted a bit! They now have over 40 thousand followers and have cultivated a beautiful, safe community for people deconstructing and recovering from church trauma. They aim to create content that gives language to people's experience and help them along in their healing. An inclusive community for all types of people dealing with the messy undoing of toxic theology, they are welcome to all. Tyler and Rachel discuss trauma bonding, navigating relationships as one deconstructs their faith, her journey toward coming out as a-sexual, evangelicalism, and finding divinity within others!
