Whether you came out decades ago or just last week, finding safe spaces as a queer person can be hard. And when it comes to sensitive topics like mental health, gender identity, healthcare, relationship, and family dynamics, religion, and dating, it can be even harder. Each week Marjorie Alexander, out lesbian for over 20 years and self-care newbie, has conversations with people from all identities within the queer experience about their challenges, triumphs, and what they do on a regular basis to build the muscle for self-care, self-acceptance, and self-love. This podcast is for queer folx and allies who are looking to experience more love, develop deeper personal relationships, and live a more authentic and fully-expressed life.

    Izolda Trakhtenberg, The Innovative Mindset Podcast: Featuring Marjorie Alexander, Podcaster, Coach, Social Entrepreneur

    Marjorie Alexander is a podcaster, coach, and budding social entrepreneur. She was first thrust into storytelling during her master’s degree when a lack of high-quality environmental podcasts sparked the launch of A Sustainable Mind, where she interviewed environmental changemakers across the globe as her thesis project.
    Marjorie has recently embarked on her second podcast journey with Queer & Woo, a collection of personal stories and conversations with amazing queer individuals about mental health, self-care and personal development.
    Marjorie has been named a Top 40 LGBT Under 40 by Business Equality Magazine and looks forward to working more one-on-one with people in the queer community.

Birth Ease ,

Valuable Resource

I am so grateful to have this resource for myself and for my child. I do my best to support my child, and yet, I can't provide guidance as she navigates life as a queer young person. Thank you, Marjorie for becoming a trustworthy guide and companion for us both. Thank you.

Helping me to find my way

It can be hard to be queer and not have supportive people around you. This podcast really cuts to the heart of what I have needed to hear.

Thank you Marjorie. Keep up the great work.

IzoldaT ,

Honest, raw, real and full of invaluable information. I’m excited to see how this show grows.
