A very educative book on the subject

It will go a long way in sensitising people towards the plight of this misunderstood group who deserve equal right in the society.

disappointing

Expected a lot more- guess everyone is cashing in on popularity of podcasts -disappointing and lacking in emotional engagement with listener.

Great snippets of history

Tan presents this beautifully and it really makes you think how heteronormative history is and how we are taught it. More of this please (

Powerful

I went on a journey with Tan and I was fully furnished with history and the struggle of those whose lived experiences have made a path for others to live their truth. This is a powerful podcast and Tan France's narration is stellar.
