Episode 127: It’s Pride Season!

Andi and Lise talk about Pride: its origins, media representation, commercialization, and the anti-LGBTQIA stuff we are all still facing. Celebrate, commemorate, but stay safe and take care of yourselves and each other. 

Some reading! 

Pride and the history of police violence against LGBTQ communities 

The History of Pride: How Activists Fought to Create LGBTQ+ Pride 

What is Pride Month and the History of Pride? 

Shout-outs: Lise has been watching season 4 of Stranger Things on Netflix, but has mixed feelings about Netflix because the service has been stepping in it by platforming anti-trans voices and other problematic things. Andi has been watching British procedurals on Acorn and BritBox and is continually reminded how screwed up the US is because gun violence just isn’t an issue in almost all of them. 

Solidarity, love, and light to those affected by gun violence.
