Are You a Real Girl?

 AreYouARealWoman.jpg

Let's face it, no one wants to be asked if they're a "real girl." In this episode the Gender Rebels answer question from listeners Laura Jean and Nathalie who enjoy taking in a drag show now and again. But, they ask, what do you do when you're having fabulous fun and a random person comes up and asks "Are you a real girl?" How can a cis girl, a trans girl, or anyone respond to that? 

 

Sadly, both local CSRA gay bars we mentioned, Colosseum and Marlboro Station, are both appear to closed.

 

Also to clarify, Imam is most commonly used as the title of a worship leader of a mosque and Muslim community among Sunni Muslims. 

Also, Ramadan Mubarak to our Muslim listeners!
