In this all new episode of BMG, host Beau Bradley (they/he) jumps back into The Queer Alphabet discussing the Q in LGBTQIA+, and how it stands for both Queer and Questioning. In today's episode, Beau focuses on Q is for Queer walking through the history of the term, the turmoil over it within the queer community, and more starting in the 16th century.  To expand upon the feelings behind the term, Beau reads excerpts from a Them article entitled, 9 LGBTQ+ People Explain How They Love, Hate, and Understand the Word “Queer,” because how better to explain such a nuanced term, and conglomerate of perspectives and identities, than with many, many perspectives!

Then, Beau then chats health and wellness by walking through some tips and tricks to help when you're feeling overwhelmed. this portion of the podcast ends with a 5-10 minute self-led activity, for you to better prepare for the next time you're feeling overwhelmed by jotting down what is taking up your brain space, prioritizing the things you can change and that have time deadlines, listing out different things that can help when you need to step away, and who to call when you are feeling down.
