EP 96: Rural Queer Worldmaking with Queer Appalachia/Electric Dirt


CN: Discussions of suicide and addiction

We talk to Mamone of the Queer Appalachia/Electric Direct collective about the joys and struggles of rural queer life. Mamone discusses how QA/ED was born as a memorial zine project for Bryn Kelly and grew from there with her fabulous femme spirit leading the way. Now QA is working on addiction and recovery programs for queer folks in Appalachia, has a new microgrant fund program, and much more. We also talk: cultural appropriation of rural life, making queer theory accessible, how addiction culture in the US is so heteronormative, and more.

Time stamps:
OO:00-09:00 chit-chat
09:00-end interview with Mamone
