Dandy | Founder & Podcast Host
Dandy, a 25 year old cis queer woman from the Inland Empire in Southern California, is the founder and host of #DoTell podcast. #DoTell originated from a place of pain but was birthed from a process of healing. Dandy grew up in the Southern Baptist church where she was active in numerous ministries, but as she came of age she began to question her sexuality, along with her relationship to this community and its philosophy.
She understood the risks of living openly as a queer person – conditional and revocable love from family and friends, and powerful stigma attached to her romantic attractions. She was desperate to carve out a liberating space of healing, love, and acceptance, and hence #DoTell was created. Dandy has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology, and is currently working towards a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology, where she hopes to serve the LGBT community in the mental health field. Dandy aspires to expand her podcast through live shows and speaking engagements at higher learning institutions.
