Topics Include is an unapologetically trans podcast that seeks to create a space for trans people to gather through pro-Black, sex positive, and healing-informed conversations that are educational by accident and liberational by choice. It is hosted by four trans panelists who work at the intersection of art and activism. Episodes cover a broad range of queer topics. Be sure to check them out wherever you download your podcasts, and don’t forget: no matter what they’re talking about the most important topic to include is y-o-u! For more info: topicsincludepod.com

This is a day for us to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe, while dismantling transphobia and cissexism through spreading knowledge and awareness. This year, L Morgan, along with Ianne Fields Stewart, Maybe Burke, and Samy Nour Younes will perform an afternoon of repertoire composed solely by trans and GNC people at Joe’s Pub.
