Queer Natures: Transgender Trees, Lily Phalluses, and the Tale of Sinnach the Seer

April 14, 2021

In this episode we celebrate the many aspects of queer Nature both within and outside of humanity. We begin with a passage from Mica's book Poet, Prophet, Fox: The Tale of Sinnach the Seer and from there discuss queer ancestors, the dilemmas of being seen, the honored social roles given to genderqueer people in traditional societies, transgender plant life, intersex flowers, non-binary childrearing, and more.
