SA “Baz” Collins:
SA Collins hails from the San Francisco Bay Area where he lives with his (legal) husband, their daughter and, wonder of all wonders because he only just broke 50, a whirlwind of a granddaughter (pictured ). Along with two exotic looking cats, they happily live out the Republican Neo-Con nightmare. Their home is filled with laughter and love whilst shouting at the top of their lungs (or very near to) – something that causes great aggravation to the hubby who prefers solemn quietude (he’s seldom rewarded for his wishes – though he tries). Science and knowledge reign supreme in their home and no topic is too sacred to discuss. In their near 20 years together they’ve (truly) not had a single argument – so they must be doing something right.

Vance Bastian:
Vance Bastian loves being a professional storyteller. He writes urban fantasy about sandmen and reapers. He has grown his acting and voice background into to a career performing voice-over work and narration for both radio and audiobooks.

He is also a founding host of the WROTE podcast – bringing you interviews and news of authors who write, perform, and tell LGBTQ stories.

When nobody’s looking, Vance is a complete sci-fi and fantasy geek.

Brian Peyton Joyner

October 21, 2017


It gives us great pleasure to welcome Brian Peyton Joyner as the guest on Episode 134: Bridge the Divide!

This week Brian Peyton Joyner joins the show to discuss his novel, The Wisdom of Stones, the struggle Brian went through coming out as a senior at a Baptist College, his podcast, and his Agreeable Disagreement movement!

Follow Brian and support his work:

Bio:

Brian Peyton Joyner was born and reared in a small town in South Carolina. He spent the first years of his life living in a trailer in Iva, South Carolina, a town of about a thousand people. HIs Grandpa used to brag that at least it had a red light, whereas its rival city did not. When he was young, he moved to Anderson where he attended public school, including T.L. Hanna High. In 1988, he graduated top of his class. His valedictory speech contained so many quotes (many in Latin) that he’s grateful VCRs no longer exist.

He next attended Furman University, a liberal arts college that was affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention when he enrolled. His senior year, he came out of the closet and broke off his engagement to his high school sweetheart. That same year, Furman decided to break its ties with the SC Baptists and became an independent university. Coincidence? Albert Einstein said, “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” Brian tends to agree with him.

During his first year of law school, he worked retail across Michigan Avenue from the man that would later become his husband. Even though they spent almost a year no more than a hundred yards apart, they didn’t meet until 13 years later.

In 1996, he took a job at one of the largest law firms in the world and moved to San Diego, California. Ten years later, he met his husband. They married on Halloween in 2008, and four days later Prop 8 passed.

For twenty years, he made his parents proud when he worked as a corporate attorney. But on August 1, 2016, he quit his job (and disappointed his parents). He’s now a full-time writer, speaker, and advocate for “agreeable disagreement.”

His debut novel, The Wisdom of Stones, was published in May 2017.

This week Hans M. Hirschi joins the show to discuss his latest release, Disease, writing about the tough topics that face families of every type, and the upcoming GayRomLit Retreat!

Follow Hans and support his work:

Bio:

Hans likes to read books that deal with issues he can relate to, tackling the big as well as the mundane questions facing humanity and particularly the LGBT community today, from parenting, family relationships, love, loss, but also difficult subjects like our environment, trafficking, child abuse, racism, global warming, aging etc.

He’s a fifty-year-old father who clings to the illusion of still being his pen-age of twenty-seven, despite his body’s daily wake-up reminders to the contrary. He’s married to the most amazing man, Alex, and together they have a beautiful four-year-old son, Sascha. He considers himself a citizen of the world, having lived on two continents and traveled extensively (a hobby) through another three. He has friends all over the world. When he’s not writing, he likes to do public speaking or training (where he has his professional background).
