You're gonna envy Julia's mother's side of the family, nee Divine. Julia paints a picture of family reunions full of laughter, singing, and cimematic characters. And how they reacted to her "coming out" as lesbian. The patriarchal side is not so funny. Julia's father sexually abused her for most of her childhood. We talk about the notion of God being "father" and how that image obviously doesn't work for some. Listen for how Julia finds her way through the maze of the sacred and the profane into a place of self-acceptance and her own spirituality.
