In this episode me and my guest Aurora Higgs have such a rich conversation that beginning with Aurora’s experiences and insights as a transgender individual, activist, and performer. Aurora is an activist and advocate, appointed to Virginia's LGBTQIA+ Advisory Board and elected Vice Chair, and is a scholar studying for a PhD in Queer Black Media Representation, as well as a performer and content creator hoping to uplift Black trans voices and challenges.
In this conversation we explore
+ How radical self-acceptance is the first step to real healing
+ Why we need to separate morality from appearances and how people look
+ How pressures to conform ultimately harm people and how courage is really about honesty
+ Why intentionally building affirming community can save us in a time of alienation
