JADE SALAZAR

Podcast Host/Author

Jade has been part of the D.C. queer women’s community for the past decade. She is an advocate for LGBTQ and women’s rights, as well as an outspoken advocate against sexual assault.

Her passion on the show is the segment “Queer History with Jade.” She’s always loved history but really got into it after listening to the podcast “Stuff You Missed in History Class.” She feels it is important to discuss queer history because it explains issues, baggage, and triumphs that make our community what it is today. The more we understand about where we come from, the more we can avoid mistakes and work on moving forward as a cohesive community.

She says, “We are all hungry for media that really speaks to our experience.” She hopes when people sign on they learn something, enjoy themselves, and connect to this community, especially if they’re living in a place where it is not easy to do so. Jade feels honored to be part of this dynamic group of women that delves into important issues, while having a lot of fun.
