Our discussion

In this special episode, we talk to the founder of LGBTQ SAVES, a support group for LGBTQ+ youth, Sharon Herrera (aka everyone’s FairyGAY Mother). We discuss the challenges and struggles that come with being LGBTQ+, and how this group provides a safe and welcoming space for its members. Tony and Sharon touch on topics ranging from laws endangering trans youth in Texas, to being an Air Force Veteran, and the Wizard of Oz. Sharon didn’t have a “somewhere over the rainbow” where there was safety and comfort to be herself, so she created one for others.
