Hi, I’m Darren Stehle.

I'm the Host of the Living OUT Podcast where Queer Thought Leadership Intersects with Personal Growth, LGBTQ, and Social Justice. 

As an out, gay leadership coach, I help gay men live out their unique role in society: to lead others in creating a more balanced, evolved, and humane world.

On my show, I talk about our unique insights and contribution to culture, art, and humanity. Because we are different, we have a life experience that sets us apart, one that allows us to see the world through a “queer lens” and to question, challenge, and disrupt the status quo.

"Use your difference to make a difference."

When we discover these unique differences for ourselves, we can turn that awareness into self-leadership to make a profound impact and difference in the world. I believe LGBTQ people are essential and vital to creating evolutionary change in the world to help resolve some of the major problems we're seeing – discord, argument, violence, prejudice, and hatred.

It Starts with a Conversation.

Using Patreon allows me to offer "entry-points" for more people to become involved in the conversation. My role as a coach and thought leader is in supporting a healthy, guided dialogue in the group forum – to help my members think critically about the topics presented on the show. The desired outcome is to develop and improve LGBTQ thought leaders who want to create a healthier society.

One of my goals is to produce two or more deep-dive interviews per month with LGBTQ leaders and change-makers, including allies, who are making a difference that impacts and improves the lives of LGBTQ people and humanity.

The interviews will be the kind of conversations you might have over dinner. You’re really getting deep into the discussion, not arguing, but helping each other grow. That’s the sort of intimate interview show I wish to create – an expose into who the guest is at a deeply humane level. I want the interview to have an "educational" impact on my audience; to help you think critically and to gain new strategies for taking action to make a difference.

How Can You Support the Living OUT Show?

At the first tier, your support tells tell me, “I love what you're doing and I want to fund you as a way to say thank you for the work that you do.” For the remaining tiers, the more you are able to support me on a monthly basis as a patron, the more I can give back and offer you.

What Does Your Support Allow Me to Do?

The average duration of a Living OUT episode is 25 minutes, which requires approximately 3-4 hours of total production. An interview lasting 60-90 minutes may take 8-10 hours of total production. That includes research, preparation, guest correspondence, administration, sound editing, writing show notes, post, and so on.

With your financial support, I will be able to hire talented people to help me improve the show and my workflow. You'll hear the difference and I'll be able to spend more time creating and delivering polished content!

So that's why I'm here on Patreon! Not only do I need to upgrade equipment to make a better sounding podcast, but I also need to hire “human” support to complete various tasks that slow me down and limit how much I can create. Thank you for considering supporting me and my work!

When I reach $250 per month I can start investing in equipment upgrades – like a RAID backup drive for the podcast and video media files, an HD webcam for the monthly live calls, and a proper mic boom with shock-mount to increase sound quality.
