Better than Serial! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ — By Spoppins — Mar 8, 2017

I did not think a podcast could ever top Serial. But Blue Babies Pink did. I binge-listened to all 44 episodes in two days. I laughed out loud and ugly cried. Who would I recommend this to? Everyone. Pastors, parents, people struggling with depression, straight people, gay people... I do not think anyone could listen to this and not be moved. Brett's transparency and gut wrenching honesty draw you and and leaving you wanting more. Hopefully, there will be a second season!

Incredible ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ — By joybell833 — Mar 7, 2017

Regardless of your background or belief system, this is a needed listen. His heart for both the evangelical and LGBTQ communities is unique and refreshing. So incredibly timely.

Powerful story ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ — By krista_kay — Mar 9, 2017

Anyone born in the early 80s in an evangelical Christian family will feel right at home with this podcast and Brett will feel like an old friend. Brett's story kept a smile on my face and tears in my eyes. His story is not just about a Christian dealing with his sexuality, but also about fear and shame. So whether your story mirrors Brett's or if you deal with other sources of shame or fear (from abuse, addiction, family secrets, etc.) you will find a friend in Brett and he will speak truth that will help you break free.

"Yet while I was praying against it, I was simultaneously denying that same-sex attraction was a thing in my life. 

Back then, I denied that same-sex attraction was an intrinsic part of me.

If anything, it was a clinger, a hanger-on, an invader, a tumor, a trespasser, a most unwelcome guest.

It's like the 1986 movie Aliens, where Sigourney Weaver fights off a horde of alien invaders inside her spaceship. Same-sex attraction was like one of those aliens—not part of the ship—just freeloading, wreaking havoc, and ripping people apart. So it was simply a matter of beating it back into outer space.

The problem with fighting same-sex attraction is that, unlike a 12-foot tall alien, it's invisible.

You know it's there. You see its effects. But you can't touch it, can't punch it, can't roast it with your flame-thrower.

You feel like a shirtless old man in whitey-tighties swinging wildly in the night at a ghost he swears he's heard a thousand times. And fighting an invisible enemy is something crazy people do. Being gay can make you feel crazy sometimes."
