B-Sides

By Abbey Wade
Hey guys, I’m Abbey. And I want to know the sides of you that you aren’t usually asked to press play on.
Your job, your label, that box you think you need to fit inside of w/ that pretty bow you’ve been told to wrap around it? Yeah, that part doesn’t interest me.
I wanna know the sides of you that make your insides frolic.
That’s what I call your B-Side.
Your better side.
We all have one. Most of us have more than one.
Me? I’m only B-Sides.
And for the first time in my life, I’m not only ok with that... I’m really proud of that.
And that’s why I wanna meet yours.
Join me.

B-Side Lane | I Now Pronouns You
Hi, my pronouns are She/Her. Would you mind sharing yours? Done. Ice broken. Abbey talks to her friend, Lane Wilson-Powell about his incredible story. This is truly an episode you don’t want to miss, and definitely want to share. Being a part of a population other than your own is maybe not something a lot of folks can fully comprehend. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take it upon yourself to self-educate. There are plenty of ways to learn about the things that you are not. And part of being a good human is doing so.  Sign and share these petitions to help stop transphobic legislation : https://www.change.org/t/transgender-rights-en-us

B-Side Justin | Vulnerability
Abbey talks to good friend, Justin Burke about his incredible and inspirational twists and turns in life that led him to becoming an award winning pastry chef, food writer and recipe developer, queer food and parenting advocate, and his most rewarding job - father.
