We’re giving away a Supportive Sasquatch coloring page to anyone who donates or volunteers with an organization that supports Black Trans Lives! Send proof of your contribution to the show on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, or email us at believerpod@gmail.com. We’ll send back a cool coloring book page — and if you send it back to us once you complete it, it’ll be featured on Instagram. 

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: If at least 50 people provide proof of a contribution, we’ll release a special outtakes episode into the main feed. This is something I was saving for a paywall later, so this is the best way to make it available for free.

The transcript for this episode is available HERE.
