In this episode, Blake and Julie discuss the global sales event called Pride Month, when retail corporations sell LGBTQ+-themed merchandise while not having any actual concern for queer lives.
Instead, we focus on how folx can support LOCAL QUEER MAKERS who celebrate pride every day, as Julie shares interviews from her visit to the Queer Craft Fair Night Market, interviewing local artists selling handmade goods over at Reason & Ruckus on 305 Main Street in Poughkeepsie, a bar, cafe and welcoming LGBTQ+ community space.
