314: Tangled Up In You with Lauren Duca

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Lauren Duca (@laurenduca), Award-winning freelance journalist. and the Author of "How to Start a Revolution: Young People and the Future of American Politics.", to chat about the role that repression took in her coming out. Lauren talks about how you can be wrapped in a Pride flag and still repress your same sex feelings, how we tend to fall into the grooves that society has made for us and what it took for her to love herself and come to terms with every part of her. We talk about femme representation and the heteronormative scripts that lead to repression and how liberating it can be to finally break free from those scripts.
