This episode features an interview with Sasha Alexander, Director of Membership for the Sylvia Rivera Law Project.  Sasha is someone I would love to just sit and chat with, for hours as I have met few people with as much life experience, diverse interests, and willingness to put themselves out there and fight for our trans and non-binary siblings as Sasha.

The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence. SRLP is a collective organization founded on the understanding that gender self-determination is inextricably intertwined with racial, social and economic justice. Therefore, we seek to increase the political voice and visibility of low-income people and people of color who are transgender, intersex, or gender non-conforming. SRLP works to improve access to respectful and affirming social, health, and legal services for our communities. We believe that in order to create meaningful political participation and leadership, we must have access to basic means of survival and safety from violence.

As always thank you for listening, thank you for downloading, and thank you for all the kind words you’ve shared with me.  Words truly cannot express how much happiness this podcast, and sharing it with you has brought me.  So in lieu of words I’ll leave you with a couple bad jokes.

  • I think I want a job cleaning mirrors, because it’s something I could really see myself doing!

Voldemort: Knock Knock

Harry Potter:  Who’s there?

Voldemort:  You know!

Harry Potter:  You know who?

Voldemort: Exactly!

  • What does a clock do when it’s hungry?
  • It goes back four seconds!

Oh, and yes, these actually do make me laugh, which probably says something about my terrible sense of humor.
