CS 422: Bad Art Friend and More pt 1

Today we have all-star guest Yasmin Nair back on the show to get her take on the Bad Art Friend, the cost of being an artist who wants to be successful as well as the issues that plague the literature world in general. Yasmin is a co-founder of the radical queer editorial collective Against Equality, and the Policy Director of the Chicago queer radical collective Gender JUST.  Her work has appeared in publications like The Baffler, In These Times, Vox, and Electronic Intifada as well as in several anthologies including Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex, False Choices: The Faux Feminism of Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Queer and Trans Migrations: Dynamics of Detention, Deportation, and Illegalization.
