  • Queer Quarks

    *****Ley is away from May 20 to June 12th

    Replays of old­er QQ shows will run dur­ing this time*****


    A queer talk and music show explor­ing queer media, pop cul­ture and cur­rent events- host­ed by Ley Fras­er, a non-bina­ry queer woman with a Master’s in Gen­der Stud­ies and a life­time of gaiety. 

    About Ley: I’ve pre­vi­ous­ly co-host­ed anoth­er queer talk show called Queer Quarks: Beyond the Bina­ry with Karen McDow­ell at UNBC, and worked as a gen­der advo­cate and edu­ca­tor for Trans­form: Trans and Non Bina­ry Youth and Fam­i­ly Sup­port (out of North­ern BC) and been involved with Pride orga­ni­za­tions for a num­ber of years. I enjoy talk­ing about queer top­ics, and I have a lot of opin­ions; I try to be as bal­anced and cir­cum­spect as pos­si­ble (espe­cial­ly if I am not a mem­ber of the group I am talk­ing about) but I encour­age you to think crit­i­cal­ly about the issues, to check out source mate­ri­als, lis­ten to mar­gin­al­ized groups (espe­cial­ly about their own expe­ri­ences) and respect the iden­ti­ties of every­one around you (because lit­er­al­ly why not, it is free, there is no rea­son not except being a tool). 

    Please email me your ques­tions! I am hap­py to answer, 

    EXCEPT if the ques­tion is abu­sive, inap­pro­pri­ate or inten­tion­al­ly igno­rant (there are two+ gen­ders; this is based on obser­va­tions of man­i­fes­ta­tions of gen­der across the globe, not your opin­ion) I will gonna ignore it/​not talk about it on the air/​or talk about it and crit­i­cize you.
