    OutSources: Dreaming with LGBTQIA youth, a Conversation with Jax Gonzalez KGNU

Host Elise Matatall speaks with queer educator and youth worker Jax Gonzalez. Jax believes that youth’s capacity to dream is a valuable resource in the fight for collective liberation.

During the show, they reference Bettina Love who wrote We Want to do More than Survive, and co-established the Abolitionist Teaching Network.

Note: Elise misspoke during the interview and stated there are twenty or so anti-LGBTQ bills, turns out there are exponentially more (over 200).
