August with Rebellious Unicorns!



Voices Unheard: James Sieben

August 11 • 7:00pm

James Sieben (he/him/his) is a trans gay man. On this episode of Voices Unheard, James will talk with Jessica about how he has experienced misogyny first-hand before coming out, and how he actually now benefits from misogyny because he “passes for male”. He’ll also discuss how he feels the recent rhetoric about trans people expressed by J.K. Rowling is harmful; the issue of anti-transness in sports; and why all cis LGBT2Q+ people should care about and fight for trans rights.

About the Artist

Everyone has secrets and unflattering truths; Terez aims to showcase her truth to make fans feel more accepting of their own. Her deeply vulnerable, and personal lyrics aim to make listeners feel related to and understood, while her pop melodies and dynamic vocals make you want to dance.
