06 LGBT Visibility: Being Seen

There's a surprising power embedded in the knowledge that you are seen by others.  It's a feeling of validation, a confidence in the fact that you matter, that you have significance.

This translates to an inner strength.  No wonder it's so powerful to see ourselves reflected on the stage of the larger culture.

And so disempowering not to.

In this episode, we discuss the ways we've experienced the shocking power and influence that "being seen" has had on us, emotionally.

Thank you to listener Amanda "A-lo" Vallo, whose comment on Episode 02 Pivotal Moments, inspired this topic about the power of being seen.  Check out Amanda's blog and her inspiring story.
