Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… We rarely talk about interracial relationships because so what, but we’ve got a whole ass Black woman married to a whole ass white man and things get racist at her house, so here we go. We also give a quick New York Comic Con (NYCC) recap and one of our favorite cosplayer’s gives us a deep dive into what she calls her “fat, Black, geek life” and the role of white supremacist patriarchal capitalism in fandom and beyond!
This week’s hot list: You can now listen to Tea with Queen and J. on Spotify (tis lit)! Listen to Black trans women and don’t center yourself like cis trash, Check out forallnerds.com & syfywire.com for all things NYCC. Canon cosplay, fan-art, erasure, body image & desireability, Our favorite Superman on instagram is @flood_movement period. When interracial love is more than ‘love is love’ and racism from the outside world - but real raw race sh!t in your own otherwise loving marriage, and mad other sh!t.
