Special Feature: Full Interview with Dolores

Jac sits down with Dolores to discuss what it's been like for them to settle into queerness and blossom into their trans identity. The conversation was so good, we want to share the whole thing with you. Topics include Spice Girl crushes, NC's HB2, bodily changes that come along with taking testosterone, family ups and downs, and pronouns. 

A huge thank you to Dolores for sharing their story so openly. You are an inspiration.

 

Episode 3: Bathroom Business

Six. This is the average number of times a person goes to the bathroom in a 24 hour period. It’s one of the most intrinsic of human behaviors, and yet the good people of North Carolina recently found a way to make it complicated and controversial. In this episode of Sitting in the Intersection, we explore the intersection of gender identity and bathrooms.  


The music in this episode is from the amazingly talented Durham based band, Laila Nur & The Love Riot. Find their song, “BOY” and more at lailanur.com and on Facebook and YouTube.
