Play • 1 hr 36 min
Money and Nikeeta are weekly for Pride month 2020! On this bonus episode, we talk about the largest action Nikeeta has ever helped organize. We also sort through white lesbian foolishness on Twitter and talk queer women and masculinity. Nikeeta is a dainty daddy and Money is a low femme with aggressive tendencies.

Nikeeta and the rest of BLM Syracuse partnered with RAHA and Cuse Youth BLM to organize the largest demonstration against police violence this city has ever seen! Son only that, they educated thousands of people about getting cops out of schools and #DefundPolice 00:49:26 We also talk lesbian gender labels and why white twitter lesbians should consider shutting their twitter fingers up before trying to tell queer women of color what terms they can use to describe their gender presentation. https://www.them.us/story/inqueery-butch This is inspired by a twitter conversation around Roxane Gay referring to herself as a Bisexual Butch, and the white lesbians who were in their feelings about it. You can read the article, but its dated and ashy. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/04/13/t-magazine/butch-stud-lesbian.html Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold https://bookshop.org/books/boots-of-leather-slippers-of-gold-the-history-of-a-lesbian-community-20th-anniversary/9781138785854 Stone Butch Blues [Ase to Leslie Feinberg] https://lesliefeinberg.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Stone-Butch-Blues-by-Leslie-Feinberg.pdf Curved Chronicle: None this episode so be sure to Send us your curved chronicles to QueerWOCpod@gmail.com
