If you haven’t gotten enough of me through The Feminist Tea Party, you can get your fix through my new podcast, “Mixing it up with Maggi.”
I’ll be interviewing my favorite pals for a conversation on everything from motherhood, social activism, sex, career and much more. Listen in every Wednesday night through SoundCloud or catch it on demand here on myefflinglifeblog.

 

 

 

At Barnes + Noble with Maggi: The T in LGBTQ
—–
On this episode of Mixing it Up with Maggi, I’m joined by my student Skylar. Skylar is a recent graduate of The New School as a media and gender studies scholar. They joined me to speak about the transgender community’s struggles within the larger LGBTQ umbrella. We hit on media representation, the pride parade, politics and some LGBT history.
