10. Fi-nali-tea: The gays vs queers
What sound does an eagle make? (You'll have to listen to get it). This is the final episode of season 1. Gurl. 🙃 I brought y'all 10 episodes of both intimate and fun "critical kiki’s” wit creative, unapologetic Black/queer gurlz from around Richmond and beyond. It’s been a joy production and it’s growing! 🖤💁🏽♂️
Listen to Muva, madison moore and friend to the show Aaron McIntosh for this light-heated chat about public storytelling, gay vs queer, and figuring how to take up space and be loud wit your dreams. *Quick guest appearances by Amber Esseiva and Wes Taylor. And (!) be sure to listen up to my "words of wisdom" at the intro + check out our RVA MAG ARTICLE (first one! Yaz). Cheers to a full season! We will be back *but with a Patreon account cuz reparations are real...Black Love!

9. Practice Wucha Preach
Join Felix d’Eon, (and the gurlz) for a cute kiki about art, theory, and living how we wanna live through our creative practice.
@FelixDeon's interdisciplinary career as an artist and maker is extraordinary, unapologetically sexy, and remixes "traditional" notions of representation (aka we're here, we're queer). He and his artsy-crew parade the streets of Mexico city and worlds beyond, pushing queer-erotica to the center and cultivating space where we can be, just Be. Felix is down for a Black Matter kiki & given the current moment where just having a kiki around the table wit the gurlz feels far away, wrapping season 1 has been about celebrating memories and love between my friends and myself. Re-listening to this convos from last year Spring break inspires me to keep the joy up and find new ways to stay close wit friends because we give each other live in darkness. Hit PLAY. SUBsCribE. ShaRE. POST a review.
music; (1). Intro/ "Black Matter Main Beat" produced by @Aureliobabbit & @Gersonbonilla, (2). "Realism" By Text Me Records/GrandBankss, (3). closing beat: "Come On In" by Silent Partner.

7. Chile con mango
Owner and chef, Polo Abram of PDX based, Mis Tacones 🌮🌮🌮 https://www.facebook.com/mistaconespdx/ shares tea on things 💋 Queer 💋 POC 💋 Vegan Taqueria 💋. You'll hear what it's like living in the Portland queer POC scene while kiki-ing it up with me in their home country (Mexico!!!) for a well-deserved spring break trip. Polo is an artist, activist, and all around home-maker that believes a real kiki must have food made right from the home, blending together the flavors of being both queer and Mexican.

6. #SchoolGirlHussle wit the Dr. Ki(ara)
From Lizzo to colorism Blackademics, Kiara Lee-Hart and I talk all things that interests us while keeping our loud and everlasting friendship in the mix.
Kiara is a passionate writer, with two children’s books exploring colorism and parental incarceration (Light-Skinned, Dark-Skinned or In-Between? and Be a Man Tyrone: What Happens when Daddy Goes to Prison), a long-running blog (theblackertheberry.org). Kiara owns a t-shirt line called #SCHOOLGIRLHUSTLE. Its mission is to promote girls and women staying in school and proceeds go toward school supplies for local women and girls in need. In 2016, she was selected as one of Style Weekly’s 2016 Top 40 Under 40.
She's a warm friend and represents everything the Black Matter platform well brining LOTS of dimentionalities to the mic.

Honest conversations about gender and race
Just finished #Schoolgirlhustle and loved the conversation moving from learning, to teaching, to cultural criticism. Thanks for letting us into your friendship and honest conversations about how you both interpret and move in the world. Keep it up!
