A “Gays On” episode featuring Burak Yilmaz on healing and self-discovery
In this episode, I talk with Burak Yilmaz about his remarkable path to freedom as a gay man which he chronicles in his upcoming book, If My Mother Never Left.
Join me as I talk with Burak about:
Being tortured for speaking out as a gay man in Islam
Learning to survive alone on the streets of Turkey and New York City
Overcoming shame and recovering from depression
How writing has helped him heal and live as his true self
His work to support and guide younger generations

The “Gays On’ Series presents the voices of men who are on their journey of living openly and authentically. Not necessarily the perspective of therapists or coaches, these are the lived experiences and wisdom of gay, bi and queer man on what it’s like to heal through love.
