Description

After decades of burying her trans identity, attorney Mia Yamamoto deliberately publicized her transition as she came out to her clients, her colleagues, and the world. From a surprising moment of tenderness from a hanging judge, to the parallels between trans rights and reproductive rights, M.R. and Mia unpack the power of visibility and advocacy.

The Golden Queers is produced, hosted and edited by Jae Singh and M.R. Raquel, with music provided by Karl Casey at White Bat Audio. Find the Golden Queers online at thegoldenqueers.org. Executive producers for The Outwords Archive are Jack MacCarthy and Bliss, and OUTWORDS’ executive director is Mason Funk.
