50 Years Post-Stonewall - Reclaiming Pride’s Political Roots
We’re 50 years post-Stonewall, and pride looks a lot different than it once did. How we can return to the movement’s political roots? And how do we confront intersex, trans and GNC erasure in the queer community and beyond? We also talk about how the AIDS crisis has had a lasting impact on the community with the lost generation, corporate involvement in pride celebrations and how we make trans rights the central issue of the queer movement moving forward.

Queer Storytelling
It’s time for us to tell our own stories. We bring on friends of MTUG, Joss Barton and Jarek Steele to talk about how they approach storytelling, what shaped their particular styles and why being able to tell our stories is crucial for queer and trans people. Check out this recent piece about Joss here: https://outinstl.com/joss-barton-a-necessary-defiance/ Take a look at Jarek’s work here: https://jareksteele.wordpress.com/?fbclid=IwAR1Ln7qL99KKkS4xCX9iEVXuwVi-cGFS24jVcHx8LZppdBBEl8M2zBKYlto For more on MTUG: https://www.stlmetrotrans.com/

Building Chosen Families for Trans and Queer People
What does family look like when biology isn't the main link between people? Chosen family and intentional family can often help fill the gap for trans and queer people when their biological family can't provide the support they need. Sayer, Willow and Kahle talk about being scooped up by their queer family, what pregnancy can look like for trans-masculine humans and those who don't fit in the binary and how to find your people. • Check out the Feed the People Garden Project here: https://www.facebook.com/FeedthePeopleGardenProject/• If you would like to be involved in Willow's work researching reproductive health for queer and trans folks, reach out here: rosen.w@wustl.edu• Check out https://www.stlmetrotrans.org for more info on the Metro Trans Umbrella Group and the work we do
