Play • 44 min

Tuck catches up with Diné artist and youth worker LaTisha Rico (they/them). Topics include:

  • Raising a nonbinary Indigenous baby as a nonbinary Indigenous person
  • Thinking about gender as a decolonial act
  • Navigating fatphobia, transphobia, racism, and a pandemic during pregnancy
  • Embodying two-spirit traditions through trans youth advocacy
  • Plus: Gendercide, beading, and fronting an Indigenous hardcore band(!!!)

The article Tish mentions is Deborah A. Miranda’s “Extermination of the Joyas,” which you can read here.

This Week in Gender: The Olympics banned two cisgender Namibian sprinters from the 400m race, citing high testosterone levels. Read Scientific American’s “4 Myths about Testosterone.”
