The Wonder Dome

Apr 28 2022 • 1 hr 4 mins

Dominic Longo is the founder of Flourishing Gays, a coaching and consulting firm that works especially with gay, bi, queer, and trans men to support their leadership, personal development, growth, and flourishing. He is a remarkable scholar, teacher, coach, thinker, theologian, bringing together a number of different streams of understanding about how we humans are made, and who we can become if we give ourselves the gift of a life of transformation and growth.

Our conversation explores human development through the lens of what it is to be Queer - in particular a Queer man - in our culture. We land on the beautiful possibility that by creating a world where Queer humans flourish, we are creating a world where every human can flourish. Because, in a sense, “queerness” is a part of all of us.

Regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, all of us have parts of ourselves that are deemed to be too different, strange, threatening, or confusing by our dominant culture. The natural protective response is to hide or repress those parts. But this comes with massive emotional, psychological, and energetic costs. When we find waystoset down our protections and our defenses, we have the opportunity to welcome and amplify the latent gifts and potentials living inside us.
