In this episode, I have a very animated and informative conversation with Susan Roggendorf. We discuss a variety of subjects, including heterosexual norms, LGBTQIA+ community, as well as first responders and her work with this population. We talk about our experiences in the ER, Susan explains how she has decided to challenge all the norms so that she can be herself. We also discuss the current political issues going on currently and how to be more hands on and can make a difference via social justice.
