In this week’s episode of the Gay City News podcast “Thank You For Coming Out,” creator and host Dubbs Weinblatt (they/ them/ theirs) welcomes Leah Abay (they/ she/ he), who is currently pursuing their Master’s in Social Work at NYU. He hails from Akron, Ohio, where they completed their Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance Performance and then performed professionally for two years. Since relocating to New York in 2016, she has had the pleasure of working with homeless LGBTQ youth as a volunteer and as a part of his graduate degree. They graduate in May of 2020, and their dream job is to become a gender-affirming clinician. She loves oat milk iced lattes and when folks incorporate all of their pronouns into one sentence!
As queer people, we are constantly coming out, and each coming out story is unique in its blend of humor, heartache, worry, and wonder. “Thank You For Coming Out,” inspired by Dubbs’ beloved live comedy show of the same name, pairs them as host with lesbian, gay, trans, bi, non-binary, and more members of the queer community to discuss their coming out stories.
Listen in to our 11th incredible journey into the LGBTQ communities’ vulnerable and often hilarious stories of coming out.
