Estlin Mcphee is a writer who grew up in the Bible Belt of B.C. in an Evangelical Christian household, and whose first queer role model was the fabulous and culturally disruptive George Michael. In this episode, Estlin discusses why George was so important to them growing up and why they will never get over their obsession with the Backstreet Boys. Estlin also discusses their genderqueer identity and why adolescence can be such a profound time for queer teens. This episode is a little pop culture, a little gay, a little spiritual, and a lot sweet!
