UMFM - Queer Quarks <p>A queer talk and music show about a range of queer media, pop culture and current events hosted by Ley Fraser (me), a queer woman and U of M student. I've previously co-hosted another queer talk show called Queer Quarks: Beyond the Binary with Karen McDowell at UNBC, and worked as a gender advocate and educator for Transform: Trans and Non Binary Youth and Family Support (out of Northern BC) and been involved with Pride organizations for a number of years. I enjoy talking about queer topics, and I have a lot of opinions; I try to be as balanced and circumspect as possible (especially if I am not a member of the group I am talking about) but I encourage you to think critically about the issues, to check out source materials, listen to &nbsp;marginalized groups (especially about their own experiences) and respect the identities of everyone around you (because literally why not, it is free, there is no reason not except being a tool).&nbsp;</p> <p>You can email me your questions, but if it is abusive, inappropriate or an intentionally ignorant, annoying question that is a waste of everyone's time (THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO GENDERS DEAL WITH IT) I'm gonna ignore it/not talk about it on the air/or talk about it and criticize you. For those, a quick google could help you out with numerous sources and answers by people more eloquent than me. I am happy to explain, expand on and answer any questions that are posed genuinely in good faith (and if you don't want me to read them on the show just say so, and I'll just reply to you by email). So to be clear the questions I will not spend any time on are those intended in malice. If you've got good intentions, you're not sure its appropriate to ask, etc- go ahead and ask me and I am happy to give you my thoughts.</p> UMFM en-us Mon, 20 Nov 2017 15:00:00 -0700 Mon, 20 Nov 2017 15:00:00 -0700 UMFM no UMFM no Queer Quarks Mon, 20 Nov 2017 15:00:00 -0700 UMFM - Queer Quarks November 20 2017 <p>TBA</p> no 60 Queer Quarks Mon, 06 Nov 2017 15:00:00 -0700 UMFM - Queer Quarks November 6 2017 <p>Interview with Jos&eacute;e Caron and Lucy Niles<span class="bcTruncateMore"><span class="peekaboo-text">, the gay (but not for each other) Canadian talents who brought us the unique lesbian-barista-informed sound of the band Partner (TM). </span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span class="bcTruncateMore"><span class="peekaboo-text">**Its a thing, queer people and coffee.
