Jacob and Al's Intergalactic Intersectionality Adventure
Our identities and histories can be important and awesome, but they can also be a little difficult to figure out.

Oh My God! Christonormativity and Sexual Politics
Public spotlight has focused intently on reproductive justice lately: in the campaigns of presidential hopefuls, in the media, and in the procedings of the U.S. legistlature. Debates have culminated this fall in a show-down on Capitol Hill as members of Congress attempt to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
