Gender Reveal

Feb 26, 2018

In this week’s episode, Molly speaks with Mads Ambrose (they/them), founder of body-positive, all-gender waxing salon Babe Wax. Topics include:

  • Why waxing can be lifesaving for some trans folks.
  • Transphobia at mainstream waxing salons.
  • The struggle of being femme and genderqueer (in Oklahoma circa 2010).
  • Playing with gender as a feminine drag king.
  • What even is a woman?
