My next guest is a feisty one. Diamond Styles has always done whatever it takes to power through any bad situation. Though some descriptions can get quite graphic, she doesn’t let any mistreatment slow her down. Like she says in the episode: Go for the Gusto.
Diamond’s resumé is beyond impressive. She’s been building a YouTube career pretty much since the video platform launched, diverted into writing, song writing and podcasting, and she was the first trans woman to attend Jackson State University. One could write an extensive book about her life, but a musical or a podcast that would honour all the songs important to her seem more appropriate.
As you might notice, Diamond likes to sing. Never has this podcast seen so much actual live music in one episode. I was almost worried I’by how much content had to be cut in order to adhere to the music licencing QueerSounds uses. In case you can’t get enough of her voice, check out the links below. In the meantime, let me know your favourite sons to sing along to!
