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!

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.
⬇️ Remember to scroll down and begin with the Prologue ⬇️
"I sprinted down that path, through the trees, all the way out
to the boat dock—heaving, shaking, and sobbing as I ran. I felt
like I might choke, fighting for breath. My face poured wet salt
onto the summer grass below..."
About the Podcast
(Note: Blue Babies Pink is like an audio book. Start with the Prologue, then Episode 1, Episode 2, etc.)
For nearly a decade, Brett Trapp kept a secret journal of thoughts on being gay and Christian, knowing one day he'd shout the story he feared most.
On a Wednesday morning in late 2016, he logged on to Facebook and began shouting...
He started by publishing a Gossip Guide to his sexuality—a cheeky way to let friends know his secret. He then began sharing the vivid details of his story through a 44-episode memoir, published as one episode per day. He called the story Blue Babies Pink.
Within days, Blue Babies Pink began to spread through social media. Thousands of readers tuned in, eagerly waiting for the daily installment to be released. Readers resonated deeply with Brett's struggle with faith, loneliness, shame, singleness, workaholism, and uncertainty.
Called "the Netflix of blogs," more than 100,000 people have read Blue Babies Pink to date.
