What’s up, kids?! Callie and Nichole are back together in the studio, this week having a little fun critiquing Beauty & the Patriarchy, I mean, er, cough, Beauty & the Beast – Disney’s live action version of their timeless classic Stockholm Syndrome manual!Continue reading »
Heya, I’m Calen. To start off, I identify with a few different words: vegan, activist, queer, wanderer, traveler, femme, and writer… to name a few. These words/ideas seem to be the ones that mold my experience so actively.
