In this episode, Eva and I talk about our shared hometown of Saint Louis, MO.  We address the ways that Eva has`worked to undo her internalized homophobia, transphobia and anti-blackness.  Eva also gives us her take on the current "trendiness" of transness and BLM. Eva Reign is an actor, writer and artist originally from St. Louis, Missouri. She is a columnist at the Condé Nast publication Them. where writes on Black trans life and profiles people across the country.

LITQB Podcast: This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves. This is a podcast for people who identify as queer or for people who might think of their relationship between their body and confining social narratives as queer. This can feel like an isolating experience.  Our wounded bodies need spaces to talk about struggles with nourishment/disordered eating, body image issues, dysphoria, racism, heterosexism, transphobia, xenophobia, substance use/abuse, chronic pain/disability, body changes in parenthood, intergenerational trauma, the medical/wellness/therapy industrial complex and its lack of inclusion of queer bodies and much more. Hopefully this podcast can illustrate the connections, and resonant pain points, that we have with one another.  Livinginthisqueerbody.com  @livinginthisqueerbody
