Episode 15 - Use Gender Pronouns
Xorr Xiong reached out to me regarding how I was using gender pronouns that weren't inclusive in the early days of this podcast. I truly appreciated being held accountable because I owe it to my listeners to uplift folks of all identities. Take a listen as we dive into Xorr's work at the Asian American Organizing Project, queer identity, amplifying trans voices and why gender pronouns matter. I close out with insight on things that don't define us, things that do and how to differentiate between the two. Follow You Had Me At YLW on IG and Twitter: @YouHadMeAtYLW
