If These Ovaries Could Talk, with Guest Staceyann Chin

Poet and activist Staceyann Chin joins Robin Hopkins and Jaimie Kelton for a live episode of If These Ovaries Could Talk, a weekly podcast where two lesbians chat about making babies and non-traditional families when you’re outside of a heterosexual relationship.

Chin, who spoke candidly on The Oprah Winfrey Show about the dire consequences of coming out in her native Jamaica, is author of the memoir, The Other Side of Paradise. Her critically acclaimed theater piece, MotherStruck (directed by Cynthia Nixon and produced by Rosie O’Donnell) chronicled her incredible experiences about motherhood.

Expect a jam-packed evening filled with stories about single parenting by choice, coming out as an LGBTQ family and the importance of telling non-traditional family stories in the current political climate.
