Episode 57: A Bunch of Queerdos

June 10, 2022

Representation matters. Melissa, Hilary, and Jaymi talk about their queerness and how we can see beyond the gender to get to the core of their energy. Jaymi’s mission is to remove the binary from the cards and give readers and sitters the power to create their own language for gender inside the cards. Hilary wants the bi-erasure to stop and to know that when we share our queerness with others it is with honor and privilege. And Melissa sees you. Really.

Please do not out anyone who is queer, it is not safe to do so everywhere. If you need help, reach out to one of these two hotlines:
