Gender Reveal


Jul 9, 2018

In this week’s episode, Molly speaks with writer and Ph.D. student Al(aina) Monts (they/them), whose research focuses on queer women of color and non-binary people of color. Topics include:

  • Grappling with family trauma by writing a love letter to butch queers.
  • Using federal dollars to study queer SM communities of color.
  • Rethinking “femme” as an identity beyond an aesthetic.
  • Practicing Christianity as a queer and trans person.
  • Exploring nonbinary identity at A-Camp.
