Amazing interview with Prof. Richa Nagar, whose work I am just encountering for the first time; it arrives not a moment too soon for me, as I am in the final long lunges of a third draft of my dissertation proposal. This helps me get what I am doing!

Summary: Reflecting on her activist research with a people’s movement in India, Richa Nagar (Professor of Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies, co-author of Playing With Fire: Feminist Thought and Activism Through Seven Lives in India) shares stories about the importance of developing ethical relationships of trust and affect. Within and against the politics of NGOization and caste divisions, she highlights the roles of imagination, desiring, and translation in intersectional alliance work. From experiencing tensions between her positions as an activist and an academic, she notes common problems of institutionalization in both social movements and the university, and offers guidance for engaging with contradictions while maintaining some sense of security in the margins.

This year, RuPaul and Michelle Visage launched their podcast, “What’s the Tee?” It’s amazing. I cannot get enough of it. I just listened to Episode 19, the year end round-up and it reminded me how Ru and Michelle – along with amazing guests such as Latrice Royale, TS Madison, and Alaska (among many others!) – have gotten me through a very tough and transformative year. Makeup tips, meditation advice, breakup talk, queer and trans* politics, activism, & everyday life, and, of course, Drag Race behind the scenes chat. ALL DAY. Ru’s wisdom and deep truth-telling capacity paired with Michelle’s irreverent, industry-smart Jersey style is always guffaw inducing, even if there are moments that make you go “Hmmm…” That’s also what I love about the show: It trusts itself enough to name taboos, to engage controversially, and to position itself effortlessly and with total grace. And always laughing. Ru and Michelle both have incredible laughs. It’s like the best eavesdropping lunch you have twice a month. All this brilliance has made a loyal, never-miss-an-episode listener out of me. The show has softened my ear to Michelle and elevated RuPaul into one of my spiritual touchstones. A life guide! “What’s the Tee” offers so much, if you’re not sure where to start, why not with the end? Find Episode 19 here.
