In Episode 10 I talk with Takeya Trayer. Takeya is an artist, mommy of three children, a teacher, and the author of a children's book "My mommy is my Daddy." In this episode, we talk about her homebirth experience, her community's response to her pregnancy as a Masculine of Center person, how she navigated and exited homelessness while parenting two small children, and her series of paintings that feature Black and Indigenous MoC pregnant, nursing, and nurturing figures, and her plans to expand the art in her children's book.
