My homegirl Diamond Stylz in the wake of the 2016 election and the lack of balanced, facts based discussions about trans people in the media, decided to start her own platform to do precisely that called ‘Marsha’s Plate’.
The Marsha the podcast is named for is Marsha P Johnson, our pioneering Black trans elder who is credited with kicking off the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion, and who co-founded Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR) with Sylvia Rivera.
But back to talking about the ‘Marsha’s Plate’ podcast. The discussions being had on the podcast which is now up to 30 episodes are coming from a Black trans perspective.
Diamond is joined in this latest media endeavor by her co-hosts Mia Mix and Zee. They bring to the podcast discussions the perspectives of young trans masculine and trans feminine people.
And knowing Diamond, she’s not going to shy away from controversial or hotly contested topics.
Looking forward to checking it out every Thursday, and here’s the link to the show.
