We take a bite out of “the gender debate” with sports journalist Katie Barnes (they/them).
We reminisce about our days as student leaders at gay camp, how Katie’s educational background in history, higher education and even Russian studies has positioned them to be a leading reporter at/on the intersection of sports and gender, and the release of their new book, Fair Play: How Sports Shape the Gender Debate.
Join us in Lexington, Kentucky from November 3-5 for the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference featuring Katie Barnes as keynote. Register and make arrangements at mblgtacc.org.

About the podcast
Take the Last Bite is a podcast by the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity. It's a direct counter to the Midwest Nice mentality— highlighting advocacy and activism by queer/trans communities in the Midwest region. Through each episode, we're aiming to unearth the often disregarded and unacknowledged contributions of queer and trans folks to social change through interviews, casual conversations and reflections on Midwest queer time, space, and place.
