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 experience writing, talking and teaching about gender and sexuality for 10+ years.
Ley has previously co-hosted another queer talk show called Queer Quarks: Beyond the Binary with Karen McDowell at the University of Northern BC. They worked as a gender advocate and educator for Transform: Trans and Non Binary Youth and Family Support (out of Northern BC) and have been involved with Pride organizations for a number of years. Ley enjoys talking about queer topics, and has a lot of opinions. A LOT. They try to be as balanced and circumspect as possible (especially if they are not a member of the group being discussed) but theyencourage 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 to except the desire to be a massive tool.
Please email Ley your questions at [email protected]gmail.com (or message the Facebook page). They are happy to answer any well-intentioned question.
EXCEPTIONS: 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) they will ignore it/not talk about it on the air/or talk about it and criticize you.
