A New Black Trans Civil Rights Agenda

Episode Description

We often use words and phrases like freedom, liberation, and civil rights in the advocacy work that we do. These themes are at the core of almost all the conversations we have on the podcast. This week Imara has illuminating conversations with two Black trans visionaries.

Our first guest, Qween Jean, is the founder of Black Trans Liberation. She’s an activist and artist who’s critical work centers Black trans people in the fight for racial equity.

Then Imara talks to Kayla Gore, the co-founder of My Sistah’s House, a fully fledged aid and advocate organization that started as an emergency shelter with 8 beds.
