Episode 7. Chosen Family

Who’s in YOUR MySpace Top 8? This week, we’re going in on chosen families. We’re discussing blood, marriage, wine, and glitter* as we think about why chosen families may be necessary, how they form, and how they provide for each other. It’s true, not all members of our chosen families are queer, but this episode is still super gay, don’t worry. We hope this episode inspires you to hold your loved ones close… or enjoy drinking your wine and eating that burrito on your own, because it’s called chosen for a reason.


* Yes, we do mean this literally but also are referring to S. Bear Bergman’s book, “Blood, Marriage, Wine, and Glitter” (2013).
