Gender Reveal

Jan 15, 2018

Hey there, gender detectives! In this week's episode, we speak to Carlos the Rollerblader (they/them), a stand-up comic, advice hotline creator, DJ, painter, community organizer, event host, and Portland icon. Topics include:

  • How queerness "softens the blow of being read as a Black man" by white Portlanders
  • Learning about gender roles from a supermodel/professional bowler
  • Using queerness to challenge toxic masculinity
  • Aspiring to be a walking decoupage
