Voter Suppression and Gerrymandering - Queer Sex Ed Podcast: Episode 38

Sara and Jay are talking about voting, voter suppression, and gerrymandering this week. If you're wondering why a sex ed show is talking about this, we're excited for you to learn!

We talk about the recent attacks on the trans community by the Trump Administration as well as different types of gerrymandering, types of voter suppression, the importance of voting as harm reduction, and what we can do after the election because voting isn't enough.
