    Words from this episode you might not know:
    cis-het people – cis gender and heterosexual people. Cis gender meaning people who identify with the gender they were assigned at birth.
    gatekeeping – Controlling and limiting the general access to something, for example access to the queer community

    Also you maybe don’t know anything about the history of the word “queer” which we mention in this episode. No worries! I’ve got you covered: There is an episode coming up with a queer artist from Washington who did a full series about reclaiming words. We will talk about the term queer at length then!
