Gender Reveal

Dec 21, 2020

Tuck speaks with Oklahoma representative Mauree Turner (they/she), the first openly nonbinary state legislator in the United States. 

Topics include:

  • Reimagining the justice system in the incarceration capital of the world.
  • Working in spaces that weren’t built to accommodate your existence. 
  • The pros and cons of representing so many different identities while your white cis coworkers get to just, like, chill. 
  • Dress codes.... they're bad! 
  • Plus: Which Steven Universe character is Mauree?
