On this week’s episode of Food 4 Thot we dive deep into politics, organizing, art, and activism. We’re joined by professional activist and boi-with-perfect-biceps Eliel Cruz. As writers, queer folks, and people of color (except Joe), our work is inherently connected to our bodies, and our bodies are, of course, political. But, at the same time, we all need freedom to make our work, even though it’s 2018 and the world is a burning, shit-infused trash heap. Where does this leave us? Is it enough to make work wherein queer and brown people can thrive and be whole? Is posting selfies with Audre Lorde quotes going to save us? Are there limits to protest? Are we just fucked, so we might as well just fuck?
Before we bite the end off of that spicy sausage, we lube you up with some hybrid blends and love notes. Then Teebs tells us how he fell out of love and into writing with a pit-stop in scabie-ville. And we end with our favorite dessert of all time: Queen Cardi.
Join the full discussion, tune in!
Luv u, miss u,
