Hola mis amores! We are back with a special edition of The Mic Drop in Spanish!!! Jared joins the crew in a talk with our Mic Drop Queen Arthur Britney, to walk the path of nostalgia and remember how they grew up being LGBTQ+ in the context of living in conservative countries, in the secrecy of basements and dark streets. This episode transcript is available in the original language (Spanish) and in English translation.
