S2E10: Freddie Mercury, HIV/AIDS, and the Straightwashing of Queer Icons
The trailer for the new Freddie Mercury biopic came out and I'm pissed - there's no mention of his HIV/AIDS or his queerness. Let's talk more about Freddie's REAL life and how it weaves into the HIV/AIDS crisis. (TW death, queer erasure, queermisia) https://www.them.us/story/stop-straight-washing-freddie-mercury https://www.amazon.com/Somebody-Love-Legacy-Freddie-Mercury/dp/1681881888 https://surviveaplague.com/...
S2E9: It's Arthritis Awareness Month!
TW: Medications, death, grieving, and I cry for like ten minutes. Yay? I’ve talked a lot about arthritis. For nearly the last decade, it’s the bulk of the work I’ve done. On my other site, notstandingstillsdisease.com, I’ve worked on not only talking about my own health but how we can improve healthcare systems. Today, though, let’s stick to arthritis facts since May is Arthritis Awareness Month. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go listen to Wine & Crime to cheer my sobbing ass up....
S2E8: O.School, SESTA-FOSTA, and So Much More
First, I discuss O.School and why a lot of us are leaving it or were forced out - they don't actually support sex workers. On that same note, some terrible bills have recently been signed or are on their way like SB1204 in California and the combo of SESTA and FOSTA. Bottom line? Sex work is real work, and it needs a goddamn safe space. Unlike some politicians believe, sex work and trafficking are not one and the same. Check out #LUOF...

S2E6: Isabelle and Uterus Owner's Pain
Endometriosis is an incredibly painful condition where the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. It's vastly underdiagnosed, undertreated, and assumed to just be 'bad' period pain. This can cause excessive bleeding, pain with bathrooming, pain with sex, and much, much more. Endo affects approximately 176 million people worldwide. Today I'm talking with Isabelle Lauren - a blogger, writer of erotica and sex toy reviewer. She believes in better sex education for everyone. You can...
