Episode 18: Down Low

"Lady Jae" by Antwan Williams

"Lady Jae" by Antwan Williams

Of the thousands of people incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, no one is openly gay. No one. And only a few people are comfortable enough to talk about LGBTQ life inside. In this episode we dive in: Lady Jae returns to talk about living as a woman in SQSP, and another inmate, who identifies as bi-sexual, shares his story.

Thanks to: Lady Jae and Mike Adams for sharing their perspectives on LGBTQ issues, all the guys who contributed to the yard talk, and to White Eagle for telling us about the sweat lodge at SQ, and sharing his friendship song.

“Down Low” was scored and sound designed with music by Antwan Williams and contributions from David Jassy. Here's a transcript and you can download the episode here. Now and always: props and gratitude to Lt. Sam Robinson and Warden Ron Davis for their support of Ear Hustle.

Thanks to Nectar Sleep for supporting the show.

p.s. Happy Pride Month, Ear Hustlers!
