In this episode, Eric is joined by ADHD reWired Coaching Group Alumni, Gail Polivy.  She was a coaching group member in spring of 2020 and became a peer mentor for the groups for the 2022 spring season.  Gail self-identifies as an “old-gay-guard” and was thrilled to join Eric on the podcast during Pride month.  

Gail shares her experiences when she came out in 1977, her difficulties in college and learning about lesbianism, and finding a community where she felt at home.  Eric and Gail also discuss how she’s seen the evolution of the LGBTQ+ community throughout the years, how her ADHD affected past relationships, mirroring, and the power of self-acceptance.
