Life and Love In the Q Podcast Do We Need to Label Ourselves: Part 4 of 4

Labels were a big part of Jillian Abby’s memoir, Perfectly Queer. In this episode, she and Treisha Peterson, P.h.D. discuss labels from all angles– the good, the confusing, and why gatekeeping should not even be a part of the labeling equation. Jill discusses why “Queer” was intentionally included in her book title and how she hopes to take the charge out of the word. Treisha discussed a Starbucks interaction that taught her more about labeling others and how to have a productive conversation to help others.
