Our True Colors
Intersecting Communities: BLM and Pride
Show Notes

This week we take a look at how two marginalized communities come together at an intersection. I have this discussion with my guest this week, my son Christian Gann. Together we discuss his experiences being multiracial, what it's like being a member of the black community and the LGBT community, and the challenges that come with it. 

Be sure to listen all the way through to check out new music by Kidd and Queen with the release "Weight on Me".
