I hope this interview brings you something good in this time of quarantine. I recorded this episode quite a long time ago so the content is not directly reflective of the time in which we are currently living.  Visit Alynda on instagram @hurrayfortheriffraff to learn more about what she is doing (singing to us! + much more, as always) in this current wild wild time. Alynda was one of my dream guests when I imagined this podcast.  I love the way her music rests in such beauty, the traveling life and all the wisdom it holds, political clarity and much more. Alynda Mariposa Segarra is the Nuyorican songwriter, activist and visionary behind Hurray for the Riff Raff. Alynda was born in the Bronx and has been writing and singing since she was a child. Inspired early on by classic musicals, punk, and beatnik poetry, she was always drawn to the artists and radicals of the world. She explored the underground of New York City and was educated in squatting, train riding, and radical politics at a young age. At age 17 she left home and traveled the U.S. by freight, eventually landing in New Orleans where she helped form a hobo band of 7 called The Dead Man Street Orchestra in which she played washboard and sang. At age 19 she began to record and write her own songs under the moniker Hurray for the Riff Raff, with the intention of using her knowledge of folk music to write songs from her own unique queer latinx feminist perspective. Now at age 32, Alynda has recorded 9 albums and has traveled the world playing her songs. She released the critically acclaimed album "The Navigator" in 2017 which featured her anthemic love letter to the Puerto Rican diaspora: "Pa'lante". Alynda has spent 2019 working on new music, healing and growing. She is inspired by plant life, the ancestors and the global community of protest music. Also this video.  Pa’Lante! Alynda would like to remind everyone to remember those suffering in ICE jails at this moment. We must demand that during a worldwide pandemic ICE stop their raids and release those still in detention.

In this episode we speak about Adrienne’s powerful discovery of pole dancing, the complexity of sobriety and harm reduction, the experience of learning to love her body after struggling with body dysmorphia and disordered eating. Adrienne sees this body nourishment as an expression of connection to the land and a fuck you to colonialism.  We talk about much more and I hope you enjoy our conversation.  Adrienne you are such a warm and open person! Adrienne Huard is a Two-Spirit Anishinaabekwe born and raised in so-called Winnipeg, Manitoba and registered at Couchiching First Nations, Fort Frances, Ontario.  Huard graduated from Concordia University in 2018 and is currently attending OCAD University’s graduate-level Criticism and Curatorial Practice program. She is on the planning committee for the upcoming Two-Spirit Pow Wow happening on May 30th in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It will take place during Canada Pride (a nationwide Pride celebration) and Adrienne is really looking forward to a high attendance this year.

In this episode, we discuss Jewel's love language (words of affirmation), her powerful and important work organizing black/queer/trans party spaces (A Ratchet Realm), the influences that impacted the expression of her sexuality and much more. Jewel was such an open, lovely, fierce guest! Raised by a Haitian single mother in Brooklyn East New York, Jewel Cadet is a vibrant virgo force to be reckoned with. Multi-awarded (Featured in #BETQueerAF: 29 Days of Black Queer Excellence) both locally and nationally for her activism and community organizing, Jewel thrives on supporting the Black Queer, Trans & GNC Community. From curating monthly liberated party spaces called “A Ratchet Realm”, where the Black Queer and Trans Community can get their lives on the dance floor to creating free dance fitness classes full of twerking and whining, she boldly claims her right to take up space in this world. As a speaker and educator she is dynamic and engaging while being vulnerable to her experiences as an Intimate Queer Partner Violence Survivor.

In this episode I talk with the heartfelt and fierce CJ Miller. We speak about her movement towards the dance/movement practice as a Pony Sweat instructor, inhabiting her body as intersex and trans, her relationship to empowered femme-ness and her identification as a Leopard Grrrl, amongst other things. CJ Miller is a dancer, poet, illustrator, and musician. Currently she is the frontwomxn for agitprop Clueless Soundtrack worshipping riot grrl band dimber and plays bass for queer anarcho death rock band Remorseless. She is an instructor for Pony Sweat - fiercely non-competitive, body positive dance aerobics. Her most recent poetry collection LipsTick Vol. 1, a diary and emotional outpouring of intersex, trans femme history and experience, was released via Arts N Crass printing and distro. She has contributed interviews, reviews, and opinion pieces most recently to Razorcake Magazine, Maximum Rocknroll, and New Noise Magazine. CJ is also co-founder and an organizer for Presence, an all ages queer/trans/enby/GNC/intersex community and artist focus event based out of North East Los Angeles. @spookymiller_ CJ has a really powerful self-portrait project that she is offering for print on t-shirts. I will post the image in my newsletter and instagram. The shirts are available to trans ENBY folks for free. CJ’s intention is to encourage acceptance and empower love for tans bodies outside the current model which presses folks towards surgery and alterations our bodies to conform to oppressive binary gender standards. In order to cover the costs of this project CJ is asking cisgender people to donate $20-40 at Venmo: dimber CJ Miller. It is really a beautiful exchange she is setting up so I hope you consider a donation.

