This is a wide-spanning conversation. An integral part of Dan’s story is his experience within church, evangelicalism, and purity culture (I know those are all overlapping things) as a gay man and how damaging it was to his development. That summary doesn’t do it justice, which is why we are all lucky that Dan can say all this in his own words–which he does very well. Profanity warning up top: this show has a bit of it, so, don’t play it around kiddos. Follow Dan on Twitter @sweaterzzz.
