Lili Ming and Kenny Jones: Transparency
51 min

Today, I’m in conversation with Lili Ming and Kenny Jones, founders of Transparency, a new video platform centring trans people and their experiences. Drawing from their own transitions, Lili and Kenny have created Transparency to speak to the multiplicities of the trans experience, and as a place where life-saving information and first-person advice is available for those who need it. Our conversation is filled with so much honesty and many hard truths, but it’s also filled so much joy and so much laughter. Among much else, LiLi and Kenny discuss measuring their personal success, defining their lives and their existence outside of societal norms, and how we own our responsibility to live in service of others.

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.
