Do you ever find yourself mulling over the longterm impacts of living through COVID-19 (and the downfall of late-stage capitalism) as a young and ‘openly’ queer/trans person?
If it sounds like a lot to unpack, it’s because it is… So let’s unpack it together. Introducing our new upcoming podcast series, 3 Chaotic Queers! 🌈
Join Rabia (she/them), Nicole (she/them), & Sydney (they/her) as they discuss what it means to be queer in today’s society and why they’re ready to burn this capitalistic sh*tshow to the ground…
Listen to the trailer here, and catch the first episode of this 4-part series on Friday, March 4th, wherever you listen to your podcasts. Until then, make sure to give our quirky co-hosts a quick follow to find extra episode teasers and some super special bonus clips!! 🙀
Please note this content is intended for audiences 16+ and may contain mature discussions that are not suitable for younger individuals. Mentions of suicidality, drug use, acts of intolerance/violence targeted at 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, and more will occur throughout.
What does it mean to have a wellness practice? How do you know what is the right practice that connects with your inner self? And how do these efforts connect to decolonization and affirmation for the 2SLGBTQ+ community? These questions represent only a few that Nourishing Our Roots sets out to answer. Nourishing Our Roots is a podcast that explores wellness practices in an effort to promote healing for racialized and Indigenous 2SLGBTQ+ folks. With a holistic approach, hosts Grace and Ashiana speak with guests about four pillars of wellness through a decolonial lens. This season features discussion and activities around themes of spirituality, art, embodied practices, and sexual health.
This podcast is a response to YouthLine’s Do Better report, featuring 7 recommendations by 2SLGBTQ+ youth in Ontario for more inclusive and effective ways to service their community. Nourishing Our Roots is grounded by the belief that 2SQTBIPOC deserve wellness services and tools that are anchored in decolonization, cultural relevance and gender and sexual affirmation.
