Episode 7: "Over" the Rainbow - Part 2 - Originally Broadcast in 2010

News - History of the Rainbow Flag - Why some gay men might be over the gay scene - Merits of the gay scene - Creating new scenes

It's mainly focused toward gay and bisexual pagan men, but there is some stuff that might be of general interest to GLBT folks and to pagans. There are still a few cosmetic things I need to correct on the new store site, but mainly it's open for business.

Right now I have some of my pagan / mythological photos for sale - both as framed prints and as digital downloads.  Also I'm starting to write some e-booklets on GLBT paganism to supplement topics brought up on the show.  Right now there's a booklet called "GLBTs and Paganism 101" which is an introduction to some of the more common pagan paths and how GLBT folks fit into these.
