Jessie "Gender" Earl and Tracy E. Gilchrist, host of The Advocates podcast, sat down with NiK Kacy, founder of the first-ever gender-neutral footwear and accessories brand, to learn more about the importance of gender-equal fashion.
Kacy, Gilchrist, and Earl discuss how shoes affect the entire body, gender abolitionism, the difference between "gender neutral" and "gender equal," and much more. Gilchrist and Earl also dive into the recent controversy of Scarlett Johansson being cast as a trans man (as well as her callous dismissal of the backlash), the difficulties of staying optimistic in today's world, and the ground-breaking Hannah Gadsby: Nanette comedy special.
