Episode Description

Dr. Loren Olson is an author and distinguished life fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. A physician for over 50 years, he served as a flight surgeon in the US Navy and continues to practice psychiatry. He embraced being gay at the age of 43, after 18 years of marriage to his wife, Lynn, and raising their two daughters. A well-regarded essayist and popular speaker on mental health and LGBTQ issues, Loren has been interviewed on regional and national television, national and international radio, and in multiple print and online publications. In his book, No More Neckties: A Memoir in Essays, he will discuss the hard stuff—sex, infidelity, guilt, shame, forgiveness, suicide, and aging—in his candid and inspiring new memoir. Now in his 70s, Dr. Olson believes that only when we have the courage to show up as our true self can we find a sense of belonging and acceptance.
