In this episode we explore the many ways that gay men learn to feel a specific type of shame through their experiences as both boys and adults. Our interview with Dan Lacovara introduces us to his Gay Shame Paradigm which teaches us: 1) The 4 pillars of the paradigm in which gay men learn to feel ashamed of being gay, 2) How it feels to go through life as a gay man, and 3) Ways that gay men can support themselves in healing from this learned shame.
