To close Pride Month out with a bang, I asked my good friend, Alex Armijo, to come back on the pod and discuss a topic that puts me a little out of my comfort zone…. sexuality. Dun dun DUN! One might blame Chappel Roan, but this episode was inspired by the question, what does queer even mean?

Alex is an artist, DEI thought leader, a disability, LGBTQIA+, and human rights advocate. Basically, one of my favorite people to discuss these types of topics with. We also dive into Inside Out 2 (hehe). 

Here’s a look at what we discuss:

  • Sexuality is a spectrum
  • Chapell Roan and her ownership of her queer identity and how that inspires others
  • What does queer even mean?
  • Alex and I share our first experiences with “sexuality” 
  • Labels and how they can help or hurt…. 
  • What “coming out” represents
  • Finding your communities – they’re out there! 
  • No matter what, who you love and what you enjoy are perfect and no one should ever take that away <3

This episode was scary for me to do, but sexuality isn’t something to be ashamed of. This is for anyone who may be scared, confused, or needing a reminder that they are perfect just the way they are. 

Let your freak flag fly, baby!
