Do you think before you speak? In this week’s episode, Zoa Glows (she/her they/them, he/him) shares about coming out to her students and family. Learn about what messages he was given as a black person while navigating a big, religious family, his LGBTQ+ identities over the years, and the noise of society overall telling and teaching him to hate himself (but he rose above it!). We also discuss honoring students by giving a name + pronoun sheet ahead of time and how the term deadnaming doesn’t resonate for everyone. Have you been wondering why someone might use multiple pronoun sets? They talk about how all three sets embrace different parts of themself + as a whole person and how you can absolutely ask people how they want you to use multiple pronoun sets.
