106: Greg Thompson on Listening and Understanding
About the Episode
On our Season 1 Finale, Greg Thompson talks with his sister Meg McEllen, about coming out to himself, to his family, and to the Catholic Church. The issue of identity arises, and whether faith or sexuality can fully define us. We also discuss the prospect of talking to people of other faiths, and forging conversation past differences to commonalities.

He studies LGBT issues in the Catholic Church through a lens of storytelling and new media. Greg's gender pronouns are he/him/his, and he identifies as gay and Roman Catholic.
