[Wild Cozy Truth 23] Sexuality, Queerness, and Coming Out with Emily Sigrist


It’s a new year and you may notice a few changes in Wild Cozy Truth, including a new intro and a new way of titling each episode. Let me know what you think!
We begin today’s podcast with an essay about body image, celebrating the coexistence of strength and elegance within every woman. Then I chat with our first guest of 2018, Emily Sigrist, host of the podcast Queer and Now. Emily graciously answers my ignorant and heteronormative questions like, “Why do you use the term ‘queer?’” and “How do you flirt with other women?” She also tells us about coming out to her family and how she met her current partner. I absolutely loved chatting with Emily and that’s definitely apparent in this interview.
