Is Jesus the Reason for the Season? with Rev. Jarel Robinson-Brown


For this Christmas Eve episode of Black Boy Joy Podcast, Kieran and Ainsley are joined by Rev. Jarel Robinson-Brown, associate chaplain at Kings College London, writer and Trustee of a LGBT faith charity. In these 90 minutes, we cover Christmas traditions, ministering during a pandemic, receiving the call to serve God at a young age, coming out in the church, reconciling faith with sexuality, our traumatic experiences within church, the continuing secularisation of Christmas, the rapper Noname, writing his new book and much much more. It’s a long one, but worth every minute and was recorded before the tier 4 restrictions in London were announced- so don’t come for any of us when we describe our christmas plans!
