Is falling in love inherently a political act? In this special Mother's Day episode of the podcast, I interview my mom about entering an interracial marriage shortly after it became legal, we trade tales of being in non-traditional couples (then vs. now), and she recalls lots of embarrassing stories about me I have completely forgotten. My mom, not unlike myself, is still learning how to be a trans ally. Please don't judge her too harshly. Highlights include:
- Why my mom says she will never disown me,
- What she noticed first about my boyfriend, and
- How both of us have been impacted by housing discrimination.
