So, What Are You???

Storytelling Podcasts >

The title of this podcast is based on the question that so many marginalized folxs are asked, we are supposed to come up with a brief response which must then be acceptable to the person asking the question or we risk being found out, or seen as other. In our society we rarely give people the chance to really tell us who they are without judgment. On this podcast, we do just that. Please listen with an open mind as the guests share their story with you.
