About the episode

On this episode, Britt Brewer welcomes popular BookTok influencer John-Paul Kunrunmi (@jpreads6) to discuss groundbreaking titles on queerness by some of the most thought-provoking BIPOC authors of our time.

What did bell hooks have to say about queerness? Is being queer really a revolutionary act? And what does sex have to do with politics? Britt and John-Paul open up about their own experiences, contemplate climbing Mount Everest, and even summon the voice of wisdom from none other than James Baldwin.

Tune in for some vulnerable real talk that will bring you a new perspective on queerness that you can bring to your work and community at large.
