    how to have hard conversations

    this week is audio from my virtual presentation at the Secular Student Alliance virtual conference. I talked about how to have some of the hard conversations we're having right now about racial justice, gender, sexuality, and other topics where we might be trying to bring someone around to a different point of view

    A full transcript of this episode is available here
    There's been a lot of talk about cancel culture lately. Its the 21st century version of the Satanic Panic. There was an open letter released by Harpers Magazine decrying this new climate of what they called censorship and suppression of views that diverge from the mainstream. They never get too specific. But when you see the names of the people who signed this open letter, their actual meaning becomes pretty clear pretty quick.
    My new friend Dawn has some feelings about that. She came out as trans and *actually* became the target of the sort of thing the signatories of this letter imagine they're experiencing.

    Awhile back I said I was going to make mailbag episodes a regular thing. Then the world kind of erupted. But this week is that mailbag episode! Planning to do these about every 8 weeks or so. Each one will be accompanied by a patrons only version, so if you're interested, check out patreon.com/queersplaining. This week on the patrons only version I'm going to talk about burnout, a bit about my relationship and more! Love you friends 3

    We've heard story after story of the super messed up things the police are doing in response to the protests happening across the country. My new friend Kevin got arrested in the course of a protest in Cincinnati, and what they did to him and some of the other folks who were arrested is pretty terrible. This is their story.

Touching

I’ve listened to this podcast for the past year, and I get something to think about from every episode. I just listened to the episode Trans Immersion Class, and THANK YOU for exactly what you mentioned in the episode, a podcast that goes beyond Trans 101 and shares from the heart to the audience. It’s the perfect way for me to learn without invading and taking up space. I’m going to go subscribe to Gender Reveal right now! Callie, keep up the fantastic work ❤️

Thank you, Callie!

I found this podcast through Gender Reveal and I have no regrets! Callie’s commentary and interviews are thoughtful and a delight to listen to. I also love hearing from a fellow QT Midwesterner! The outro gets me every time.
