queer and brown the podcast is coming back

Toni Morrison quote

Donald Trump has been sworn in as the president of USA!USA!USA!

It’s time to bring the podcast back. Let’s affirm and resist and support and love and live. The podcast became a pretty significant part of how I practiced all those things so I’m excited to regenerate it after it’s been dormant for so long.

I’ve been terrible about setting a firm date for the return. Today is January 21, 2017. Ima say within one month there will be something I recorded (hopefully talking with someone else) available on this site. A ver si no me pega la flojera.

Hold me to it, yall! I’ve met and reconnected with many inspiring and fabulous queers of color here in Chicago! I want to talk to them all. And not just in Chicago, but all over the place.

In the meantime, check out the archive, tell your homies, your mom and dad, and your neighbors about queerandbrown.com, buy a sticker or patch, and connect with me out here:

Also, read some Toni Morrison. That’s where the quotes in the illustration are from.

This has been a hell of a week. Let’s keep it moving my beautiful qtpoc!