In this episode we talk about queerness, body shame, disordered eating, Islamaphobia, pregnancy, questions around activism and self care and so much more. Rage does a million rad things and it was truly an honor to interview them in the midst of their last moments of pregnancy.  I am inspired by them and all they do, truly.  I hope you enjoy this episode.

In this episode we talk about dissociation, choice and consent, gender as "all kinds of ways," life before punk, how adrenaline and traumatized bodies interact and the dull and repetitive conversations that led her to live life as a writer. Cindy Crabb is the author of the long-running feminist autobiographical zine Doris and compilation book Encyclopedia of Doris. She edited the zine and book Learning Good Consent. She is a somatic experiencing trauma therapist living in Pittsburgh. Cindy wrote her zine, DORIS, like she is figuring out the human condition. She makes writing about the simplest and most common things - playing music, childhood, cooking, or sex- resonate with universal understanding. She helps us make sense of more complex things like the satisfaction of doing useful work, natural curiosity, the ability to use logic, gender dynamics, introspection, the need for challenge and change, combating depression, and creating art and literature. She shares and explores the emotions that go along with having an abortion, rape, dealing with the death of family, or sexual harassment in a context that is enlightening and personal, feeling like a close friend opening up to you. What's most impressive though is that she relates these things into every article in her zine seamlessly.

This is the inaugural episode of the WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE: A LITQB reading series. In this excerpt we hear Ellis Martin read several passages from Lou Sullivan's diaries. WE BOTH LAUGHED IN PLEASURE: THE SELECTED DIARIES OF LOU SULLIVAN (edited by Ellis Martin and Zach Ozma) narrates the inner life of a gay man moving through the shifting social, political, and medical mores of the second half of the 20th century. Sullivan kept comprehensive journals from age 11 until his AIDS-related death at 39. Sensual, lascivious, challenging, quotidian and poetic, the diaries complicate and disrupt normative trans narratives. Entries from twenty-four diaries reveal Sullivan’s self-articulation and the complexity of a fascinating and courageous figure.

In this episode we discuss generative somatics as an activist and healing practice, the power of reclaiming our bodies, complicating queer belonging, the spiritual and disruptive possibilities of queerness and Prentis's particular focus on being authentically oneself. Prentis Hemphill is movement facilitator, Somatics teacher and practitioner, and writer living and working at the convergence of healing, individual and collective transformation, and political organizing. Prentis spent many years working with powerful movements and organizations, most recently as the Healing Justice Director at Black Lives Matter Global Network. In 2016, Prentis was awarded the Buddhist Peace Fellowship Soma Award for community work inspired by Buddhist thought. Currently, Prentis is a teacher of Somatics with Generative Somatics, which is focused on bringing a politicized Somatics practice to movement building organizations, and with Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity, a training program for Black organizers throughout the US, and works as a facilitator and consultant for organizations and groups looking to center healing justice and transformative justice into the very core of their work to build more well and self-determined communities. Prentis has served as a board member for National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network (NQTTCN), a network for connecting communities with representative mental health practitioners and an effort at bringing frameworks of healing justice more soundly into current mental health provision models; and on Black Emotional and Mental Health (BEAM), an organization committed to removing the barriers for Black people to receive mental and emotional care. Prentis is also a deeply committed practitioner and healer who utilizes Somatics methodology, intuitive and ancestral practice into their work to heal trauma, and unlock the unique brilliance and contribution of each person, body and being they work with. https://prentishemphill.com/ @prentis.h LITQB Podcast This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves.

Jack and I talk about alienation in the queer community, his refusal of categorical thought, accessing pleasure through humor and navigating life as a trauma survivor with an acuity of mind, with an intention to stay present, embrace his psychic inclinations, meditate and engage in therapy. Jack Ferver is a New York based writer, choreographer, and director. His genre defying performances, which have been called “so extreme that they sometimes look and feel like exorcisms” (The New Yorker), explore the seams between fantasy and reality, character and self, humor and horror. The critically acclaimed artist has been presented throughout New York City, most recently at New York Live Arts, as well as domestically and internationally. Ferver is a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant. He teaches at Bard College. As an actor, he has appeared in numerous films and television series.
