Episode Ten - A-sexual society
Can a society so fixated on sex and romantic love accept that identifying as asexual and aromantic does not equate with a life devoid of love or intimacy? In this episode, Bee and Zee chat with Mathilde, who eloquently describes her journey of self discovery as asexual and aromantic. From her initial realisation, to loved ones’ reactions, Mathilde’s story holds a mirror up to society and provides insight into the often overlooked letter A in LGBTQIA+.

Episode Seven - Ahlan wa Sekneh
Ahlan wa Sekneh is a play on words from the Arabic expression ‘Ahlan wa sahlan’ which, when simply translated, means ‘welcome’. This episode features registered psychologist and narrative therapist, Sekneh Hammoud Beckett, who has done groundbreaking work transforming the narrative around ‘coming out’, to one around ‘inviting in’. This concept empowers us to choose who we welcome into our lives, or “treasure chest”, as Sek likes to call it.Trigger warning: A small part of this episode features a discussion around the topic of suicide. Helpful resources and support around anxiety, depression, and suicide are available at beyondblue.org.au

Episode Four - Why not just, like, be 'out'?
As Bee & Zee prepare to share their personal coming out stories, they set the scene by discussing recent events in Morocco where many were forced out of the closet.
