Living a Sex Positive Life

Listen to “E32 – Understanding the evolution of gender language” on Spreaker.

Vern Phoenix is a person who grew up as a blue-collar conservative Christian in Alaska most of their life, holds no college degree, and still came out this flavor of trans and queer.

He did not have those inherent privileges to be on top of their politics and language that surrounds queer culture.

And then educate them lovingly.
