LITQB Podcast: This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves. This is a podcast for people who identify as queer or for people who might think of their relationship between their body and confining social narratives as queer. This can feel like an isolating experience. Our wounded bodies need spaces to talk about struggles with nourishment/disordered eating, body image issues, dysphoria, racism, heterosexism, transphobia, xenophobia, substance use/abuse, chronic pain/disability, body changes in parenthood, intergenerational trauma, the medical/wellness/therapy industrial complex and its lack of inclusion of queer bodies and much more. Hopefully this podcast can illustrate the connections, and resonant pain points, that we have with one another. Livinginthisqueerbody.com @livinginthisqueerbody

    10:17

    Susana Victoria Parras (@heal2gether) is the founder of Heal Together, a Guatemalan daughter, Anti-Racist, LCSW, Intersectional, Mother and Partner.  Susana is committed to justice and dignity for all peoples.  In this dispatch, we hear a testimony of the intergenerational impact of multi-systemic oppression (separation, neglect, abuse, poverty, disordered eating, alcoholism), the way this trauma lives in the body of a parentified child, and the efforts Susana is making to reflect, transform, honor grief and proclaim:  FUCK THE CONDITIONS THAT HURT CAREGIVERS THAT HURT US.   "My practice is to be a whole ass human with my child, with my partner, to keep the distance that I thought I couldn't keep because I thought I always had to be there for my parents."  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/asher-pandjiris/message

    I Knew I Had to Say it Out Loud: Nicole J. Georges

    56:35

    Nicole J. Georges is a graphic novelist and podcaster from Portland, Oregon. Nicole's podcast, Relative Fiction, adapted from her award-winning graphic memoir, Calling Dr. Laura. She is also the author of the book Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home, and the queer arts & vegan food review podcast, Sagittarian Matters. In this episode, Nicole and I cover topics ranging from punk righteousness, drawing comics, family secrets, podcasting, twelve step programs, chosen queer family, encopresis and making space for gentleness. Nicole makes the astute observation that “to be an adult, maybe, is to be less fragmented.” I urge you to check out all of Nicole’s work. She is prolific and funny and powerfully insightful. Since recording this episode I listened to every episode of the Relative Fiction podcast and I must say, if you are interested in complicated families, queerness, attachment styles, intergenerational trauma transmission, this podcast has that and more, so definitely check it out.  Email Asher at [email protected] to join the waitlist for Embodied Testimony, a 3 month program intensive, starting DECEMBER 5th The theme for this Embodied Testimony will be, quite broadly, SURVIVING ADULT LIFE AS A PARENTIFIED CHILD.

    Swimming Upstream: Sini Anderson on Late Stage Lyme, Long Covid, Queer Community Magic and the making of So Sick (2014-2022)

    1:41:23

    Sini Anderson is an award winning film director, producer, video art maker, and feminist art activist who lives in New York City. Her first feature length film, The Punk Singer -a documentary about Kathleen Hanna, premiered at SXSW in 2013 and was acquired by IFC Films. The Punk Singer received a theatrical release in 121 American cities and in 25 countries around the world. In 1994 Sini Anderson and friend Michelle Tea founded Sister Spit and Sister Spits’ Ramblin’ Road Show. From 1994-2001 Anderson and Tea held weekly shows at Blondies Bar and the CoCo Lounge in San Francisco. In 1997 Anderson and Tea produced their first, of four, Cross Country Tours. Packing two vans with 12 queer artists they zig zagged across the United States and Canada for six weeks performing 40 shows! It was such a hit, they did it again for another 3 years, gaining national recognition they were signed to Mercury Records and released 3 tour albums with them. In 2000 Sister Spit released their final album, I Spit On Your Country, on radical queer & feminist label,  Mr. Lady Records & Videos. Eventually Sister Spit would tour with over 50 queer artists and were credited with creating a queer literary scene that still thrives 20 years later as Radar Productions. Anderson was the Chief Curator and the Co-Artistic Director for The National Queer Arts Festival and has served as the president of the board of directors for The Harvey Milk Institute and the co-chair of the board of directors for The Queer Cultural Center. Sini is in the final phase of her second feature length film, So Sick (2014-2022) . The documentary is an exhaustive look at women/gender non-conforming people who are suffering so called “mystery illnesses” like Late-stage Lyme disease, Fibromyalgia, ME/Chronic Fatigue. 50 Million Americans been diagnosed with Autoimmune Illnesses, 85-90% of them are Women. So Sick uncovers infuriating truths behind women’s health care and the health care of PEOPLE OF COLOR and calls bullshit on American Medicine, Medical Education, and Bio-Medical Research, whose non-compliance with federal laws demanding Equality within government funded research, has only stoked the myth of “hysterical women” who are making themselves sick.

    Corporeal Biography: S.J Norman

    1:09:38

    S.J Norman (b. 1984) is a multi-award winning artist, writer and curator. His career has so far spanned 18 years and has embraced a diversity of disciplines and formal outcomes, including solo and ensemble performance, installation, sculpture, text, video and sound.  He is a non-binary transmasculine person and a diasporic Koori of Wiradjuri descent, born on Gadigal land.  Since 2006 he has lived and worked between so-called Australia, Germany, the UK and the continent known to many Native peoples as Turtle Island. His practice is routed through the volatile interstices of the social and the corporeal. Working extensively with durational and spatial practices, as well as intimate/one-to-one frameworks, Norman's primary medium is the body: the body as a spectacle of truth and a theatre of fantasy; a siphon of personal and collective memory; an organism with which we are infinitely familiar and eternally estranged; a site which is equally loaded and empty of meaning, where histories, narratives, desires and discourses converge and collapse. Norman frequently utilises relational and process-based choreographies as a mode of structural critique: reflected in his work is an abiding interest in the space of co- and inter-corporeality, the forces that suffuse it, and how the live act might be utilised as a mean to examine, disrupt and re-inscribe prevailing systems of social power. Drawing on embodied ancestral lineages of ceremonial praxis, Norman seeks through much of his work to implicate the body of the audience and the body of the performer as co-agents in magickal acts. He has received numerous awards for both his art and his writing, including a Sidney Myer Fellowship and an Australia Council Fellowship, two of Australia's most prestigious honors for art. In this episode, we discuss the precocity of the body, how death awareness shapes S.J’s view on life and the way being in transit helps him feel most at home and much more.
