Try This On For Size... it's Episode 65 with our newest guest, Conor Smith! In this episode, Conor kicks us off with his first-person story of how he met Jim (1:00) before we all dive into where we’ve been these part three months (7:00)! We then dive into our main topic: what are some of the differences between gay male and heterosexual relationships (15:00). Incidentally, we also discuss the influence of our families on the relationship “script” that society prescribes us (19:00), the impact of coming out and throwing out the script (25:15), Conor’s fish metaphor for queer folks (27:30), what unlearning looks like (33:20), breaking and/or changing our heteronormative society (40:15), better representation and educating ourselves (43:15), and finally, whether it is possible to be friends across the estuary (45:15)? We then close with the Dressing Room like always (53:30), before Philip gives a special shout-out to two former students of his who passed recently, Gunna and Na-Jae (57:30).
