We’re Gonna talk about it Podcast
Episode 9: In the Name of Pride

Gender pronouns and LGBTQIA+, what does it all mean and how can allies do better? There is emotional labor that LGBTQIA+ go through every day to make others feel better or to mask their own emotional needs in order to not upset others. That emotional labor within LGBTQIA+ and persons of color as well as people with disabilities expend to be “acceptable” is exhausting and frustrating. We’re Gonna Talk About It Podcast Episode 9: In the Name of Pride, delivers a 2 part episode that discusses “Allyship 101”. Guest Emma VanVactor Lee, Educator, answers some of the basic questions and terminology on the journey to be better friends and allies to the LGBTQAI+ community (including what some of those letters stand for!)
