#32 - Clawing, Biting, Climbing through History with Ainara Luque

Beau my God

28-04-2022 • 1 hr 13 mins

Come celebrate Lesbian Week of Visibility (April 25-May 1, annually), with host Beau Bradley (he/they) and special guest Ainara "Nana" Luque (she/her).

The duo laugh through this too-incredible-to-cut-down episode discussing Lesbian and LGBTQIA+ community visibility, breaking down the U.S. population of Lesbians by generation, and really digging into Ainara's sexuality journey.

Our incredible guest shares what it was like growing up as a Queer youth in Spain, and how it was to move on her own to the United States.  Nana gets extremely vulnerable and shares many nuggets of information that will not only be helpful for anyone to hear, but healing for many queer people listening.

The pair break down lesbian stereotypes, experiences and reasons why it can be scary to be LGBTQIA+ in public, when Nana realized she was a lesbian, and more!

This is an episode you DO NOT want to miss!

Beau my God is a unique space for trans and gender nonconforming individuals and their allies to rumble about the things going on in our community, all things queer, what it's like to exist in a world that generally doesn't understand us
