I had the pleasure of being interviewed by K, host of ‘Lost Spaces’ - a podcast about lost queer venues and the impact they had on the people who drank, danced and loved within them… In this episode/therapy session, I unpack a lot of memories from my early days in the club scene where my at the time boyfriend would drag me to Diskotekka (my first gay club), and how it shaped me to be the gay I am today. Anyone remember those chaotic, 18+ nights? Looking back at this period in my life, I was terrified of setting foot in a gay club; After years of suppressing and hiding my gayness, it was difficult to shake that fear of openly participating in gay activities (the self-loathing and internalized homophobia were too real). I spilled a lot more than I wanted to in this episode, and I have to say, it’s a masterpiece. Thank you K for having me! And be sure to check out @LostSpaces the podcast!
