The five series of #5PrideStories was created with the support of ECOM (The Eurasian Coalition on Health, Rights, Gender and Sexual Diversity), with the financial support of the Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (CSF). It is dedicated to the fight against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia #IDAHOBIT2022.
You are listening to the “The Voice of Diversity” media, releasing the 2nd episode of #5PrideStories podcast chain. It hosts an LGBT person, Sevak Kirakosyan.
Sevak is an independent tutor teaching English, French. He is a person of performing arts and he is carrying the objectivistic ideology.
At the beginning of the conversation, Sevak talks about himself, then explains why and when he decided to join objectivism and act as an objectivist. He talks about his relationships, people and different phenomena.
He states that he wants to enjoy life and experience a lot feeling them deeply. He draws parallels between physical and spiritual feelings and says that teaching is also an experience for him since the relationship with each person is a new experience.
Before becoming an independent teacher, Sevak worked in several organizations, but eventually came to the idea that being an independent teacher appealed to him more, considering the model of equal relations.
He summarizes the lesson with several advices one of which is cited from Osho.
“Life begins where fear ends,” quotes Sevak.
He further explains it, saying that when he first read the idea, he felt a great positive impact on his life.
