On the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Pete and Patti discuss the importance of celebrating diversity, inclusion and pride in this special episode of Pete and Patti’s Powerful Particulars podcast!
In this candid episode, the pair discuss what it is like to be marginalised in society and the historical (and not so historical) stigmas of being different. Using ‘being in the closet’ as a metaphor, Pete explores the importance of acknowledging who we really are (independent of sexual orientation) and true to ourselves.
Patti shares her experiences of growing up gay – from being a child in Idaho through to ‘coming out’ in her teenage years and the impact that it had on her family. Fast-forward 20 years and it’s a very different story, with Patti describing the very tangible benefits of encouraging diversity – including understanding your audience / customers better.
As people become more accepting, it is important that we continue to support others to be their authentic selves; celebrating the differences between us. The pair wrap up this emotion-packed episode by asking where does prejudice and insecurity stem from and reminding us that on an energetic level, we are all very much the same!
