Anthology/Appendix: On Not Dying In Germany
17 min

As part of this special series funded by the European Cultural Foundation, I’m delighted to be working with artist and activist Isaiah Lopaz to share exclusive first-listens to his new project, Anthology/Appendix. Anthology/Appendix is a multimedia project centred around queer Black fiction and includes readings, rituals, discussions and performances.



 Today’s story is “On Not Dying in Germany”. While waiting for her sons to visit, an old woman speaks to her long-gone husband about the secrets shrouded in their union, her desire to die at home and her fear that she will be buried not once, but twice. “On Not Dying in Germany” explores secrets, assimilation, colorism, and loss and is voiced by Isaiah Lopaz.

Community w/ Kristen Kaza - Ep. 159
We all want it, we all need it, but sometimes, we're not quite sure how to find it. That's why people like Kristen Kaza dedicate their lives to building community through events and creating "brave spaces" for LGBTQIA folks. Kristen is the party guru, event planner, and activist behind Reunion Chicago, Chicago’s beloved queer dance party Slo 'Mo, and more. She has worked on holding space and building events and gatherings where the LGBTQIA community can connect with, enjoy, and sometimes, challenge each other. We talk about how our communities are changing, and how COVID has shifted the way we connect. Plus, Melody implores our listeners to shed light on the Beaver festival, while Carolyn attempts to save her queer cred by binging gay movies. Finally, we answer a question from a baby gay with an adorable crush. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.
