We Want the Airwaves


Nia King's trying to figure out if her dream of making a living as an art activist is beyond reach. In this podcast, she seeks advice from other political queer artists, trans artists, and artists of color who seem to have figured out how to make art and make rent without compromising their values.

Award-winning author. Sex educator. Radio host. What hasn't this woman done? In this episode, Nia sits down with Virgie Tovar, editor of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love, and Fashion to find out what makes her tick, how she got her big break, and what advice she has for up and coming writers of color, both inside the academy and out.

 

Highlights of this interview include:
