What a year it's been! CJ and Jenn recap the past year of our guests' Gay Agenda items, and talk about their own resolutions for the next year.

New name, pronouns, and gender, who dis? We interviewed Wyatt (he/they) a year ago, and he's back to talk about all of the new parts of his life, how he told his students, and coordinating Google calendars. Then we ask him to write new gay anthems.
Spencer (he/him) chats with us about being a drag queen as a transgender man, the expansive backstory of Draggedy Anne, and the future of drag. We write a wholesome children's book about magical drag cats.

Genderqueer theatre artist Pax Ressler (they/them) joins us to talk about non-binary representation in theatre, Shakespeare, and trying to be an activist. What starts as a Queer Counsel meeting turns into us deliberating what things are the gayest.

Wow, it's been almost a year since we started this! Jeez, a lot of stuff has changed about our identities in that time! Woof, we finally need to address that! CJ talks about being androgyne. Jenn leads us on her Gender Journey still in progress.
