I met Aubree through another podcast called Nancy. Nancy was a weekly podcast produced by WNYC Studios. It is hosted by Kathy Tu and Tobin Low. The first episode debuted on April 9, 2017. The show's last episode aired on June 29, 2020. The series features a range of topics exploring the LGBTQ experience all of which was super informative and relevant to my life in many ways. One of the podcasts consisted of how hard it is for LGBTQ people finding friends. In some ways LGBTQ people find family since a lot of LGBTQ people are shunned or have non accepting families. For me, I wanted community. I was so excited to hear this episode 'How to Get a Gaggle' with a link to their Facebook Group page. In that group there was 'subgroups' of people looking for their own Gaggle in their city (since not surprising Nancy had listeners from ALL over the world). I was sorely disappointed when I didn't see a subgroup of Gays looking for a gaggle in my area.
One of my mottos is 'If you doesn't exist, make it', so I did. I started a Gaggle of Gays subgroup and got a GRAND total of 3 people. Out of those 3 people one of them branched off and made their own gaggle in a bigger city (about 50 mins from here) and the other two showed up for the ONE time meet up we had. Aubree was one of these people. I kept up with Aubree on Social Media and the next thing I know we are discussing our long lost dreams of doing a podcast and here we are today. In today's episode I interview Aubree and learn about her life, her story, and her vision.
