    Living in the Gray with J Aprileo

    We talk about how J found community on youtube, their gender feels, the morality discourses we place on fatness, finding accessible forms of movement and more.



    J is a nonbinary fat activist passionate about trans advocacy and making the world a little more accessible for people of size! They believe in self compassion and the power of a good laugh. J writes about their experience as a fat nonbinary person out in the world over on Patreon (patreon.com/comfyfat) and shares resources for the plus size community on social media.”

    LITQB Podcast: This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves. This is a podcast for people who identify as queer or for people who might think of their relationship between their body and confining social narratives as queer. This can feel like an isolating experience.  Our wounded bodies need spaces to talk about struggles with nourishment/disordered eating, body image issues, dysphoria, racism, heterosexism, transphobia, xenophobia, substance use/abuse, chronic pain/disability, body changes in parenthood, intergenerational trauma, the medical/wellness/therapy industrial complex and its lack of inclusion of queer bodies and much more. Hopefully this podcast can illustrate the connections, and resonant pain points, that we have with one another.

    My Whole Body is My Friend: Jewel Cadet

    My Whole Body is My Friend: Jewel Cadet

    In this episode, we discuss Jewel's love language (words of affirmation), her powerful and important work organizing black/queer/trans party spaces (A Ratchet Realm), the influences that impacted the expression of her sexuality and much more.  Jewel was such an open, lovely, fierce guest!



    Raised by a Haitian single mother in Brooklyn East New York, Jewel Cadet is a vibrant virgo force to be reckoned with. Multi-awarded (Featured in #BETQueerAF: 29 Days of Black Queer Excellence) both locally and nationally for her activism and community organizing, Jewel thrives on supporting the Black Queer, Trans & GNC Community. From curating monthly liberated party spaces called “A Ratchet Realm”, where the Black Queer and Trans Community can get their lives on the dance floor to creating free dance fitness classes full of twerking and whining, she boldly claims her right to take up space in this world. As a speaker and educator she is dynamic and engaging while being vulnerable to her experiences as an Intimate Queer Partner Violence Survivor. As a self-proclaimed Ratchet Revolutionary, Jewel is a Black Queer Woman who will tell you like it is, unapologetically.

    Soft Power: CJ Miller

    Soft Power: CJ Miller

    In this episode I talk with the heartfelt and fierce CJ Miller. We speak about her movement towards the dance/movement practice as a Pony Sweat instructor, inhabiting her body as intersex and trans, her relationship to empowered femme-ness and her identification as a Leopard Grrrl, amongst other things.





    CJ Miller is a dancer, poet, illustrator, and musician. Currently she is the frontwomxn for agitprop Clueless Soundtrack worshipping riot grrl band dimber and plays bass for queer anarcho death rock band Remorseless. She is an instructor for Pony Sweat - fiercely non-competitive, body positive dance aerobics. Her most recent poetry collection LipsTick Vol. 1, a diary and emotional outpouring of intersex, trans femme history and experience, was released via Arts N Crass printing and distro. She has contributed interviews, reviews, and opinion pieces most recently to Razorcake Magazine, Maximum Rocknroll, and New Noise Magazine. CJ is also co-founder and an organizer for Presence, an all ages queer/trans/enby/GNC/intersex community and artist focus event based out of North East Los Angeles.

    @spookymiller_



    CJ has a really powerful self-portrait project that she is offering for print on t-shirts. I will post the image in my newsletter and instagram. The shirts are available to trans ENBY folks for free. CJ’s intention is to encourage acceptance and empower love for tans bodies outside the current model which presses folks towards surgery and alterations our bodies to conform to oppressive binary gender standards. In order to cover the costs of this project CJ is asking cisgender people to donate $20-40 at Venmo: dimber CJ Miller. It is really a beautiful exchange she is setting up so I hope you consider a donation.

    Rage Kidvai: You and Your Body are Enough

    Rage Kidvai: You and Your Body are Enough

    In this episode we talk about queerness, body shame, disordered eating, Islamaphobia, pregnancy, questions around activism and self care and so much more. Rage does a million rad things and it was truly an honor to interview them in the midst of their last moments of pregnancy.  I am inspired by them and all they do, truly.  I hope you enjoy this episode. Rage is a queer Muslim migrant from Karachi, Pakistan. They’re a public defender and organizer around the criminal punishment system and prosecutor accountability with Court Watch NYC and 5 Boro Defenders. Since moving to Brooklyn almost a decade ago, Rage's work and activism has focused on queer and trans liberation, immigrant justice, and prison abolition. They are also a visual artist, media maker, hair stylist and co-host/co-producer of the podcast Bad Brown Aunties (@badbrownaunties)

Pure queer magic!

This podcast is a soothing echo that is bound to have at least one episode that resonates with all. Thank you Asher for bringing this project into existence and for sharing it with the world. Everyone I have told about it so far has loved the depth of the dialogue covered by you and your guests. And that Cat Power cover intro is the icing on the cake!

Mind-expanding

I came to this podcast via Lindsay Mack's Monthly Medicine tarot podcasts. I suspected I might not be Asher's target audience but...gotta try new stuff. I was pleasantly surprised how much of what was discussed during this episode resonated with me, so much so that I want to listen to it a second time, and maybe take some notes. Lindsay is as always a font of ideas and statements that invoke (evoke?)OMG YES responses. When she talked about giving up coffee I wailed NOOOOO!! and frightened the cat, but nobody's perfect :) And Asher asks smart and penetrating questions, and I want to dip into more of her episodes.
