Avera Maria Santo is a 21-year-old Alabama native and part time college student. When she's not in school, she's working on her blog titled Inside My Holy of Holies, where she writes about her life as a practicing Catholic living a chaste life with same-sex attractions. ​In this conversation, we talk about her struggle of same-sex attraction and its connection to her Catholic faith, along with her blog post (that went viral) addressing Fr. James Martin.

Please know that Leah Darrow and the DSB Podcast in no way are attempting to simplify this topic to one, one hour, convo. That is plain ridiculous. This is just a start, an attempt to talk about topics that are challenging in the face of faith and culture. We welcome your charitable thoughts and comments. ​
