In these trying times, this quote from Mary Anne Radmacher offers a reminder of how brave each of us are already… so well done!
Editor’s note: Attention, founding members! We have a fabulous guest lined up for our second edition of the Splainer AMA: Madhavi Menon, who is Director, Centre for Studies in Gender & Sexuality, at Ashoka University. She has written and spoken extensively (and brilliantly) about the history of sexuality in India—and is often nicknamed the ‘historian of desire’. So bring your questions about Bollywood, bhabhis, Mahabharata, the Kamasutra and all other sexy/sexual things under the Indian sun. Read: a review of her book here, and a wide-ranging interview here. Time/Date: 6 pm on Saturday, May 15, via Zoom. Sign up: for one of the limited slots here ASAP! Any remaining slots will be opened to the rest of our subscribers!
